New Baby Girl Card

If you already seen my NewBaby Girl Cookies post below this one, you’ll know that I became an Aunty at the weekend to the lovely Lucia Isabella.  So this week’s card just had to be the card I made to celebrate her arrival into the world! 

Card Recipe:
Stamp: QVC
Colouring Mediums: Memento Rich Cocoa, Promarker Pens
Paper & Card: Melissa Frances, Elegance Satin,
Tools: Spellbinders, Sizzlit, Grand Calibur
Embellishments: Lace, hand-made Pearl & Crystal Hat Pin, mulberry flowers, pearl swirls, baby shoe charm, ribbon charm, silky crush ribbon

This card shows that you do need to dig about in your long-not-used stash when a new occasion presents itself!  As I don’t go in for much “cute” with my cards, I was struggling to find a stamp suitable for a new baby.  However, I looked in my craft over-flow cupboard where I keep the stash that I no longer use and found a set of naïve stamps that I bought from QVC when I first started rubber stamping.  Within was this cute teddy, just perfect for our new little star!

So I stamped image onto Joanna Sheen’s Elegance Satin cardstock using Memento ink in Rich Cocoa.  This was coloured in with Promarkers and then I accented the image with glue pen , crystal glitter and rhinestones.  I cut it out with Spellbinders basic circle and lightly coloured the debossed edge with pink to achieve a faux mat. This was then mounted onto Spellbinders Vintage Lace motif, from which I hung a little baby shoe charm.  

The paper is from Melissa Frances, which has also been in my craft room for some time!  To finish, I added die-cut Vintage Lace corners and a die-cut heart, accented with glitter and rhinestones.  On went my mulberry paper flowers, handmade hatpin (see my tutorial on how to make hatpins) and a ribbon charm which I altered with Promarkers to emphasising the wording.  I do love a lot of detail, and hope you do too!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Country View Cards - Pick & Mix
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Swirls and Lace
