A Little Wild | Baby Congratulations | Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of my recreation of the super cute Baby Congratulations card (using the elephant stamp from the A Little Wild stamp set), that was inspired by a card of Sarah Berry's.... as part of the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Sarah Berry that I participated in back in September last year.

As I mentioned in my part 1 blog post, this set is retiring at the end of the 2018-19 Annual Catalogue (3rd June) 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.

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) and so I split them over 2 blog posts. This is part 2 with the more unisex & boyish colours. To see part 1, 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 ramsacked 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.
