I saw this darling paper-pieced elephant on a display board at Convention last year and I knew then that I would use it on a card.  When Stampin' Up came out with the Pop 'n Cuts Die and the Dress Form Pop 'n Cuts Die, my mind started racing with how I might incorporate all three. After tweaking the elephant so that it would fit, the card came together rather quickly.

Elephant inside

The World Spectatcular dsp fits the circus theme perfectly,  All I needed to do was use the Labels Collection framelits to cut out a key phrase. The elephant ears are cut from the Butterfly Bigz Die.

I felt that the outside of the card needed to welcome you enough that you would want to look inside.  Here's what I created for the outside.  Again, no stamping.  I just cut the dsp with the Windows Frames Collection.
