One year old
I finished this card last night. I'm using one of Birds cut files again, just couldn't resist this one. I'm well in advance in time scale for this card in terms of need but the image suggested to me that it could be a birthday card just as well as a birth card. I cut teddy with my Cameo in this cute spotted paper that I've had in my stash for ages. I've popped the various layers with foam pads to give good depth as I can hand this one out. Whoopee no posting, it so limits the design if you don't want high postage. Ted is holding a silver number 1 which I cut on my Cameo. Its such a joy this machine, you can just about cut anything you can type so now I have a small stash of numbers ready for when I need them. The circle die cut is also one of Birds. To contrast with the pink spotted paper I've used pink stripes for my background paper and used pink spotted ribbon from my stash. To finish I've used the little girls name instead of a sentiment to personalise the card which I know will please her mum. I typed this into Silhouette studio to make a cut file, mounted it onto white card and cut out by hand to fit the space on the corner.
