Splish Splash

Hi Everyone,

I have a shaker card to share with you today.  I was asked to make a 1st birthday card and know how children love these style of cards, and so do I.

I coloured the baby using E00, E01, E11, E000 but then realised afterwards that Baby skin is usually lighter so I should have adjusted my tones :(

I filled the shaker with clear mico beads, very effective.

The Grandson has been cut out using my Quickutz and then I added glossy accents to give it added dimension.


Bath: C5, C3, C1, C00
Bubbles: BG10, BG000
Towel, BG75, BG10, BG000
Skin: E00, E01, E11, E000, R20
Duck: Y15, Y11, Y000

Super clean and crisp look to your card, this morning. Love your lettering. Baby looks so sweet in his tub with those shaker "bubbles". Our grandson goes home today! We'll miss him (but my house will be tidy again!) Hugs, Lesley
