There is something outrageously exciting about receiving a special delivery and something so irresistibly charming coming from an unexpected deliverer, like this adorable elephant. I created this card for a friend, who lives just across town, in hopes she would feel outrageously excited upon its arrival in her mailbox and to bring a smile to her day.
The images I used on this card from Stamps By Judith and Heather are the following:

I stamped the elephant on the main white cardstock base and again on an additional piece of white cardstock. I colored both elephants with COPIC Markers and cut one out to layer with foam squares on the main white cardstock base. I then stamped the flower pot twice on the additional white cardstock colored with COPIC Markers, cut them both out, and adhered one over the bird on the elephant’s back. The additional flower pot was attached with a foam square for a 3D effect. Stamping the flower image twice on the additional white cardstock and alternating their petals gave this bloom a whole new look just perfect for the elephant’s back. Additional flowers were stamped and cut out to adhere with foam squares to the corner of the card. The stem of the potted flower was created using the skinny stamper and masking technique.
Here is a closer view of the 3D look created with foam squares:
The final layout was completed by layering color coordinating papers and adding a computer generated sentiment. Using so many images in new ways made for some marvelous creating.
