Cards For a Baby Girl


I have 2 sweet cards to share today. Very pink and girly and just right for a new baby.

I used My Mind’s Eye papers with craft paper borders. Loads of chipboard and pretty scalloped edges. The image is from Crafty Secrets…it’s actually canvas so it has a nice texture. I inked all the edges to define the layers. Walnut Distress Ink from Tim Holtz.

I added some pom pom trim for added detail. The buttons are real vintage from or almost local antiques market. The butterfly chipboard is from Pink Paislee.

To make this pretty ruffly flower I started with creamy colored fabric…then stamped on the polka dot pattern and inked the edges. Finished off simply with a large button and ribbon leaves.

I’m thrilled with how these turned out with their soft colors and vintage images.  Adding the chipboard elements gives them lot’s of dimension.
