Awww, what a sweet little elephant card! I love that you can use old papers and give them new life through the creation of this card.

I believe it is still fashionable to send invitations through the mail. I think it shows a level of class no matter what the event is. From a children's birthday party to a wedding I think it shows you cared enough about the guest to spend a few extra minutes to create an invitation.

With all of the different craft ideas that I am finding and wanting to make, I find myself with a stock pile of a lot of materials. However, I am lacking the paper that was suggested for this Ephemera Elephant Card. I do have some other paper that would be substitued in the mean time. Thanks for all the directions on this.

This is TOO CUTE!

This is incredibly adorable. Elephants are a symbol of good luck and the different layers give this card such personality. Another great look would to ink the edges lightly to show off the ephemera a bit more. But it is a great card. Thank you for sharing.

This is the perfect card for my cousin. She's elephant-obsessed. Can't wait for her birthday to come!

I love this. My best friend adores elephants so I think this would be the perfect card for her! Too bad her birthday isn't until February.
