Welcome Tucker - 15th April 2018

A friend just has her fifth baby, a boy named Tucker:  I love the name - it seems especially Australian for some reason.

So I started by setting out my supplies ...

A customer just gave me a bag of papers that she has no use for.  One of them was this blue gingham check, which I always find lovely for babies.

Another thing I particularly wanted to use was this blue baby self adhesive ribbon. So I found some coordinating blue cardstock and went from there.

Blue cardstock (Cricut)
Blue gingham patterned paper
Blue self adhesive ribbon
Bella baby die cuts
Adorn It! Tiny Whoopsy Teal Alphabet
Die-namics flat bottomed Clouds
MFT Puffy Clouds
MFT Stitched Circle Die
Close to My Heart Gold Shimmer Trim

I have made a couple of baby cards recently, and they never gelled.  Today, this one gelled, luckily.  I bought the pack of Bella die-cuts because they were on sale on Spotlight and when opening the pack, some of the die-cuts were really weird - I know they were meant to be vintage, but one of them looked like Chucky from the horror film!  That one was immediately filed in the bin.  I added the very fine strip of gold Glimmer Trim on the bottom and then I realised the golds didn't match - I went over the strip with some Champage Stickles, which matched the other glitter much more closely.

I am very happy with how this card turned out - now to give to the new mother!
