Baby Card: “Zoo Babies” Style

Just this past week I have had two friends welcome baby girls into their lives.
So I just had to make a gorgeous “Welcome Baby” greeting card for them, featuring a baby elephant from the “Zoo Babies” stamp set.


The card base is Crumb Cake, with Naturals White as the overlay.

The base is stamped with the “Hardwood” stamp in “Sahara Sand”.
And “Sahara Sand” is also used to sponge the Naturals White card-stock.
I used the Masking Tape Technique for the sky in “Soft Sky”, and “Sahara Sand” for the earth, along with the “Gorgeous Grunge” stamp set for the speckled dirt.


The accent colour of “Strawberry Slush” is used to tie in with the little girl theme.
The words “Yippee-Skippee!” are from the “Yippee-Skippee!” stamp set, and “welcome, baby” and “so glad you’re here!” are from the “Petite Pairs” stamp set
The ear of the elephant is a ¾” circle of Strawberry Slush cardstock that has been crippled 8x to break down the cardstock fibres. The circle is then separated into 2 pieces, folded in half and a tiny brad added to resemble a pierced ear/earring!
A Candy Dot and Rhinestones anchor the corner of the card.
I just love the {outgoing} Strawberry Slush Ruffle Trim which finished the card of nicely.
And on the inside of the card ...
