Do the Elephant Walk...

To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

I wanted to create a more 'masculine' looking card and thought the elephant (I must be on an elephant kick!) image went perfectly with the "Thinking of You" sentiment. I also gave myself the challenge of using some of my Stampin' Up In-Color paper, ink, and ribbon! For a more three-dimensional look, I stamped the elephant twice. I then cut out one elephant and mounted it over the first with foam squares. This card's design inspiration came from a sketch on Card Positioning Systems (with a little help from Mary Fish.)
