Kimono Congratulations Cutie

Hello again,

This card has taken me AGES today, but it is FINALLY finished! And after agonising over it and hating it for a while... I've actually grown to quite like it!

I absolutely LOVE the digi-stamp from Stretch N' Bubbles' "Zen" collection, especially with my love of Japan!

Here it is:

I used a sketch from a magazine I bought, and I was determined to use this image - that was the difficult part, because I'd printed it a little larger than what would be ideal for a card of this size.
But still, I think with the faux-stitching and use of Kraft cardstock in a couple of places, it's helped tie all the colours together.

I made it for my boss who has just had a baby - hope she likes it!


- 'A Blessing' digi-stamp from 'Stretch n' Bubbles'
- White linen cardstock from the Papermill
- Kraft cardstock (Bazzil)
- Some red ribbon I've had lying around for absolutely ages
- Some turquoise cardstock that I got in a pack from Costco - sorry not sure what it's called
- Copices
- Nestabilities dies
- A random button I got on eBay
- Sentiment from Hero Arts
- And the flowers are some that I cut from some K&Co paper, and then curled up the petals!

I would like to enter this into:

Sentimental Sundays - Anything goes


  1. THis is really sweet, tasha! I can see you put alot of time and attention to detail in this. I love your faux stitching, very tidy.

  2. I love the faux stitching too - especially like the way the button is mounted on a punched circle with faux stitching. I don't think the image is too big at all - it's perfect!

  3. Very sweet! I love the layout and faux stitching detail.

    Thank you for joining us for the Sentimental Sundays “Anything Goes” challenge. Good luck!


  4. That is so cute! The image is perfect. Great coloring! Your boss will love this! I do and I did not just have A baby!
