Hello friends~ Our sweet little granddaughter in California is celebrating her first birthday today and we are here in sunny California, celebrating with her! I thought I'd share the card I made for her and a few photo's of her at the end.
If this card looks familiar, it's because I used the same technique for Mr. C's birthday card back in September.
I love getting inspiration for cards from their children's books. The sun pops up from behind the panel, just like in the pop-up book.
The cutie giraffe from Marianne Designs fits my little Sweet "P" to a "T"!
The pop-up part of the card has sunshine and clouds that are super old dies, but timeless in style. I stamped a smiley face onto the sunshine using a stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps, adding some copic and white gel pen details. There's a large vellum cloud and some smaller white puffy clouds.
I just love the cheerful raspberry colors and how they contrast with the giraffe. To me, it's very story-book-ish.
Here's a picture of my Sweet "P" when she was first born.
And here she is today in all her sweetness!
Here she is with my son:
and with her mom, my beautiful daughter in-love:
I just love kissing those kissable cheeks!! I know time is going to whiz by way too quickly and soon we'll be home again. But, joy of all joys! They'll be home to spend Christmas with us in just 9 days, so I might be MIA in blogland until the new year.
Thanks for stopping by!
