Chase's A Little Wild Little Loves Elephant Birthday Card For Sarah

Chase's girlfriend Sarah had a birthday recently and he asked me to make her a card. She loves elephants, so I borrowed A Little Wild and the matching framelits from my upline Betty. Then I had Chase look on Pinterest to find a card he liked. He found one from Mary F but he wanted different colors. So I started sending him pictures as I made it, giving him choices. Here's the final card and a coordinating envelope, followed by pictures of the process. 


Sarah's favorite colors are purple and blue, so he picked out Perfect Plum and Tempting Turquoise. I did samples both way so he could decide which he liked better: 


He picked Plum for the card base and Turquoise for the frame:


He decided he wanted the "wild about you" greeting on the front. When I stamped it I got a stray mark of ink, so I covered it up with Enamel Shapes:


Then I found some "Happy Birthday" stamps that fit under the elephant for the inside:


Here's the finished inside:


And the back:


It was fun making this with his help! And Sarah loved the card!
