The Card Box
Close up of Bow and Stickpins
Good Morning Ladies,
A bit of a change to our week this week, Sue is away in the Forest Of Dean and Pat has managed to get a cancellation appointment with her hip surgeon, so no meet up this week! Wow we will have so much more to talk about next week!!!
Now onto today's card, I was asked to make a card by a colleague of Becca's to give her daughter abs Son in Law, thanking them for the gift of a Granddaughter. A wonderful gesture, but I have never come across such a card before.
So I decided to just go with the New Baby Girl card, with a bit of added lace and a thank you sentiment.
Thankfully, the Lady loved it !
I found a lovely Scrapbooking shop nearby (well 30 miles away), thankfully they stocked Bazzill card so I could stock up on baby pink card, you just can't buy a particular colour of card online. Having said that now I know the names of the colours I like buying online will be easier. It is can lovely shop though, A Maze of Memories is the name, but sadly they don't sell online, shame as they stock just about every brand of stamp and die.
I got the card, I needed, made an easel card using an 8 x 8 base card, matted it with baby pink card, added a strip of Lace which I had woven some baby pink ribbon through across both the top and bottom panels of the card, I printed the babies birth details and die cut it with a heart die, I then added a layer of pink lace and added it to the middle of the top panel. I then printed out the 'thank you' message and die cut with a Spellbinders squared die, I trimmed it with pearls and backed it with lace to match the heart, added it to the bottom to create the stopper for the easel card.
I added a couple of bows, some flowers and a couple of stick pins to finish the card.
I then made a box and decorated it to match the card.
What do you think?
