I made this card for Alyx's family as they had a new member arrive earlier this month - a baby brother for the three girls. Kat asked me to make something special and here it is:
Stamps: Uniko - Sweet Baby; Waltzingmouse - Little Darling Sentiments
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - Tuxedo Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Real Red, Bashful Blue; SU DP - Bashful Blue; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Cuttlebug EF - Swiss Dots; Clear Embossing Powder
I used a few challenges in this card:
- Inkspirational - INK#98 where the theme is BaH Humbug! Anything but Christmas
- Freshly Made Sketches - FMS#217
- Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - CIC#340 - I picked the colours
I have almost used up my supply of Bashful Blue card and design paper, but it is just the perfect colour to use for a baby boy card. I stamped the little onsie on design paper, heat embossed with clear powder and carefully cut out it out. I stamped the tiny bear on some white card, heat embossed with clear powder and coloured it with Copic markers. I like the bold red bear. I cut a panel of white card which I embossed with tiny dots and layered it on to some red card. I finished the front with a simple, but heartfelt sentiment, on a blue strip of card. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pale blue card and on the white panel added a greeting. I also added a larger version of the red teddy.
It was lovely to take this card and a few welcome gifts over to the family before we left the States for Christmas. It's going to be especially fun for them with the new baby. That's all for now - take care.
