It is birthday month for my family so I will be posting a number of birthday cards throughout the month.  Today it is a card for my Brother-In-Law.  Selecting what stamp set to use for his card was easy peasy because he collects elephants.  Henry Says was just too perfect to resist.  Paired with the Print Poetry Designer series Paper Stack from the Stampin' Up! Spring Occasions Mini catalog and  I had my basic supplies.  Henry was stamped on the designer paper with black staz on ink and then cut out & popped up on the very vanilla label.  The party hat was stamped on very vanilla c.s. and also cut out & popped up.  However, the banner was stamped directly on the very vanilla label using the stamp-a-ma-jig for placememnt.  I used markers to color the banner.
