This fun card is great for Males or Females and also its pretty handy to keep in your card stash.

You will need:

You will also need:

  • Elephant Stamp (Simon Says Stamp)
  • Watercolour Ink Pad and Watercolour Paints
  • Hooray Die (My Favorite Things)
  • Greeting (Uniquely Creative)
  • Balloon Die (Paper Smooches)
  • Glitter Card
  • Silver Embossing Powder (WOW)
  • Heat Gun
  • Twine
  • Background Stitch Dies (Mama Elephant)


For the card base I trimmed down a piece of White Card Hopsack 255gsm to 4 1/8" and scored at 5 7/8".

I then used a piece of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm and run this through my die cutting machine using the stitches die. I adhered this onto the card base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then stamped and water coloured the elephant and trimmed him out. I die cut the balloon and using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm I tied twine to the balloon and stuck the rest behind the elephant. I adhered them onto my card.

I then die cut the word hooray using some White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and adhered onto the card with some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I then heat embossed the sentiment onto some White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and trimmed this down. I then adhered this to the card with some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

Your card is now complete.
