Elephant Birthday

Happy Saturday! WaHoo I am on vacation until the New Year. I am looking forward to crafty time when the family is not around. I cleaned my desk off this afternoon in anticipation of getting busy. I still have some gifts to make for Christmas so I'm going to be pushing it for the next few days. Today I have a birthday card. I saw this technique on Jennifer McGuire's blog. It's called partial die cutting.


I had a tough time photographing this card. I had to clip it at the bottom so the top panel would stay down. Then the sequins didn't photograph very well either but I love the partial die cutting. After I partial die cut the elephants from the WPLUS9 set Unforgettable, I lined up the stamps on my MISTI and stamped all three at the same time. I colored them in with Copics. His toenails are colored pink so I added the pink as a background and as a frame. I had some stray black ink marks and didn't want to start over so I strategically placed some sequins to cover the marks. I was really pleased the way it turned out.
I am entering these challenges:

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. One of our sons is driving in today so we'll get to spend some time together. Thanks for stopping by.
