Baby Congrats

Today's card is another card that I copied and modified a bit. This card was originally designed by Alex Hau ( I had to adjust the color so that you could see the elephant in the middle. In real life the colors are a bit more subdued. I started off by stamping the lion from Stampin' Up!s Wild About You set in Martha Stewart Dandelion pigment ink. I stamped him again in Marth Stewart Melon Pigment ink and cut out his mane. I colored in his eyes, nose, and mouth with a brown Marvy marker. I then adhered the mane to the lion. Next I stamped the elephant in Stampin' Up!'s Pink Passion craft ink and again in Pixie Pink craft ink. I cut out the ear from the Pixie Pink and adhered it to the elephant. Next I stamped the giraffe in Stampin' Up!s Gable Green craft ink. I punch all three out with Stampin' Up!s Scallop Square punch and matted them on baby blue cardstock. Next I adhered all three animals to a strip of white cardstock. I used Stampin' Up!s Scallop Edge punch on a strip of baby blue cardstock and adhered the white strip to that. I adhered the scalloped piece to a light pink card base. Next I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up!s 2009 Sale A Bration set Congrats in Martha Stewart Blue Sky pigmnet ink and embossed it with Stampendous clear embossing powder.
