Baby Rei Lynn’s 1st Birthday Card – HSSSC169

September 29, 2013

Good evening everyone 🙂  It has definitely been a busy weekend!  Have I mentioned that I’m back in school?  Well, I am and it’s only part-time, but the assignment involved will take some time to complete!  Wish me luck! 🙂

Ok enough about me, back to some craftiness.  So today was my friend Joyce’s daughter’s 1st birthday!  She’s so cute! It’s been a while since I’ve made a child’s birthday card, so I needed some inspiration, and what better way to get inspired than from a card challenge 🙂  So I went to Hand Stamped Sentiments to see what’s happening there.  They had a card sketch challenge this week..

I kept things a little more simple, since time was a bit of an issue this weekend, but I think the card turned out pretty cute!  Especially since I’ve been sewing more than paper crafting lately…..(side note – I’ve been working on a big project the past couple of weeks! I’m hoping to get it done this week!)


I love blues…’s so bright a cheery! The whale stamp is actually from a retired stamp set from Stampin’ Up called Fox and Friends.  The banner is from Itty Bitty Banners, with matching die cut framelits for the Big Shot 🙂  It’s hard to see in my picture, but I also have a dazzling diamonds sparkle border around the white framelit so that it sparkles 🙂


This is the inside and the envelope!  The whale and small embellishments are also from another die cut by Stampin’ Up – Clearlits Happy Whale cute huh?

Happy Crafting Everyone!

    How sweet! I love the little whale for a baby b’day, and I love the little sparkle around the edges to make it extra special. Thanks for playing at HSS! Erika
