Baby card plus freebie...

Hello everyone!!!

this one is going to be a big post. It has a lot of "computer work" behind. I made the project but I also recorded some parts so you will have a tutorial and a speed coloring video, plus the image for free!!!

A very special person for me asked me to make a baby card for a newborn. I couldn't find an image for it between all my digital stamps and I thought that this time, instead of buying one or keep looking for the right one, I would design one by myself and have it for everyone after that. That is how I came with this baby bear. You can find it when you subscribe to my newsletter.

I am not going to enter in the details of the card because it is very simple. The list of materials I used is below and the videos will show you the rest. As a summary, the card is made in white cardstock. I printed the image in white cardstock and masked it to do the background with distress inks. 

The only thing that it is not in the videos is the banner. I made it with some brown cord and different colors of washi tape. I glued with little glue dots the washi tape to the card, because it went all over the card :).

The video tutorial is in Spanish but it has English subtitles. 

The baby bear is colored with Spectrum Noir markers and these are the colors:

Fur: TN1, TN2, TN3, TN4, TN7, EB1, EB2.

Ears: CR1, R7, CR6.

Pacifier: TB4, TB2.

Blanket: TB4, TB3, TB2, TB1, IB1.

Diaper: IB1, BT4, BT2, BT6.

Slipper: CR6, GG3, GG2.

Rabbit: EB2, EB1, CR6.

Shadow: BG6, BG4, BG2. 

I hope you liked the card and the baby bear:). Don't forget to come back on Monday for a new giveaway!!
