Baby Boy Gift Tag - Gigi the Giraffe


BethieJ's Challenge Week #4:
Papertrey Ink - Just the Ticket

     I made this tag for a baby shower last week,  for my niece's sweet baby boy, Nathan.  I had previously made cards for Nathan and his parents, so I decided that a gift tag would be just right for the occasion.

This card also meets the requirements of a challenge on the Papertrey Ink forum, hosted by BethieJ.

I used three PTI dies for the tag - the Library Tag Card die forms the base and the Tag Sale #1 die was used for the stamped image. The border die Just the Ticket was used across the bottom of the tag.

The image is Gigi the Giraffe from Clear Dollar Stamps and has been coloured with copic markers in yellow and blue. (I used this image to make a little girl's birthday card in pink and yellow here - so sweet and easy to colour). 

    The sentiment is from the stamp set Just the Ticket. I added the tiny blue buttons to each side of the sentiment panel and tied them with yellow embroidery floss.

Card Details:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps: Gigi the Giraffe;  PTI Just the Ticket
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black; CTMH Moonstrck Blue
Papers: Recollections Blue card stock, gingham and dotted blue patterned paper
Other Supplies: PTI dies: Just the Ticket, Library Card, Tag Sale 1;  gingham ribbon; blue marker; small blue buttons; yellow embroidery floss.

Thanks for stopping by!!
