Card Commission: 1st Birthday Thankyou Cards!

I love sharing my craftiness with others and recently a college pal of mine, Jen asked if i could design a card to thank her friends and family who celebrated her daughter Emily's first birthday with them! I was given free reign and told that Emily loved pink and purple so i instantly plumped for a 'Melon Mambo' and 'Wisteria Wonder' colour combo.

With a lot of patience Jen stamped her daughters foot with some purple paint. I scanned it into my computer and then printed it onto 'Whisper White' card stock. (Stampin' Up! card stock is fab to print on!!) I cut these out and then stamped a thank you sentiment (from a retired set) in the top left hand corner using 'Melon Mambo' ink. I mounted this onto some 'Wisteria Wonder' and then placed this onto a 'Melon Mambo' card base.

We originally planned to pop 'Peppa Pig' in the corner as it's Emily's favourite character, however another friend Ruth took this beautiful picture of Emily on her birthday wearing her beautiful party dress and it just had to feature on the card, so i printed it out and mounted it again onto some 'Wisteria Wonder' card stock and raised it using some 'Dimensionals'.

I hope Jen and Emily are happy with the final design and cards! It's always such a privilege to design and make cards like this. They're such a lovely keepsake of children's milestones and so much more personal that some shop-brought thank you cards. Customised cards start at just £1 a card, so why not drop me an email to discuss your own design needs:

Just before i go i want to share with you the original 'Peppa Pig' design:

The 'Peppa Pig' was found online and printed onto some 'Whisper White' and then coloured in with 'Pretty in Pink', 'Regal Rose' and 'Tangerine Tango' 'Stampin' Write Markers'.
