3D box card

We couldn't celebrate Father's day until today due to scheduling issues so my father's Day card is a bit late.  I've been seeing these 3D box cards all over  and was trying to find a good theme for my dad.  My father has an ongoing war with the neighborhood squirrels (as most dads do) and I got him a fun mug:
He also has a squirrel proof feeder called a Yankee flipper (I think).  The feeder functions by sensing the weight of the squirrel and then spinning the bottom rung until the squirrel flies off.   For this card, I was going for the squirrel theme.  I used a free Paper Smooches stamp and cut the word 'hi' he was dangling from off and made it look like he was hanging from the feeder.  I used a couple of the lawn fawn tree stamps for the trees in the back.  I had purchased a box of transparencies from a thrift store a few years ago and used those to hold up the elements and hand wrote the sentiment.

Congratulations, you're pregnant!

I never know what to say with certain sentiments and this is one of them. "Congratulations you're pregnant" is the thought, but not what I literally wish to say, lol.  I went with just a "Congratulations" and let the card show the sentiment.  As usual, I have almost no punches so I found an elephant shape and copied it to my Silhouette.  I didn't have any "baby" papers so I used some of the patterns on the Silhouette to fill and used the print and cut feature.  The ears, I just eyeballed, lol.  I had a balloon cut file already from on of the free shapes of the week.  In retrospect, I should have used the swiss dots to emboss, but this was the hubby's choice since it was from the two of us, I deferred to his wishes :D.
