My First Baby Card

One of my team mates, Vix aka Chunky Munky over on UKScrappers gave birth to a baby girl called Molly on Tuesday evening and so I just had to make a pretty pink baby card to welcome the new arrive to the world of paper crafting.


I started with a pink card and matted on some Basic Grey Sugared patterned papers...I adore the one with the giraffes on, its so cute. I was going to use a Magnolia stamped image of Tingla but I matted the paper too far down and couldn't fit her sitting on the ribbon without her head popping over the top lol so I gave up on that. Instead I stamped the greeting 'Congratulations' Circle of Friends stamp set from Stampin' Up and matting it several times on co-ordinating paper and card stock using my beloved scallop punches, ran a velvet ribbon across and tied a little bow with a white safety pin through the knot for a finishing touch...now its just got to be posted and weighed because its a little chunky with all my layering and you never know nowadays with Royal Mail!!


Until I craft again xxx
