Elephant Peek-a-boo

Hi Stampers.  Are you ready for a giggle? I saw a card like this in one of the Facebook groups I belong too.  It made me laugh and I knew I had to make some! This card is made with the Playful Pals stamp set and matching Pyramid Pals Thinlit Dies and the Botanical Blooms stamp set with matching Botanical Builder Framelit Dies.

This card was made with a Mossy Meadow card base and the Botanical Gardens DSP.  Both of these have retired last month.  But, do not fear, it could be done with either Garden Green or Always Artichoke and another paper with leaves – or better yet – stamp your own DSP!  I adhered the DSP to the card front and then cut a square out of the front of the card with the square framelits. I stamped the elephant pieces onto Basic Gray card stock with Basic Gray ink and cut them out with the framelits and sponged all the edges with Basic Gray ink. I stamped the eyes onto Whisper White card stock with Basic Gray ink and colored the eyelids and around the eye with a Basic Gray marker.  I stamped the leaves from the Botanical Blooms stamp set onto Mossy Meadow card stock and cut them out with the Botanical Builder framelit dies.  I cut the flowers out of Calypso Coral card stock and put a small pearl accent in the center of each flower.

The inside of this card is what got me laughing.  How cute is this?  The back half of the elephant hanging out on the inside of the card!  LOL  I then added a layer of Smokey Slate card stock to the inside of the card.  You could add any kind of sentiment to the interior of this card or leave it blank to write your own message.  The recipient is sure to get a giggle out of it, too!

Happy Stamping,
