Good evening, and thank you to everyone who left me such kind comments on my last post after my being away for so long. This coming weekend is the first birthday for my fourth Great Granddaughter, Ella and this is the card I have made for her.
The image is a LOTV stamp,
stamped with black Memento
ink and coloured with Promarkers. I die cut it with a Lil Inker stitched die and then cut a mat from some pale pink paper. I cut a piece of the patchwork design paper very slightly smaller than the front of the 15cm square base card. I used a Victorian Velvet Distress Marker to ink the edge of this and all the other cut pieces. I stuck the pale pink mat to the background paper at an offset angle and stitched 3 pale blue buttons to a length of pink ribbon before wrapping it round the paper, slightly overlapping the mat and fixing it at the back. I then fixed all this to the card, and added the image. The greeting is another LOTV stamp which I cut out by hand as none of my round dies were the right size. I used an X Cut die to cut the hexagon mat and having stuck them together I added it to the card. Both the pink and patterned paper are from a pad called Belle and Boo which contains some really pretty designs for baby and young children's cards.
The pink paper and white card used were all snippets so I am taking this to show in Pixies Snippets Playground.
