Baby's 1st Christmas (x 2)


Hi everyone.  My SIL asked if I could make two "Baby's 1st Christmas" cards for her nieces living in Australia.  Both have just given birth to girls and my SIL wanted to send a special card to both of them, celebrating the first Christmas with their daughters.

I used a digi image from Bugaboo for both cards ... just love their fun images!  I paper pieced all the parts, layering some for added depth.  I'm entering these cards into December's challenge at Catch the Bug Challenge Blog at Bugaboo - Anything Goes.  Hope you like.



Stamps:  Christmas Teddy 2 Ornaments (Bugaboo); sentiment is computer generated
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs);  Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Be of Good Cheer DP (SU!)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Classic Tags die (Memory Box), Peapod Twine (The Twinery), sponges, glue, glue dots, and dimensionals



Here's a close-up of the Teddy Bear:

Here's the second card.  It's the same adorable teddy bear from Bugaboo ... but this time he's peeking out from inside of a Christmas present.  I used the same colors of ink and papers as the first card.  The only change is the shape of the tag (memory box die). 

Here's a close-up of the teddy bear:

Oh Loll - two such beautiful cards. I must hunt for this image as it would be ideal for my great nephew's first Christmas. Thanks for the inspiration.
