Baby Card - "In the Bath" and a Mini Album

Update from the 29/06/2013 - this card was in TOP3 "Use Something Metal" Challenge.

Hello everybody!

In today's post I have to finished works to share - a card and a mini album.

Let's start with the card "For A Baby". I used a digital stamp by Mo's Digital Pencil - "In the Bath". The papers are from 6X6 Bo Bunny pad "Prairie Chic Collection".

When you don't know whether you are making a card for a boy or a girl. which color should you chose? :) I chose both blue and pink.
The top tag may be completely taken out and a personal sentiment may be written on it, there's plenty of space:

For coloring I used the following Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E18, E15, E13, E11
Bath: N3, N2, N1, N0
Bubbles: B02, B000, B0000
Bear: R85, R83, R81, R0000
Towel + Soap: W5, W3, W1

The inside:

The scalloped tag may be pulled out of its pocket:

The back:

I'm entering the card into these challnges:
1. Use something metal @ The Squirrel and the Fox
2. Make it sparkle @ Paper Creator's Crafts
3. Tags @ Robyn's Fetish  
4. Anything Goes @ There she goes
5. MIM 145 @ Make it Monday
6. One for the kids @ The Cutie Pie
7. Anything Goes @ Pollycraft Challenge

And now to the mini album. Actually I made it inspired by the series of tutorials by Xannero1. Here's the first part of the series called "How to make a mini album from start to finish". Though the binding is made different in my mini and I like it more this way. It seems to me less vulnerable.

The decoration of the album is very simple, only folded pages with patterened papers, acetate pockets, tags of different sizes, and several punched elements:

For the spine I made this cute and simple decoration:

From the sides the album looks like this:

It's impossible to show all the pages in the mini, there are 6 of them and each one has lots of folds and flaps, so I chose a couple of them to share:

I must say it's a great pleasure making mini albums, though it's very time- and paper- consuming :)

That will be it for today! :)

I'm glad and thankful that you are visiting my blog! See you soon!
