Pink Elephant

Hi Everyone!!!  Today is my daughter's baby shower, so this post will be very short. 

I made another baby card, however, this time it is a shaped card.  An elephant to be exact.  Take a look................

As you can see, there really is much explaining to do with this one.  However, I did use my gypsy and the cricut cartridge "Holiday Cakes".  You can find this cute little thing on page 38 of the manual.  I took image <Love2-s> and hid all parts.  I then copied, flipped and welded my elephant so she faces you from the right.  Her height is 4 1/4"  and was cut on white cardstock.  I then cut another elephant in pink polka dot paper from Recollection (6x6 - The Bright and Basic Pad).  Finally, I just cut out the ear in pink cardstock and attached it with foam tape.  Glued a googly eye and tied a white ribbon bow around her tail. 

For the name "AVA".  I cut the letters at 1" in white cardstock using the Cricut cartridge "Something to Celebrate".  The "a" is located on page 42 and the "v" is located on page 55.  After cutting them, I sponged stamp pink ink from Studio G around the letters.  Attached them to the card with foam tape.  Then finalized them with pink liquid pearls.

OK, so off we go to my daughter's baby shower.  I sure hope she likes this card.  I can guarantee that no one else will arrive with the same card (lol).  Have a wonderful Saturday...... ~ Shawn
