And more elephants

There's a bit of a joke with a certain friend over a customer who wanted an elephant card.  Said customer is, fair enough, quite particular but not very forthcoming with information, so for her daughter in law's birthday I ended up with a surplus of elephant cards.......it took a few makes for her to choose one she really liked (which was nothing like the original brief!).

So when said certain friend's husband emailed me asked me to make his anniversary card to said friend, and he mentioned the elephants, it was a challenge I could not refuse.



I used the MFT Adorable Elephants stamp set, aren't they just the cutest?
The little twiddly heart between them is in the set too
Coloured with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment from Paper Smooches
Martha Stewart border punches, top and bottom
Purple papers are Nitwits and the pink is Dovecraft I think (but might not be)

I think said friend was happy, her husband certainly was

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Cuteness overload - I love this card Squirrel...xxx

Annette said...

I can only imagine that said friend appreciated the joke (and it's probably a good thing that she likes heffalumps to start with, I suspect). It's a lovely card honey, beautiful shading on those cute little ellies, and my favourite colours of pink and purple. Like others have said, the only thing better than a heffalump, is two heffalumps. Love you xxx

Well I hope you only had to make one version of this card! I would think so since this is a fabulous design and utterly adorable too.
The pretty punched heart borders look beautiful and add such great detail without being too fussy :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
