Baby girl

Hi crafter's

A new card to share. I was asked to make 20 thank you cards on the arrival of a new baby. I really like the patch stamps for babies so I chose this stamp from Woodware. The colours I used for the background are Juniper, Peach Bellini and Shell Pink Adirondack inks and Baby Pink, Buttercup and Meadow Green Promarkers for colouring. To create the background I put the Moroccan mask on to the white base card and inked through with the Adirondack inks using my ink dusters. I let the colours fade out towards the edge. I then cut some white card for the toppers and stamped the elephant in black Archival ink. As well as the elephant you also get the word baby in the boxes and two sizes of hearts so I stamped these out at the same time. I coloured the elephant in as shown and also the hearts adding the word Girl (this was from Stamping all day great place for all your words and sentiments) to the largest one. To finish the topper I ran the Baby Pink Promarker around the edge to frame. After colouring the boxes I embossed the card using a buttons mask by That Special Touch, then inked with Peach Bellini to enhance the embossing. I cut around the word to make a tag and punched a hole to thread some organza ribbon through, then stuck a pink button over the hole. Now I started to assemble. First I glued the topper in place then I stamped Thank you (which was a Clarity stamp) at the bottom of the card. The tag was stuck down with Pinflair glue to give a little dimension. Now stick down the hearts, rounding the largest one to give a bit of shape. To finish I used glitter glue on the flowers. For the insert I used a stamp of a babies hands I got from Crafty Individuals, this was stamped in opposite corners in Peach Bellini.

That's all this time, thanks for stopping by.
