Precious Little Baby

 Today I have a DT project for
Simply Create Too

Our Theme: Animals
Please visit the challenge blog and share all your Animal Creations with us!

This week I used a file from My Scrap Chick. I like using their Trio sets. These never disappoint and come with a variety of options for your crafting needs. Often in these sets you will find some kind of box with a matching card and gift tag or maybe a treat topper. Sometimes they include a scrapbook page. There are lots of animal themes for these trios, but also many other themes as well such as the Train Trio.
Today I am working with the Elephant Belly Box Trio.
I decided to use the card to make a baby card for a pretty special little girl that is on her way. I am so excited for the parents of this sweet baby! The baby is due in May and I can hardly wait!

Here is my card.

My cardstock base comes from a paper warehouse near my home. I can buy precut A2 size pieces in a variety of colors for 3 cents each. It is so nice to just score and fold.

The DP is Debbie Mumm's Baby Girl. It is a stack that was created for JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts. I have had it awhile so I am not sure if it is still available.

My grey and pink cardstock for the elephant is American Crafts (AC).

I used Valentine Cherry Cupcake from Trendy Twine to add my tag.

My tag and sentiment comes from My Craft Spot and is from
the Tiny Tags collection. I first stamped the tag and cut it out and then stamped the sentiment. I used Papertrey Ink's Raspberry Fizz ink.
The chalk on her cheeks are from Stampin' Up. They are called Stampin' Pastels. I have had them for such a long time and they are still my go to for chalks. Not even sure if Stampin' Up still carries them.

I hope you enjoyed the card and that you will stop by my blog often. Let's be friends. Hit the follower button at the top right and leave a comment letting me do so, and then I will stop by yours and do the : same.

Super cute elephant. Your doodling makes it just perfect. I am always afraid I will mess up the white gel pen, but I think I should practice more. It sure does add a "pop" to the character.

Really cute card. Love the little touches such as the pink chalk cheeks, and white pen doodling.

You're really lucky to have that paper store so near your home. I'd probably spend my whole paycheck there. This card is adorable. Enjoy the little girl when she comes!
