I found a sparkly pink button in my stash and added that to the flower center for a bit more sparkle.
The down side, is that I have turned into a "knitted hat mad woman". It's just CRAZINESS! I have several hats almost finished for our Christmas craft sale ... just have to figure out how to make some pom poms. Haven't done those in years either, ha ha. I have also finished 2 hats for our little Granddaughter - who is now 3 months old. !!
Now the gift needed to be wrapped ... and my last Stampin' Up Clearance Rack order had arrived with these cute little brown/tan glossy card stock gift bags. It was the perfect size for this hat and the pink tissue paper. But it needed to be dressed up a bit ...
I added a sweet paper pink rose (Michaels) to the flower center.
Of course I wanted to make a special card ... and chose the rattle from the "Sugar and Spice" Cricut cartridge.
I cut the base layer twice, as I knew I wanted to use lots of foam tape on this card. I ran the top base through my Big Shot with a Sizzix plaid embossing folder for a bit of texture. The little duck seemed to need something - so I painted it with Twinkling H20's for some yellow shimmer. When it was dry, I added a tiny pink gem with my iRock tool.I wanted a pink card base, so used the "Elegant Edges" cartridge for the scalloped heart panel.A pink satin bow ties it all together. :-)
Here is a peek at the inside: I actually ended up outlining the little bird (a leftover piece from the rattle) with a Sakura gel pen and added a sparkle eye after I took this photo. The stamp is one I have had for years, by PrintWorks. Oh, and the little 'Welcome' stamp on the front is by Hero Arts.
Whew! That's it for today - thanks for stopping by.
