My Mum collects elephant ornaments. She has hundreds! I don’t collect Elephants (or anything else) but over the years I’ve been given quite a few elephants as gifts. I’ve popped them together on a bookcase and I call them my “I don’t collect Elephants Collection” I do love them though. The Big one at the back holds a bottle of wine and the Black and White hugging elephants were a gift from my daughter and are salt and pepper shakers – seriously kitsch & cute!
So, this week’s Free Silhouette Cut File is a sweet little elephant celebrating Mum’s collection and my non-collection. There’s a few colours in this file. Start by cutting a white background layer, and overlay with the grey body. The pink ear is layered on top and the far rear leg and the eye are cut from a darker grey and are inlaid into the cut out grey layer. (I didn’t have the perfect shade of grey for the back leg – so I used purple)
He’d be really cute adorning a Child’s Birthday Card or Gift wrap or for any other occasion you can think of that calls for an Elephant 🙂
Here’s the Silhouette Cut File I Hope you can put him to good use……

Hi Pam. He is a cutie – & wouldn’t he look great on a baby card too?
Thanks Tine, Yes, great idea! I’ve got a baby shower to go to in August so he may get used for that!
Oh you must have known I needed this for a zoo party. So cute, thanks.
Oh, that’s great that you can use it. Enjoy the zoo party Shatril.
