A friend at church asked me if I could make some Christmas cards for 3 baby girls in her life. So I started going through all my Christmas stamps to see what inspired me as cute for baby girls!
My card for 3 year old Chloe was inspired by the Cas-ology Cue Card: Ribbon challenge.
I just love this little gingerbread girl from Oven Fresh Gingerbread Joy - one of the first Waltzingmouse stamp sets. I stamped her in Picked Raspberry Distress ink, colored her with a Copic and added a little gingham ribbon bow to the top of her outfit.. The sentiment is from the same set. I stamped Chloe using the Victorian Alphabet and drew the top and bottom framing lines using a Micron Pen.
Here's what I stamped on the inside of Chloe's card. I just love this 'You're Yummy' sentiment as I find most babies to be quite yummy!
My next cards - for Emma and Ava celebrating their FIRST Christmas - are the same, as they are going to different families. My design was inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge which is a sketch.
I used three Waltzingmouse Sets on this card - Twas the Night Before Christmas, Around Christmastime, and Victorian Alphabet. I sponged the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I popped the Santa circle up on foam dots. The names are stamped on vellum attached with sparkle brads.
Here's what I stamped on the inside of these cards. Stamps from Twas the Night Before Christmas.
and here are the two together
