Baby's First Christmas

Hi Everyone,

I am back today with a project that is way out of my normal comfort zone, I am normally a card maker through and through ( and very traditional at that ) but Lawnscaping challenge blog asked for us to " Count me in " so I thought what can I do that's a little different?

I have used the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag Die and created a Baby's first Christmas bag in non traditional colours. First of all I die cut a tag and used distress ink in spun sugar and shaded lilac for the soft pastel background, then used versamark ink & white hologram embossing powder to add the tiny snowflakes from the LF Winter Penguin set, while I had my heat gun out I also stamp a piece of white cardstock with the ink so I could cut out the number, letters and the LF Stitched Snowflakes.
I coloured the bunny from LF Hello Baby with copic markers, then cut it out with the matching die set. The word baby is from the same set, and the s on the end came from the word twins I just masked off the rest of the word and it worked perfectly, don't you just love it when things just work out !!!
The word Christmas is from the LF Sweet Christmas stamp set. The little cloud is cut out of vellum and inked with the same shaded lilac as is the edges of the Goodie Bag. The bunny and word baby are on foam dots for dimension and I added a white organza bow to finish things off.

I would like to enter this project in the Lawnscaping Challenge #94 Count me in
