One of our neighbours had a baby girl and this is the card that I made for the occasion:
I used my Prismacolor + Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Odourless Mineral Spirits and paper stumps to colour the cute little teddy bear nappy pin image which took oh, all of 5 minutes! I used my pearlescent chalks to add blue, pink and lemon around the image which added a lovely, sparkly yet subtle sheen - alas, very difficult to pick up with the camera but I hope you can see a little bit of soft colouring - it looks so pretty IRL.
The sentiment is by Stampin' Up from their Nursery Necessities set. I added a line of Basic Grey pink rhinestones underneath and used my Arrows Border punch to punch the tiny little pink hearts around the image (the leftover punchies from using the punch look like tiny hearts). I added some pink Kindyglitz to the bear's cheeks, the pin itself and the tiny pink hearts. Here is a close-up of that cute little bear:
The gorgeous embossing folder I used on the white cardstock is by K Kingdom called 'Flowers and Dots' which originally came from Fat Cat's Card Corner in Australia but is no longer on their website. I did a bit of a search on the web, but couldn't find it anywhere. Maybe it has been discontinued?
And here is a pic of the card inside which is the same layout as the card-front except that I reversed the colours:
I used the same embossing folder for the pink cardstock and the sentiment is from the same Stampin' Up Nursery Necessities set - there are lots of fantastic sentiments in this set. I added a Basic Grey pink rhinestone at each end.
Lastly, I added the white dotted pink organza scalloped ribbon (LOVE this ribbon!!), sewed on a pink button and added some Fray Stop to the ribbon ends, then glued on the pink organza flowers which I have had in my stash forever! They came with the white pearl already sewed on in the centre.
And here is a pic of the gift that will be accompanying my card. More teddy bears of course......sorry it's such a lousy photo. I took it really early in the morning and the light wasn't very good at the time. Just LOVE that cute teddy bear bib and the teddy rattle. The gift bag was bought as I have no idea how to make such a large bag!
I am entering my card in the following challenges:
