Ele-Fun Birthday!

Hello Everyone!

Today has been a chilly and windy day!  I think fall has finally set in.  I have made a double diagonal fold card today.  My husband says that I should not make this style because things will get lost.  I beg to differ!  I think they are unique!

I found the idea over at SCS in the resources area.  Here is the link.

 I choose cosmo cricket double sided paper in a fun theme for a birthday card.  The sentiment is by Stampin Up and the image is a High Hopes stamp, Ele-fun.  Isn't he the cutest little guy?  I would celebrate my birthday with him anytime!

The first pocket holds the High Hopes sentiment stamped on a die cut by Spellbinders.  I inked the edges in Tim Holtz distress ink and shifted the background layer a bit to add some contrast.  Finish it with some ribbon and a flower to match.

The second pocket holds a little envelope.  This is where my husband and I disagree.  My opinion is that this is a great place for a gift card.  He thinks no one will look at it and the card will go to waste.  Anyhow, the little envelope is covered with paper and a little Stampin Up sentiment finished off with ribbon colored with copic markers to match.

The little elephant is colored with copic markers and finished off with prisma pencils for extra shading.

Copics used:
Elephant:  C0, C1, C3, C5, R20, R21, R22
Hat/Cupcake Holder:   YR15, YR12, YR18
Cupcake:  Y02, Y04, Y06
Toe/Husk - W1, 0
Candle/Ball:  B91, B93, B95

Pocket # 2

Pocket 1

Thanks for looking!  I hope you enjoyed the card.  Your comments are much appreciated!
Have a great day!
