Welcome Little One

Hi everyone,

Well here is a new baby card I made recently for the arrival of a little girl. For the main image I used a Forever Friends sticker by DoCrafts and used stickles to add some sparkle to the edges of the towel. I then matched that with pastel colours - mainly pinks with dashes of other colours too.

The embossing folder that I used is a fairly small one, as I use a cuttlebug, so I embossed the white piece of card twice and hid the join underneath the strip of pink stripy paper. As the pattern is random, it is impossible to tell. I then added a few tiny pink star buttons randomly over the card.

I would like to enter this card into the Crafting Cafe Challenge "Welcome Little One"

I hope you like this card and thanks for looking.

Little Boy Cards

Hi everyone!

Today I want to share some cards I made for little boys' birthdays. I have never had to make cards for children before, so this was completely new to me! I really enjoyed the challenge though and it was nice to make something different.

When starting I knew that I wanted to use bright colours and keep the cards quite simple as they were for young boys.

The first is a first birthday card. I used the main image of a lion, which I cut out from some wrapping paper. You can get so many nice images from wrapping paper at a good price and you often get lots of different images on one sheet. I kept the rest of the card simple with a plain blue background and different colour blue stars. I picked the colours to match the "Happy Birthday" banner that I used. Obviously I had to include the number 1 too as it's such an important birthday!

The second card is for a boy's third birthday. I used more colours on this card, but again used wrapping paper for my main images of a boat and a bus. I then added a large number 3 and some stars in colours to match.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my cards and thanks for looking.

Flower Card

Hi everyone,

Hope you all had a fab Christmas and New Year. I managed to make nearly 60 Christmas cards and had to do a few last minute quick ones too! I am still working on my December Daily at the moment. Hoping to get that finished soon so that I can get on with thank you cards. 

Here is a birthday card that I made for my Mum in December. It was a nice change from all the Christmas cards!

I stamped flowers onto patterned paper and cut them out before arranging them on the embossed white card. I outlined this using a black rectangular glitter peel off, which I think makes it stand out. I like the black lines against the colour and pattern of the papers used. 

Thanks for looking!
