Baby Girl Card

The card above I made as a sample card using my new baby digital 'Baby Gift Box'ID: NV-DS0028 and the sentiment is from my new word art sheet 'Baby Set 1' ID:NV_WA0019 . I couldn't go past the wonderful sketch supplied over at the Midnight Madness crew. I think that my stitching was a lot better on this card and I did some test runs trying to get the tension right to sew on paper.

I coloured my digital first, spending the most amount of time on the hatbox itself and used 6 different copic colours to achieve that gradual shading. I used a white pen to add the little white dots onto the hatbox to create a pattern. The items inside the hatbox are very small, so I only used 2 colours on most of them. After it was dry it was then cut out, the edges shaded and pop dotted onto the card to add dimension. I brushed all the edges of the card with pink petunia chalk to soften the hard edges. The rest of the card was just a matter of putting it together.

The inside is very simple. I used the same paper as the front and stitched around it. The verse is from my word art sheet and the edges where also brushed with chalk.

Card Info:

  • Normal pinkish card stock to make the base
  • Background paper by Paper Chic Item#1625, so pretty with candy stripes one side and tiny white four petaled flowers on the other side.
  • Copics: E01, E95, R20, R81, R83, R85 (hat box colours)
  • Pink ribbon with 2 silver threads by Celebrate
  • Pink Bling by Paper Xtra
  • Little teddy bear charm from Ribtex
  • Flowers are a no name brand, I do remember picking up the white ones in the bridle section and I coloured the center of them with a red copic marker.
  • VersaMagic is the chalk ink
