Mama Elephant – Moo-chas Grass-ias Thank You Card

Hi friends! The rest of the week on my blog is slam packed but I wanted to pop in this morning with a fun Mama Elephant thank you card. It’s punny and cute and all the things I love…plus cows! I love cows a ridiculous amount. They’re just so cute!

I missed the Zodiac critter band wagon when they were releasing with Mama Elephant years ago so I’ve been slowly collecting them all the last few months. Today I have the Zodiac Ox set with some accessories from Zodiac Tiger too. I stamped and colored them with my copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Then I used liquid glue to adhere the accessories in place.

Just before Doodlebugs took a little vacation I snuck in another order to pick up the Mama Elephant Thank You (Love You) stamps and dies along with the Diamond Stripes dies too. For my background, I cut the stitched version in the Diamond Stripes from three colors and glued them to the top of my panel. I saved the rest in a clear pocket so I have them for another card later on.

Next, I stamped and die cut the big thank you from Thank You (Love You0 and used the coordinating die to cut it out. Instead of using one of the mini sentiments in that set, I used the one in Zodiac Ox because PUNS! Seriously. It’s hilarious and I love it…especially with the taco in his hands.

*Tip – to cut the sentiment into a strip, I used the non-stitched Diamond Stripes plate to cut a scrap of cardstock and stamped in that. Then I just trimmed the edges off. Voila! Perfect sentiment strip with no extra dies needed.

I added some ground to the bottom of the panel with gathered twigs distress oxide and spritzed it with water. I also splattered a little ink on the area for a little texture. Then I added thank you and my cows with foam squares.

For finishing touches, I added black glaze pen to their eyes and Touch of Gloss to their snouts, hat and the cherry.
