Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Well, no work for me today, I had the day off so I spent my day making a card. Sad, but it did take me most of the day. I also did laundry (one of my least favorite chores).

I decided to look for some challenges to enter my card in and I found 14 … wow, been a long time since I entered that many.

So, here is my card.

IMG_1599 (Small)

I chose to use Baby Tilda for my image. This Tilda stamp is one of my first Magnolia’s and I love her. I don’t get to use her too often but she always makes me smile!

My papers are from Debbie Mumm, it’s an older paper pack that I picked up at Joann’s. I used my Grand Calibur to cut out my Spellbinders Grand Standard Circles and Spellbinders Nestabilities Lacey Circles. This machine sure makes for easy cutting being able to cut so many at one time and the crank is so easy! My ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon’s monthly kit. I just love receiving my package every month, I love ribbon. I unbundle it and hang it using my Ribbon Ring.

Here is a close up of baby Tilda.

I colored her using the following Copics:

  • Skin – E11, E02, E00, E000, E0000, R20
  • Outfit – R85, R83, R81, RV00, YG17, YG25, YG11
  • Hair – YR24, YR23, YR21

I added Ranger Stickles to her wings and around the white Lacey Circle die. Not sure if you can see the sparkle but this stuff really sparkles.

I added some lilies and used McGill’s Pine Punch. I also added Stickles to the pine punches but it doesn’t really show up.

IMG_1602 (Small)

I tried a new fold on this card. I was going for something dramatic but it didn’t turn out that way so I had to settle for an overlap. It’s kind of hard to see in this picture but if you look at the first one you can see that it ties shut with the ribbon.

Here is the inside. It’s hard to see in the pic but it says Happy Birthday Baby Girl.

OK, so now for the challenges this qualifies for:

Hi Stephanie, this is absolutely adorable! Love all the layers with the Nesties, your coloring is so beautiful and little Tingla is too cute. Wonderful to put a bow on each side of the image and the fold is so unique. It may have taken all day, but the effort really shows. BTW, I hate laundry too, but it's not so bad if you just ignore it in the washer and dryer! That way I tell my hubby that it's done while I work on a never believes me!

Thank you so much for sharing the card and also for the links. I live in Hawaii and the link to the reasonable ribbon was awesome. I love the first birthday card. First birthdays are huge here in Hawaii. If I have that Magnolia stamp, I might scraplist/cardlift your idea for my niece's little girls first birthday coming up. We shall see. I'm kinda dopey on meds right now, so I don't even know if I'm functioning enough to make a card, but i'm going to try. So thanks for sharing and a wonderful idea. Aloha from Hawaii
