Handmade Elephant Birthday Card

No matter how many cards I make, I always seem to need more Birthday Cards.  When I spotted this elephant driving a car filled with gifts and balloons, I knew that I NEEDED it.

Yes, I know! I know! I have a room full of stamps and card making supplies, but I really did “need” this stamp by Wild Rose Studios.  I put this stamp on my Amazon Wish List, and my awesome husband got it for me for Christmas. 

This Birthday Card has a sweet adorable elephant driving a car full of presents and balloons. This handmade greeting card will surely wish someone a very happy birthday!

 

Supplies used for this Birthday Card

 

Instructions

  1. Fold 8 1/2″ x 11″ White Card Stock in half to use for card base.
  2. Attach Large Red Card Stock to card front and blue dotted paper to the red card stock using scrapbook adhesive.  
  3. Use scalloped punch to decorate the edges of the yellow gingham paper and attach to center of card.
  4. Attach red gingham paper to the card.  I tilted it slightly, but if you like it straight, that’s fine too.
  5. Using black ink, stamp the elephant stamp on the white card stock.  Since I was coloring this with Copic Markers, I used X-Press It Card Stock and Momento ink which is permanent.  
  6. Color the image.  If you don’t have Copic Markers, use other markers or colored pencils.
  7. Adhere the colored image to the red card stock and attached it to the card.
  8. Layer flowers and buttons to finish your card.  I attached them with glue dots, since it holds dimensional items better than scrapbook adhesive.

I love how this birthday card turned out.  The layout is very simple and can be adapted for other occasions and holidays.  Change the colors, stamp, flowers, and buttons and make your own creation.
