Baby Elephants

I wanted to use these Elephant stickers to make a baby card for this months Paper Crafts Baby Challenge and I couldn't figure out what to do with them. Then, tonight this came to me. I really like it because the black is unexpected for baby, but I think it works.

Card stock - Whisper White, Basic Black (Stampin' Up)
Stamp Set - Short & Sweet (Stampin' Up)
Ink - Black (Stampin' Up)
Stickers - Mrs. Grossman - Simply Sassy (I love that they're Mrs. Grossman, I used to fill up sticker books as a kid with Mrs. Grossman stickers.)
Twine - Charcoal - The Twinery
Embossing Folder - Dots (Stampin' Up)
Die - Tasteful Trim (Stampin' Up)
Punches - Word Window, Modern Label (Stampin' Up)

1. Make card from card stock
2. Cut a 2 inch strip of black card stock and run through the Tasteful Trim die and adhere to card
3. Place elephant stickers on the card. 
4. Add twine (it easiest to adhere if you just rub glue all over it and you will get messy)
5. Stamp sentiment then punch with word window
6. Punch black scrap with modern label punch and adhere word window to it
7. Punch small holes in black background
8. Put twine through the holes and tie on the back of the card
