Blue Baby Edwin with Bunting

Here is a card a made for a little boy celebrating his first birthday.

I started by stamping the Baby Edwin stamp by Magnolia using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured it using Copic markers.
Hair: E41, E43, E44
Skin: E000, E00, E13
Dummy/Bootees: BG11, N3
Romper Suit: B41, B93
Star: BG11
Wings:BG10, N1
Edwin's cheeks were then highlighted using a Papermania Snow White gen pen, and the wings and star were highlighted with Ranger Baby Blue Stickles. The image was then fussy cut.
A panel for Edwin was then die cut using the Classic Oval and Classic Scalloped Oval Nestabilities dies, using white and blue cardstocks.
A strip of white card was then embossed using the Basket Weave border embossing folder by Cuttlebug and then coloured using Tim Holtz Stormy Sky distress ink. A length of crochet lace was added to the lower edge of this and then matted onto a strip of blue card punched using the Martha Stewart Doilly Lace border punch. This was added across a panel of bird patterned paper from the First Edition Up Up and Away paper pad, matted onto the blue cardstock.
The Edwin image panel was then matted over the border strip.
A bunting die cut using the La La Land Heart Banner die was added across the top right corner of the card.
As this was a first birthday card, I wanted to reflect that so I die cut a '1' using the Sizzix Sizzlits Bounce Alphabet die set, and matted this onto a couple of Classic Oval dies and a Classic Scalloped Oval die. The '1' was then highlighted with the Baby Blue Stickles.
This inside of the card was also decorated.
The sentiment panel was created by stamping a banner from the Clearly Besotted Basic Banners stamp set using the Stormy Sky distress ink and diecutting it with its co-ordinating die. The sentiment, from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler stamp set, was stamped in the centre of the banner, also using the Stormy Sky ink.
