Little Elephant Thank You

At first glance, you look at this stamp set and you think - BABIES... but I can assure you, this stamp set can be used for much more than just new arrivals.  In fact, I made a birthday card, thank you card, an anniversary card - anything BUT a baby card - just to prove a point to myself because I adore the cuteness of this pair of elephants and especially the punch!  







Here are the cutting measurements based on European sizes

The above is a stepped up version - I switched coloured card stock to Soft Sea Foam for the card base and used the Stitched Shapes framelits, Petal Pink and Silver Bakers twine, and used Petal Pink ink instead.  I also stamped extra elephants so I could punch out the ears to pop up  on mini dimensiona
