This week's at Cricut Cards Challenge, we had to create a juvenile birthday card using an animal that you would find in a jungle. I chose the cute and playful elephant found on the New Arrivals Cricut cartridge. It has a round shape and looks like a small baby elephant which I thought was just right for this card. I cut the elephant using a pink paper which had a cute star burst design. I shaded portions of the elephant using my Copic markers and added googlie eyes and a hot pink bow. Perfect for that little girl who will receive the card.
What would an elephant need nearby but a cute palm tree so she can stretch her back and trunk. The palm tree was cut using the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge. I think the foliage looks very realistic after embossing it.
Both the elephant and the palm tree were mounted on a background made up of a torn piece of cardstock on top of a turquoise base. And a simple "birthday wishes" is stamped nearby.
Come and join us for this challenge and let's see what jungle creature you can bring to life on a child's birthday card. See you later alligator!
