Chic Chevron Baby

So many babies this year and so many of them baby girls!  I wonder if it's something in the water? Or in the rain?

Most of the stamps used on this card came from Stampin' Up's Hello Henry set.  All except for the centrepiece - a golden elephant.  I shall rename her, Henrietta.

Faint droplets of rain are showering Henrietta and the bunting which she is vainly keeping at bay with her umbrella.

Henrietta herself was cut out separately using a Bosskut Gazelle cutting tool.  The benefit of this wonderful device is that any cut-file can be resized to accommodate your needs.

A chevron stencil was made using a punch.  The background card was then lightly sponged in grey and yellow to create the pattern you see - this chevron pattern was continued in the washi tape added to the right hand edge.

Tie a yellow ribbon around the roses and the card . . .

. . . then finally a matching envelope to finish to package.
