Baby Carriage

Hi Everyone,

And Happy Friday

Today I'm posting a card that has no cute stamping what-so-ever. Shock Horror!!!

I made it for one of my colleagues at work who is leaving today, to start her maternity leave. It's her first baby, and I know she's so excited. I thought I'd make her a special card.

I wanted to experiment and do something different, so I thought I'd play around with my Spellbinders Nestabilities, and use different colours to make something unique.

I just love it, and it was so easy to create. I used those download papers from Pink Petticoat again as in the last card (different colour this time). I absolutely adore them. I layered them again, as I like the look, and used my Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch. The baby carriage was just cut using the circle nesties, with a quadrant cut out to make the shape, extremely easy to do. The wheels were smaller circles. Then I had fun decorating it with lace, gems, ribbon and brads. This card is so simple to make, and you can use any embellishments you like to dress it up, boy, girl or don't know.

You can see some of the detail in this close up, and my favourite little butterflies were punched from my 'best buy' punch from Tesco.

I decorated the inside with leftover scraps.

We're all going out to an Italian restaurant this evening, so I'm going to have a treat and not worry about the 'wedding diet'

Hope you like what I've done.

Take care and Happy Crafting
