I was asked over the weekend to make a baby card for the birth of a baby girl. I really didn’t have much time as I had been away for our Rotary District Conference this past weekend, but said that I would get started on it as soon as I got home. I started work on it at 8 pm and the gal came to pick the card up at 9:30 this morning.
Since I still had stuff all over my desk from my last card (the quilt) I decided to make a baby quilt for this one. I still have a ton of scraps and I am glad to be using them up. The difference with this card, as compared to the last, is that I cut the pieces out as I went along instead of pre cutting them because I wasn’t quite sure of the design I wanted. I drew a grid, lightly with pencil, on the card first to help me with placement and then began playing around. The paper is still Graphic 45 “From Baby to Bride”. After everything was laid out and glued down, I cut it down to size and pasted it on peach cardstock. The inside is personalized with the child’s name. I embossed the patchwork with the Sizzix embossing folder “Country Foliage”: I think I’ve used this embossing folder more in the last few days than since I bought it several years ago! LOL
I could’ve (and was tempted) left the front with no added embellishments but but I cut out the baby carriage for Mariann Designs Dies, added a touch of bling on the wheels and a bow in the middle of the carriage.
I like how it turned out and my friend was quite pleased.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by. Ciao!
