Adorable Elephant Card with Zoology and Elemental

One of the very best things about a new Idea Book is seeing all the wonderful new artwork - not only do I use it for inspiration but sometimes I like it so much I just copy it right out of the book!  I fell in LOVE with the new Zoology stamp set when I saw this adorable little elephant card in the new book.  I admit I'm a sucker for any kind of animal stamp (I have a whole drawer of just critter stamps) but this set also has a fab ticket and several awesome smaller scale sayings to add to projects.
When I first set out to copy this card I didn't even realize that they had actually made the center panel into the card closure.  It wasn't until I was making it that the full cuteness of this one in action dawned on me!  Here is the front panel swinging out (its held closed by the silver photo clip).

And here is the card fully opened.  Isn't that clever?  Our new 6x6 scalloped die cut Kraft cards are da-bomb!  They come in a 10 pack with kraft enevelopes for just $6.95.  You can even use these as photo cards because of the size - just slip a 4x6 into the center of the card!

Thank you CTMH art department!  You ROCK!

Great Card! I hadn't even noticed it yet in the Idea Book...it takes me many, many times through the book to "see" everything!
