Today I have for you a very special baby card. I made this card for my sister in law who's daughter got last week a little baby girl. I made this card already a while ago but could not show it to you until the baby was born. But now the baby has born and everything is fine with mother and child I can show it to you on my blog.
Because it is my nice of course I did my best to make a lovely card for her.
The image is a digi coming from Lili of the Valley, "Balloon Basket". I coloured this sweet stamp up with my Copics and then cut her out with a Nestabilitie, "Scalloped Oval".
The papers I used are from an old paper pad from Papermania. I inked all the papers up with Distress Ink, "Walnut Stain". I also used a paper doily.
Sentiment stamps I used are from Lili of the Valley and Personal Impressions. The word 'Baby' is made with rub off letters.
Punches used are from Martha Steward, "Doily Lace" and "Glassene Butterfly".
The little flags with the rub off letters is an old die from Marianne Design. The swirl is a Doohickey from Magnolia.
The big edge is made with a die from Noor! Design. I cut it out twice, one time from pink card stock and one time from the paper pad.
The flowers, buttons and white leaves coming from Wild Orchid Crafts. On the flowers I used as usual some Stickels, "Star Dust". The pink rhinestone sparkle is coming from The Hobbyhouse. At the bottom of the flowers on the left I attached a pram charm with some Scrappers Floss.
The flat back pearls, rhinestones and ribbon are coming from my stash.
Both insides of the card I decorated also. I used for this a Scalloped Heart Nestabilitie. The corners are made with a die from Quickutz. And on the other side I made some tags made with Doohickeys from Magnolia. The Vintage Seam Binding is also from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Between the left inside I stuck a big tag. One side decorated with design paper and on the backside left it blanc with only a stamp from Marianne Design. The hole on the tag I made with a punch from Fiskars. And in every hole I knotted a different ribbon.
Well, this was a bit of a long post and more photo's then usual. I do hope you like this sweet card. Thanks every body for passing by. I hope you have a lovely Friday and see you soon!
