If you’re anything like me, you always need belated birthday cards – I am so bad about getting cards out on time!

Well today, get ready for some SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE over the cutest lil elephants ever! This lil elephant is from the brand new WPlus9 stamp set called “Unforgettable” that’s releasing today – ohmygosh how CUTE, isn’t he??

Belated birthday card ideas

In the video, I show you how I *finally* got to make a card on which I could deliberately create a tilted panel. My backgrounds never quite work with this style of card, and I think it’s so fun to combine the angles like this! But text on an angle makes me nuts, so I had to figure out how to achieve this without my stamped sentiment going wonky. Find out how in the video below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Isn’t that just so much fun? And so simple too. Maybe others have long-ago figured out the secret to the kittywompus panel, but I’m slow to tackling things sometimes! But I am just so thrilled to have this stamp set and need to work on more belated birthday card ideas with it – and maybe I’ll even delay some birthday cards just so I can use these cute elephants! I’m sure if it’s a card this cute, no one will mind getting it late!

Here’s a closeup of the polkadots I created with my white pen:

Besides elephants being great for belated birthday card ideas – since they apparently never forget – I also have a ‘thing’ for elephants – so I especially love this little stamp set. The colored pencil drawing below is one I created wayyyy back in 1998 (GASP!). I had a dreamone night that I was a baby elephant, surrounded by legs!

PS! I wanted to say a big thank you to all of you for your lovely comments on my Toastmasters Speech uploaded yesterday. Oh MY! I never quite expected that outpouring. Please know that my inbox is flooded with life-stories right now, and since I am heading out of town shortly, I may not get to replies for some time.
