Tiny Treasures

Aug 16: Pat is going to a baby shower for 2 folks at work tomorrow. Pat and Mom were out shopping on Sunday (I had to stay home) for some really cute baby clothes, they did pick up some cards, but to tell the truth they didn’t think they were worth the $8.00 (that would buy a lot of cookies) and Pat likes Mom’s handmade cards, she thinks it adds a personal touch to any gift.

I’m just to tired to go to Mom’s studio today, so I think I will just stay downstairs and guard the house! Mom was upstairs awhile this morning and I was sure glad when she finally came downstairs and kept me company (I love sitting on her lap).

Mom elected to keep it simple. She made little 3x3 gift cards to go along with Pat’s shower gifts.


Mom used a cute little Giraffe stamp from Hero Arts for both cards.Can you tell one is for a boy and the other is for a girl!

Because they are colored with Copics, Mom used Momento Black Tuxedo ink stamped on Neenah paper. Once Mom finished coloring the Giraffe she used a Scrapy Land nesting die called Wavy Squares to cut out the image. After embossing the cut out, Mom used Foam tape to pop it up on the card.

Oh, I almost forgot, the ‘congratulations’ sentiment is a rub-on from Pebbles. The Copics Mom used were: Y02, Y00, Y28 and RV34 (and a green for the grass – she forgot to tell me the number)

Hope you liked Mom’s little gift card.

Take care.
