Celebrate Big!

CelebrateBig wm

Hi everyone,

I created this card for my sister who celebrated her birthday yesterday, she collects elephants so I had to purchase this one recently from Whimsy Stamps, as I knew it would be perfect to use for her card.

My card is an Easel card, which is inspired by one I saw recently in a magazine where they had used the 3 skinny panels behind the main image on their easel card.

Here is another view of my card, so you can see that it is an Easel card. I added the sentiment “Herd it was your Birthday”, as I thought it fitted seeing Elephants normally travel in herds.

Here is a view of the back of my card. I added the designer paper to the back panel as it would be seen when the card was closed.

And finally, my card when it is closed. I know she will love this!
