Elephant Birthday Card

The brief was simple for this card …… elephants!
Sizzix Elephant card 3
I used a Sizzix die that I have had for a while, cutting out four elephants on my BigShot .  I stuck them, using foam pads for extra dimension  onto a check background, which is actually green graph paper, to continue the squared effects.

I’ve added faux stitching, a bead eyes and a ribbon on the tails to complete the elephants.

The card is completed with a sentiment, broken into three parts using self adhesive letters and backed on red card.  If I were to make this card again, I don’t think I would put in the mouths, they seem a bit low to me.
