Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant Birthday card

Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant birthday card, by Paperesse.

This is a birthday card I whipped up for one of my aunts, using Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant stamp (retired) and sentiment from Cuddly Buddly Crafts Kim's Digital Stamps Round Greetings Mixed 2 sentiment sheet. These are two of my favorite digital companies – I love Di's stamps (cute without being cutesy) and these Cuddly Buddly Crafts print out sentiment sheets make it super easy to add a sentiment.

For some reason, these sentiment sheets seem to go especially well with Di's designs. You can see where I've used the same type of sentiment with this Easter card and Valentine's Day card.

Paper is a miscellaneous outlet shop find from a company called Peddy; never seen it anywhere else before, but it is a very pretty, sturdy paper. A little traditional and crinkled paper ribbon add the final touch.

Digital stamps – Di's Digi Stamps Ellie Elephant, Cuddly Buddly Crafts Kim's Digi Stamps Round Greetings Mixed 2

  4. Ok! This is a super duper cute card!!! I have a soft spot for elephants and is one is too cute!! :) Thanks for joining the girlfriends this week at Little Red Wagon!! :)

  5. Shani ça faisait longtemps!! Je suis très occupé depuis un moment et du coup je ne visite pas trop les blogs de mes copines....
    Ta carte est très mignonne! J'adore ton elephant avec ce bouquet, trop chou!
    Gros bisous mon amie :o)

  6. OMGawd Shani - love the colors in this one! You managed to pick up the pinks to burgandies beautifully from the background papers you chose - and the result is an eye catching focal image that is absolutely delightful! I love too that you have colored his cheeks with that same hue - you have such a good eye for colors girlfriend, not to mention the skill in laying them down! Factor in your trademark double matting and you just "whipped this up"? The coloring alone would take me hours. Your aunt will love it!

  7. Wonderful coloring on that adorable elephant and elegant design. Thanks for joining the challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies. hugs, Teresa DT

  8. Oh-so-cute! I'm certain your aunt was thrilled with her birthday card.
