Sweet Baby Boy

Hi ladies, I have another card and tag combo for you here and this covers three challenges.

Firstly I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers Week 53, Challenge 33 on Secret Crafter has a theme of new beginnings and finally Penny Black Week 50 is to use buttons.

For my card I have used blue gingham paper which is a download and the penny black stamp is coloured with distress inks.

I have used my swiss dots folder for the embossing, this is my favourite folder and I use it for so many things, I don't know what I would do with out it!!!

The buttons are from papermania and I have threaded some white satin ribbon through the centre of the largest two for a bit of extra detail.

I have followed the sketch through to the inside of the card and I made the sentiment on my computer using the font lucinda handwriting.

My scalloped circle nesties have made an appearance once again to cut both the image on the front and the sentiment on the inside.

I have only made a matching tag for the card, no envelope, as this is only a stamped image, unfortunately I don't actually own the stamp.

For the tag base I have used the gingham download once again, printed onto cardstock. I have used my swiss dota folder for the embossing and coloured the image to match the card.

Finally, below, I have included a close up image of the front of the card.

Card/Paper: White, blue card, Paper is a download.
Stamp: Penny Black
Colouring: Distrss inks - tattered rose, antique linen, walnut stain, vintage photo, peeled paint, spiced marmalade, dusty concord and broken china.
Embellishments: PM buttons, ribbon, pearls
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder, water brush.

Thanks for looking. x
