Here's a card I wanted to make for my niece -- she and her husband recently moved back to our city and it was the first chance we got to meet their 7 month old daughter! So I didn't want to do the typical "new baby" card. Instead I thought this Tilda With Lace Jeans stamp was just perfect; it's like she is saying "Why Hello There!" to a little one.
I started out by using one of my favorite double-sided papers, GCD Studios # 210 "Tinted Rose Stripe" and used the front striped side for the center panel. But the other side was quite plain and I wanted to have some soft swirls on the side panels to offset the hard stripes, so I added the pattern myself using Memento's Angel Pink ink and a foam stamp I got years ago.
I distressed and inked all the paper edges with ColorBox Magenta ink, added some pink polka dot ribbon from Michael's (using my Bow Easy, of course!) and a teenie button from my stash was sewed onto the sentiment tag.
I used my wonderful Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot software to create the center hexagons and made the tag using my Cricut with Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. Foam dimensionals were used to pop the hexagon up over the background papers.
Copics used to colour Tilda were:
E0000, E01, E02, E21, E25, E27, E29
R20, R21, R22 and R24
I just LOVE making these girly cards - and it is so cool to have them really appreciated by the recipient (they loved it!)
