Welcome Little One

The March/April issue of the American Paper Crafts magazine is available now. One of the featured sections is for baby cards in non traditional colours (no pink or blue!). I was delighted to have this card accepted for publication (it's on p.58).

This little chap is from a set called Journaling which also includes a little snippet of script style writing, the word Journal and an ink bottle but I think he makes a cute baby card and the little leaf motif is perfect as a design on a "quilt".

The sentiment is computer generated using Edwardian Script and Courier New fonts and changed to match the colour of the Espresso ink I used for the stamping (R:67 G:52 B:49 is a pretty good match if you're trying this).

Stamps: Journaling set (Crafty Secrets)

Sugar Daddy (Bazzill Bling)
Cryogen white

Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Espresso)
Distress ink by Ranger (Antique Linen)

Sewing machine and thread
Computer generated sentiment
Silk ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!
