Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by my little ol’ blog this morning! It’s Tuesday so that means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at passion for promarkers challenge and this week the lovely Emma has set the theme. As some of you might know Emma is expecting a baby so her theme will come as no surprise – she wants to see “babies” this week. The whole design team are eagerly awaiting the new arrival to our team so we really enjoyed making our cards this week. Here is my card:
I have used a super cute image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘baby Fynn’. I made my card by using the largest of my go-kreate dies (I used the XXL square frame frilly #1) and folded it in half. I then used the smaller sizes in the pack to do my matting and layering. The image is cut out using nesties labels 1. It’s the first time I’ve made this shape card, although I’ve seen them on other crafter’s blogs (Bev Rochester always uses these dies to fantastic effect) and I have to say I’m really pleased with the result. I think it looks really sweet for a baby card.
We have a new sponsor this week In2Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 2 stamps of their choice from their shop.
The rest of the design team have created gorgeous cards once again this week, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
