Elephant Greetings!

What a fun week it's going to be for the Stampendous Design Team with our theme of "Where the Wild Things Are"!!! Stampendous has sooooo many great images that work perfectly for this fun theme! Lucky for me, because I'm part of the team, Stampendous has provided me several of these to create lots of samples!

Today I'm sharing the Dreamweaver Open Elephant stencil (DWLG756) paired with the Pop Rectangles stencil (DWLJ929) in the background to create a Welcome Baby card. Just by changing the base card color, you can make it girlish, boyish, don't knowish (pale yellow or green).  Plus, it's pretty quick and easy.

Step 2:  Die cut a white and dark teal layer from the Fitted Frames set B size R for the elephant, and size K for the saying
Step 3: Tape the Elephant stencil to the white die cut frame with removable tape
Step 4:  Use the palette knife to mix a small dollop of Regular and an equal amount of Silver embossing pastes together on a piece of freezer paper until well mixed, this will create a matte silver paste, use the paste spreader to apply a coat across the elephant stencil, remove the stencil and place in water for cleaning, let image dry
Step 5:  Tape the Pop Rectangles stencil to the front left side of the card with removable tape
Step 6:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply a coat of Glossy White Embossing Paste over the rectangles, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning, let paste dry well
Step 7: Stamp the Welcome Baby on the small white frame using Tuxedo Black ink, then adhere to the matching Spearmint mat
Step 8: Round the corners of the card
Step 9: Adhere the elephant to it's matching frame, then use foam tape to attach it to the card front
