Good evening every one I have some happy news today, my Granddaughter's fourth baby girl was born yesterday lunchtime. We are all so happy that she arrived safe and well as it has been a difficult pregnancy. Here is the card that I made for the occasion. The stamped images
are Lily Of The Valley
Stamped with Archival
Watering Can ink, and coloured with Pro Markers and a gold gel pen for the stars. I used the largest die in the Spellbinders Elegant Ovals set to cut the image, and because I have made so many pink baby and toddler cards in the last few years,
(we now have six great granddaughters!!),that I wanted to add a little bit of blue as well this time, so I coloured the ribbon in the picture blue, and inked the edge of the die cut using Broken China Distress ink and a piece of blending foam, and then chose one of the patterned papers with a little blue in it as well. Both papers are odd pieces from my stash, I'm not sure of the make. The bottom of the pink one is cut with a Fiskars border punch and all the cut edges are inked with a matching blue Distress Marker. I wrapped some pink organza ribbon around before fixing to the 6" square base card. The die cut image is fixed with foam pads and the tiny tags, bow and teddy charm are stuck on with glue dots as are the little Hobbycraft flowers.
Before I go I'd just like to show you these. I saw this crochet pattern in a Prima Makes magazine a while ago and as I knew another baby girl was on the way I just had to have a go at making them. They are somewhat impractical but sooo cute.
