Congrats ladies! Now, here is the final card in our Pinterest-to-reality week! We only had the Elephant Mobile Card left to make, so we did! If you missed our post on Monday you can read it here. Tilly from This, That and Everything In Between made the original inspiration card:

The thing we loved most about this card was the mobile, it is so precious and the string really adds to the whole look. We really wanted to duplicate the cuteness of the patterned elephants, and we think ours looks great! We used three different paper pads and some plain grey cardstock for this card. (The card base, envelope, accents and sentiment we’re all designed in our design software.) We love the different metallics and colors in this baby boy card!

We used the cutest little heart gem in the middle of the mobile base + it’s just the right touch of aww in this masculine baby card. Although it seems quite simple, this was actually the hardest card for us to recreate. We cut about 20 different elephants to get the ones that looked just right together and assembling the mobile wasn’t very easy. We are happy for the challenge and loved making all of these Pinterest inspired cards this week!
