Gift for Big Sister


I have made this picture for a little girl who has just become a big sister. I have been told she loves animals. 

I used Lisa Horton dies to cut the animals. I embossed the white elements of the sheep for a more authentic finish.  I used dies to cut the fence and grass and a punch to cut the flowers. I had dies which were free with a magazine in my stash to enable me to cut clouds. I printed a sentiment and cut it with a Presscut oval die and mounted it onto a larger oval. I attached green and blue card to the back of a frame. I cut the green to resemble mountains. I assembled the die cut elements onto the background. 

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

  1. You've created a beautiful animal-themed project, and I love how you lined the guys up in a 3 D landscape scenery. Their curious looks are just adorable! Also, it's such a great idea to think of the girl who became a big sister - she's certainly going to go through a few changes, and having to share the family's attention with a newborn is certainly not an easy task. I hope the gift will help her to feel included in the new situation, and the girls grow up developing a strong sisterly bond. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

    Hugs, Veronika
