I wanted to do something a little bit different for our 1st Birthday so I made a 1st Birthday card and matching Gift Bag. The image is from TeddyBo and the papers are Echo Park - Little Boy, they have been hiding in my ever growing paper stash for ages.
I coloured the image with ProMarkers and paper pieced the number one and added some Crystal Lacquer to it:
The border was cut using Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Ric Rac, I cut the sentiment from a Crafty Pad Ticket Sentiment and backed it on the same red Core'dinations card stock that I used throughout. The buttons and thread are from my stash:
As usual, I have decorated the inside of my card to complement the front:
I used the same image, papers and layout for the gift bag:
and also decorated the back to complement the front:
I apologise for the number of photographs but I wanted to show everything, it took me so long to make it all I was nearly late for the challenge.
