This elephant baby card will have you saying “awwwwww”! The Little Elephant Bundle (stamp set and coordinating Elephant Builder Punch) are an adorable and easy way to create cards for expectant moms and dads – and beyond!
The elephant and border images include a plaid texture background allowing you to stamp them in a solid color but give the appearance that you fussed piecing them with designer paper. This stamp set also includes a trio of balloons, hearts, flowers and an umbrella plus varied greetings that can be used for birthday and thank you. The greetings have a super fun font, too!
I’ve included written instructions for today’s elephant baby card tutorial below along with an option for the free PDF tutorial download. Whether you choose to copy, print or save this tutorial, I’m certain the layout and/or the colors will inspire you.
