I was asked at a Market I did a couple of weeks ago if I could create some Baby Gift Cards in Lemon, Pink, Blue & Mint. I love creating this size card. They always look so very cute! These are some of the samples I emailed Bernadette.
…. to Bonnie & Cam on the arrival of their lovely little baby – Zoey Ann. May she bring you lots of joy & laughter.
My niece had an early Christmas present 6 days ago – the arrival of her lovely little daughter. She wasn’t due until mid-January but surprised everyone by arriving a month early. Maybe she didn’t want to miss out on Christmas. Mind you, she did muck all their plans up, as they were going to do some work on their home before moving in
If it is one thing you can’t predict is the arrival of babies – they are ready when they are ready!
I hard a hard time creating this card, but now I think I was over-thinking it a lo, so I went back to some of my cards I have created over the years & took bits & pieces from a couple of them to come up with this card. I am happy with the result. It is a “me” card!
I embossed a piece of Whisper White CS with the Decorative Dots EF prior to adhering to a piece of Pink Pirouette CS & finally to the Base Card – Whisper White.
I printed “Congratulations” onto a piece of Whisper White CS using MDS , cut it down to size, scored a line above & below the word prior to attaching to card front.
The baby shoes is from the Stamp Set – “Baby, We’ve Grown” & was stamped in Soft Suede Ink, coloured with Blender Pen & Pink Pirouette Marker. It was then run through the BS using the Circle Framelits. To lift it a bit, I cut a layer from Pink Pirouette CS with the Starburst Framelits prior to adhering to Base Card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The Butterflies were created using the gorgeous “Beautiful Wings” Embosslits from Pink Pirouette CS. I decided that I wanted the top part of the card to be mainly white, so the butterflies were adhered randomly to the bottom part of the card.
A girl has gotta have a little bit of bling, no matter how small, so to complete the card Pearls were added to the shoes & butterflies.
