Cheapo Dies - Elephant Love

Hello Dear Friends!
Today I'm sharing a sweet card for your 'Sweetie'
using dies from the Cheapo Dies Store.
The dies I have used today are:

Cheapo Dies - Elephant Love
Cheapo Dies - Cursive Font
I had some fun creating with this adorable elephant die and as I was creating this card my mind was swirling with other ideas ... i.e.,  a child's birthday card, a baby card (pink elephant or blue) or you could cut off the heart balloons and just use this adorable little guy all by himself.) 
 Here's a few steps taken for today's card share . . .

I die cut from three different colors of card stock ... white (entire die), pink (elephant) and red (balloon bouquet).  After adhering the red balloons over the white, I decided to add back in the pink balloons that I had cut from the elephant and tucked them in behind the red ones.  This gave me a BIG bouquet of balloons when completed.

I placed a little square of black card stock on the back of my elephant to give him a more defined eye.

Isn't he just the cutest!  
And the markings on his ears & legs die cut beautifully!!
Fabulous definition!

I've popped him up on a couple stackable hearts created using the Tutti Designs 'Nesting Stitched Hearts'
 Tutti Designs - Dies - Nesting Stitched Hearts
 then added my sentiment off to the side.  
By using these 'font' dies, you can spell out what ever you want ... how cool is that!
REMEMBER ... Valentine's Day is right around the corner!!
I hope you've enjoyed what I've shared today, and, if you're not familiar with Cheapo Dies, you are missing out!!!
