This week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments, they are having a clean and simple challenge (fun!), which I paired with the color challenge over at Just Add Ink (JAI84), where we are to use Whisper white and a color of choice. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Crumb Cake (can't get enough of it) so after stamping my sweet little elephant in Versa Mark, I then heat embossing the image with Clear Embossing powder for a subtle impression. I added a piece of coordinating ribbon off to the side and stamped my Congratulations sentiment in Basic Black, from the RETIRED Well Scripted stamp set. I also corner rounded the edges to soften the card a bit. I love making simple cards to celebrate people, a new job or a new little life in this case. A childhood friend is pregnant with her fourth child and I remember her bed being surrounded by stuffed elephants, which is why I chose our stout little friend.
