Elephant Babies

Popping in with a sweet card for a new baby!  This was at the request of a friend who needed a baby congratulations card.  Just this morning we were talking about 3 new babies due or overdue in the coming week at Church.  Our nursery is bursting!  It is such fun to celebrate new little lives with people you care about!  

Our little elephant from MFT’s set Adorable Elephants, is stamped in a cool gray ink, and coloured up with Copic markers in a no-line look.  I added the 3 balloons in gones that matched this fun paper from Echo Park - It’s a Boy collection.  A touch of baker’s twine holds that little stack of ballons together.  

After sewing the layers together I added the stitched clouds from TCP, which add to the sweet floating in the sky theme.  

Here’s the inside with an old sentiment I had in my stash which worked perfectly!  

And here are the Copics I used.  

That’s it from me today!  I’ll be back tomorrow with something sweet and ‘seasonal’- especially in our northern climate!

Ooh, Christine, this is SO darling! I absolutely love this amazing elephant you've colored to perfection, and what a sweet layout with this fabulous DP! Beautifully done and even finished off with stitching! Stunning and darling! And how precious that your nursery is bursting with dear little ones! Such a blessing! Hugs, sweet friend!

An aptly named set, for sure! This elephant is way adorable and your card is a sweet and beautiful setting for him. Precious!
