Stampin' Up! All for Baby Christmas Card

Welcome to Monday Makeover Madness. I just love sharing my M & M's with you! Help yourself to some at the bottom of my post!!

Remember Lilly the new baby (most babies ARE new and never old!)? Well, this year will be her first Christmas so I wanted to jump right into the ring for sending her her first Christmas card. Her parents received this card when she was born.  So, I made it over using the All for Baby Stamp Set and "snippets" from Tidings of Christmas DSP. It's the same teddy bear stamp but I've added a bow to him and hung different apparel.


My card base is Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the clothesline in Crumb Cake on a panel of Basic White. On scrap white, I stamped the teddy bear in Early Espresso and cut it out with the matching Baby Clothes Dies. I used the dies for the onesie, bow, bib and clothespins. I stamped the sentiment from the set in Cherry Cobbler.

I used the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set to create the inside. I also had a "present" laying on my desk that I adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional. That package has been laying there for a couple of years so I don't even remember from where it came.


The tree is from Perfectly Plaid and the present is covering up the part that didn't stamp! I left a lot of white space so I could write a note to Miss Lilly.

Have you seen the film "The Bears Who Saved Christmas"? It's a cute one with so many well known actors and comedians doing the voices for the animated characters. I've included a link if you'd like to watch it. Click here! Why do I mention that? Because I'm entering my card at:

  4. Hi Karen - I'll be back to comment later but your card has a perfect image of Parsnip on the front! He's actually a dear and very cuddly white toy (whisper that word) bear who was a gift from a very sweet Welsh friend. Sam (as opposed to SaRn) was a blogger - and we met a few times and became great friends - but she moved on with her interests. However, Parsnip has always been the Playground 'snitch' and did get into a few escapades whilst I longed so much for a doggie - and then Dudley came along to do it all for reals! So, maybe it's time to retire Parsnip - he sits quietly out of reach of Dudley and just ponders the meaning of life and living with a crazy dog these days.Love, Di xx

    2. I do love your card Karen - so perfect! Love that you also dressed up the inside. And, Parsnip has had a reprieve - saved from retirement by Auntie Karen :)

      Hugs
