Little Elephant CAS Card

Hello there!
Today's card uses the adorable Elephant Builder Punch, I did use the stamp set too but only for the sentiment. I teamed it with some of the Petal Promenade DSP to make a little train of ellies, lets see....

Now, you'll see in this image how they punch out usually. Obviously this wouldn't work for this card as I wanted the baby Ellie to hold the bigger ones tail so...
TIP: Punch one large elephant in the regular way and flip the DSP over and punch the little one in reverse. I then use a bone folder and run it around the edges to smooth them out so the rough edges aren't showing. 
I also inked the edges of the elephants lightly using a sponge and my smoky slate ink pad before adding them above some cute star paper from Twinkle, Twinkle DSP.
TIP 2: This is a great way to use those small offcuts of DSP.
Finished with a tiny Fresh Fig card heart (from the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch) and a matching mini ribbon bow.
Thanks so much for looking today. I have a busy day today but I'm hoping to get my craft on this evening :-) I hope you get a chance to craft too!
