Todays card has been created for this weeks Cute Card Thursday Challenge, and this one is for a card for any first occasion, Ive chosen a baby's first Christmas card mainly because I have one to create for my hubbys second granddaughter.
Ive used again one of Janets new Christmas stamps from Pink Gems, they are absolutely gorgeous, and this one is so right for a baby's first Christmas. Ive stamped it out onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens. I then glittered her hat and around the top of the sock, then Ive cut her out with my scissors completely. Ive then put a piece of pink pearlescent card through my cuttlebug machine with a holly leaf embossing folder, then cut it out with one of the new Xmas Nestabilitie dies, this one is the Xmas Tree. Ive then stuck my stamped image onto this tree with some foam tape.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card (yes a different size for a change) and onto this I have layered up some pink card, and one of two Christmas designs from Donna's Bearly Mine designs, these come from the new Extreme Designs Vol.III. This first paper is a lovely all over greetings design, for the second layer Ive used another piece of the same pink card with a second pattern and this one has a lovely design of flying snowmen, Ive also wrapped a pink organza ribbon around this mount and tied a bow, this was then stuck on top of the first layer to the to the top left hand corner.
Ive then stuck my mounted image to the centre of the card, after which I have punched out some snowflakes with my Martha Stewart punches, layered them up and then Ive used some stickles glue along the branches of them and around the centres where I have stuck some pink pearl gems.
