A Child’s C&S Valentine

HELLO everyone and a very Happy Tuesday to each of you!

I made today’s card with Stampin’ Ups A la Carte stamp ‘Elebration’.  He normally holds a balloon and birthday cake.  I kind of overrode it with a heart.  Hope you like it!!


I first stamped the image (masking the balloon) and then heat embossed it with clear EP.  With my paper snips I did a little fussy cutting, cut the outline of the elephant and just in front of the cake I slipped a heart into his hands.

The ‘just for you’ is from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamping one word at a time and punching it out with the BoHo Blossom Punch.  Each word is mounted on a flag using the Petite Pennants Builder Punch.  The color combo was arrived from using a couple snippets from the Big Top Birthday DSP.  Keeping with a diamond pattern throughout the card, I used the SU! Background -Textured Plates.


Pennants and Elephant were popped up with the use of dimensionals.  While Tempting Turquoise ribbon was used to connect the pennants.

Peeking inside ~


Sentiment is again Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Heart to Heart punch was used for the two hearts.

A quick and easy child’s card for sure, not a lot here to elaborate on, but if you should have a question…….you know I’m just a click away!

THANKS for stopping by ~ I LOVE the company!!!!  *smiles*

So cute Linda. I might case it for one of my great-grandsons'

Theresa said...

Very cute. I love that you changed up the image by adding a heart for Valentines.

I love this card and I just ordered the 'elebration' stamp with my SAB order last night! I think I'll make mine with the words changed around though--to 'just for you'. (If you don't mind me casing it.)

Linda said...

Hi Linda - Love the way you changed up what the elephant was holding. Genius! I was going to make a clever comment about the word order, but a few ladies beat me to it. Then again, I couldn't have topped the Yoda comment ;)

Love your card Linda! I think it is great that you used a heart instead of the cake - that makes the image suitable for a number of occasions!
