Our Sweet Grandson Axton is turning ONE! I would call him little, but not so much... He was born at 10.15lbs and hasn't stopped growing since! He is our gentle giant :) I decided it was time to bust out the kraft paper, my fiskars paper crimper, stashed bazzil buttons and just so happened to have letter buttons to spell his name. I even found the chipboard number 1 and the tab - covered them in BasicGrey and kraft.
It was fun to make a fancy fold easel card in an opposite fold, so the #1 would stand tall.
Mo Manning in her "Kai is One" image has totally captured Axton - this image looks JUST like him!
you can't really see it in the photo, but the inside of the card has a 5.5 x 5.5 2nd layer of Kraft that I also crimped.
Because the BasicGrey had spots and dots, I decided the image needed a little more depth/busy-ness, hence the dot shadow treatment. I actually colored the image twice, as when I cut the first image with the nestability and went to emboss, the die slipped and I nearly cried - LOL, but all was good with the second coloring job, so I got over it :) And besides, you know I love to color, so found the silver lining and enjoyed coloring a second time - bonus!
I followed the sketch over at Sweet Sunday Challenge Sketch #153
Now don't forget, you only have until Friday, March 2nd midnight (california time) to enter my Candy for the random draw for one Elisabeth Bell Digi Stamp of your choice! The Digi Bells blog hop will end on March 3rd, so there's still time to enter both here!
