I hope you all had a good week :) I just got back from Scotland two days ago and I am still pretty jet lagged! I loved being home and the weather was just perfect. I got out and about quite a bit but more about that later.
I was crafting last night but I did not get around to finishing anything off. So I wanted to share a card that I was asked to make a few weeks ago that I have not got around to posting yet. This card was for a wee boy who just had his first birthday. How cute is this wee elephant?? I love it so much this is Unity stamp called Sweet Elle. The balloons were made with another stamp from Fiskars called Birthday Bash.
I stamped the elephant and water coloured it then cut it out. Next I stamped the balloons on to some coloured card and fussy cut them too. I then attached the balloons to the elephant with some coloured twine. I used foam squares to adhere it to my card to give it some dimension. Then I made a banner with the same card stock and adhered it to the top of my card. I then stamped the sentiment then sprinkled some sequin stars around. I finished the card off by mounting it on to the same two card colours then a white card base.
I hope you like my card I really like the muted colours I used. Usually all of my baby cards are done in pastels so this make a nice wee change.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today
PS I did not forget my wee give away! I brought back some craft goodies from Scotland. I will do a blog post on it next week some time and share some of my photos from home. I need to unpack everything first :) So stop back then to be in with a chance of winning.
