1st Birthday card using Stampin Up products using a sketch

Zoo Babies stamps from Stampin Up for a sketch from Stamping&BloggingHere is this weeks card using a sketch from Stamping&Blogging.  I was my great nephews 1st birthday whilst we were on holiday last week and I made this cute little card using the Zoo Babies stamp set from Stampin Up!

He is the most adorable poppet and the first grandchild in our family and I wonder what we ever did before he came along as when he is around we all just sit and watch him!  His name is Teddy by the way which is why I have stamped his name on the card ;0)

The giraffe from Zoo Babies is just adorable and I made a little mane using some crumb cake and some small snips made with the paper snips so add some texture.

I used the banner punch and the new All Abloom paper stack (this is a must have for everyone 133703/£6.25 for 48 sheets of double sided designs, see page 185 for more details). I did use the itty bitty punch pack for the flowers which are now retired but they weren’t when I made the card ;0)

Here is the inside, I just love the font of the numbers in the Memorable Moments stamp set…..
