Hi everyone! Today I'm really quite excited to share with you a card (with a little bit of a difference) made using the adorable Bambino by Sugar Nellie - a lot of you have most probably seen this gorgeous stamp floating around but, for those who haven't, it can be found here.
I was asked to make an 8" x 8" birth card for a friend's newborn Grandson and here it is .......
How precious is this little image? I fell in love as soon as I saw it and knew I had to have it for this card!
The beautiful background papers are from Lili of the Valley called Bear Necessities.
I've made this particular card as a 'pocket card' - the label top centre of the card holds the greeting ..... as there is NO inside to this card!
I coloured the lovely Bambino up with Copics using: Skin - E00, E11, E21, R11 Hat - B97, B95, B93.
The floral arrangement is a mixture of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Magnolia Vintage Berries from Live and Love Crafts, die- cut leaves and heart pins.
Little one was born last Thursday and so I thought it'd be quite sweet to pop on the actual day he was born using the well known poem, Monday's Child :)
Here's a little Tracey Fact for you ....... I was born on a Tuesday, which, as we all know, means 'Full of Grace'. Well, hmmmm, some may argue that fact but, I like to think (even if I'm just kidding myself) that I can be quite graceful at times ....... on occasions the grace has slipped, but, on the whole ......
How about you all? Do you match up to your birth day or are you complete opposite? It's the poor people born on a Wednesday I feel for ..... All of the other days have good, positive meanings and then you have ...... WOE! Where did that one pop up from? ;o)
Above left is the greeting label, which fits into the top front of the card and the pic above right is my own nifty creation to make the card stand up ...... was a little worried it was gonna fall straight on its back but, thankfully, it was well behaved :)
Please excuse these two pics ...... they're really not the best picture quality but, hopefully, you can understand what I'm waffling on about!
Here's a little side view to give you more of an idea of how it stands.
