A Little Wild | Baby Congratulations | Part 1

You may remember back in September last year I participated in a Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Sarah Berry as our special guest and I created a super cute Baby Congratulations card using the elephant stamp from the A Little Wild stamp set.

Sadly this set is retiring at the end of the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue (3rd June) and so I decided to re-create my card and make a few more using different colours along with some other products that are retiring soon too.

Another favourite stamp set and co-ordinating framelits that will be retiring on 3rd June is the Petal Palette stamp set and Petals & More framelits, which I used on my original card. This stamp set and framelit bundle was my go to for sentiments and sentiment labels (They will be missed... but I think I'll keep mine around for a while :) ). So naturally I used them again for my new versions.

I decided to include my collection of cards in the latest Case The Catty #227 Favourite Retiring Bundle Challenge.

As you can see from the above photo, I ended up making 8 new cards (including a remake of my original which was given to some friends to help welcome their new arrival) so I am going to split them over 2 blog posts. This is part 1 with the more girly colours. To see part 2, click here.

For more details on how I created these, check out my original post by clicking here.

The background DSP for all my new versions come from either the Brights 6x6 DSP stack or the Subtles 6x6 DSP stack. This DSP is also sadly retiring.

I ransacked my rather large ribbon collection to find matching ribbons, where I didn't have a current ribbon in the right colour. Details of the ribbons..... and other products and colours..... I used are listed below each card.
