A Little Boy's First Christmas


There's a new young man in my neighborhood that will be celebrating his first Christmas this year, so I made a card for him to note the big occasion. I used a cute digital image I had in my files but it had no name attached, so if anyone knows who created this, please leave a comment and I'll give credit to the artist. I colored the image with Copics, adding some gold paint pen accents to the ribbon on the gift, then added some liquid applique to the fur on his cute santa hat. The sentiment was computer generated and die-cut with MFT fishtail flag frames. I embossed the background with a retired SU! snowburst ef, and punched a bitty banner and added a die-cut letter "P" to represent his first name initial. I coated the initial with some glossy accents and called this one done.

I'm sharing this with the Snippets Playground weeks #311 and 312 because everything was created with snippets from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great Sunday!

Super cute way to celebrate this big 1 yr. The young man should love this bright image, and I love the shiny numeral, the sweet image, and that lovely embossing on the background. Also love the applique fur. I can never get that stuff to puff up so nicely...I tend to have blobs instead of anything that looks like texture! TFS (off to check out the quilt card on previous post!) Hugs

How cute and sweet Carol!! And so kind of you thinking on a personalized card for the baby of your neighbor that has his first Christmas! Love the image and the furry hat border, and such gorgeous embossing! It makes the image pop out and give a very festive look to the card!Lovely fishtail for the sentiment, too. I have one die as this, very unused. I have to take out it! :)
Hugs
