Congratulations on the birth of your baby girl


This was a commissioned card for a baby girl - I was asked for it to be pink and personalised. The background paper is a 6 x 6 piece cut from a DCWV 12 x 12 with added pieces from my baby things box. The crib was die cut on the Scan n Cut from the Glitc & Glam Scattered lace USB, using a piece of flocked patterned pink paper to give a bit of texture to the card.

CCAYR February challenge: mainly red


This is my design card for Christmas crafts all year round February challenge: mainly red. I'm in the Christmas Belles group so we are posting here today - please click on the link to see the lovely crafting of the rest of the Belles group. The Gingerbread gals posted at the beginning of February here - please have a look at their lovely designs and join in our challenge there.

This was a commissioned card made in December, but not blogged. The background paper  and sentiment topper are from a lovely Craftwork Cards Christmas past collection. The sentiment was computer generated, printed on to Centura pearl white card with a hint of silver - I quickly covered with silver detail embossing powder and heated. This was cut and embossed with a todo die. Doily, crocheted flowers, pearls and felt deer were added from stash.


This is also for:
