Oh Baby!

A friend hired me to make a gender neutral baby card and I thought I'd better take some photos and show them to you before she comes by.

Here is the first one: I call it "The one little duck with the feather on its back."

I distressed the background paper and used stickles on the circles to provide some blitz!

A close up of the little heart button flower.

She wanted a Scripture verse inside the card, so this is the one I used.


The second card was a baby carriage. I used the same background paper because I thought it looked like the sky.

The handle was a bit tricky. I cut it out of silver paper, and then I used glossy accents on it to give it a more dimensional look. Unfortunately I got a little air bubble in it and didn't notice it on time.

This photo just shows a bit of a close up of the carriage details and the baby peeking out.

The inside also had a Scripture verse and I outlined the background with lace.

I love these little buttons. I have SO MANY buttons, and I thought I'd better start using them. I think I'll put some on the inside of the baby duck card too.

Anyway...my girlfriend came by and picked out the baby carriage card and one of the Onesie cards I made a while back. I use them to attach to diaper cakes. One day I'll make some smaller ones as thank you cards for after a baby shower. They're just so cute and easy!



Well, that's it for today! Thank you for stopping by and have a nice weekend!
