Welcome little one

Morning all.
Still no dry weather around here, so the hay is still standing in the field and we will probably need the tractor to cut the lawn! Hopefully the weather will stay dry for a couple of days so I can at least get the lawn cut asap!
Over at Cardz4Galz we have a new challenge for you.

WELCOME LITTLE BABY

So any birth related projects so long as they are of a feminine nature!
Here is my card for your inspiration.


Quite a simple one to make once I thought up the design but it went through a couple of redesigns and a lot of wasted silver mirri board before I ended up with this!
Originally I stamped my giraffe from STAMPlorations Tweet love, and made a frame from the mirri card but it was too small to enclose the image as I wanted it to. After a lot of faffing and panic that I would not get it done in time I glanced down and saw the die for the giraffe which matches the set and then went down a totally different route with just the negative space left from the die cut of the giraffe. The DP was from the scrap box and the bow was made with a scrap of ribbon I cut from a new top that kept poking out when I first wore it, coloured with a green Copic marker.
The sentiment is from another STAMPlorations set, Heaven Sent. I popped up the front panel over the dots and silver by cutting the same die from the center of a piece of fun foam and gluing it behind. I did this because the die cut is quite open and the foam supported the small edges better than bits of foam tape.

For more inspiration check out the rest of the team and why not join in.

I'd like to join in over at:-

  1. Well it was worth the effort Julie because it is a really lovely card. Our lawn is almost knee high and hasn't been cut for about ten days, Martin is the keen on the horses grazing it off!! Funny that!! xx
