Elephant for Christmas

How about an elephant card for Christmas?
I came up with this card:
Father and son elephant getting their Christmas tree
was my idea for this card.
The tree and the elephants are rubber stamps by
Michael Strong.
You can find his collection here:

In the background I  used a piece of scrap paper
from my 6x6 Christmas paper pad

 This is the inside of the card.
On a piece of the left over scrap paper
"Happy Holidays"is stamped from the
Michael Strong "Words&Phrases" set.
The Christmas tree is stamped with
peeled paint distress ink and this is also rubbed
around the border of the paper.
Here a close up of the elephants (if you click on the photo
you get an even larger version). You can see the big elephant is
embossed in gold and silver embossing powder.

The tree is embossed in white an green paper and when 
 cut it out I added the stem of the tree and colored it brown
with a pencel. Then taped it to the elephant on the back
and wrapped some scrapfloss around it, so it looks like
he really carries it.

The photo corners where embossed with a folder
in the cuttlebug.
Have a creative day!
