Sweet Little One Elephant Onesie Note Card

My card basket is lopsided on the blue to pink ratio! Add one to the blue side.

I stamped the elephant in gray and embossed. I wanted it to have more loft, so I overstamped in VersaMark (clear) and embossed again. Perfect!  Good thing I left the elephant stamp on the MISTI, so lining up the second stamping was a no brainer.

Supplies:  Stamps – Simon Says Stamp, Stampin’ Up!, Sugar Pea Designs, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Night of Navy, inks – Lawn Fawn Manatee, Stampin’ Up!
