New Baby Cards

Bet you had already guessed what the title of today's blog was going to be! :)

A4 Baby Card

Finished size of this pearlescent card is A4 - wow never made one this big before.  Image was from Inklined The Next Big One, coloured with promarkers, and then distressed with pink and  matted and layered onto purple and pink pearlescent card.  Pink chiffon ribbon and multi bow (made without a Bowdabra!), to which was added a darker pink metalic ribbon brooch that I had made earlier.  Finished off with some ribbon teddies and bows from my stash.

These next two close ups were taken outside - so they appear "bluer" than they really were.  (why does that always happen?).  The picture above has true colours!

I also  made a couple of 6" square cards for the new baby's sisters.  I think the images are from LOTV - I have had them in my stash for a while - all I can remember is that I bought them at Ally Pally. Mounted on a square doily bought from Ribbonbox whilst at Farnborough, which I edged with pink.  Personalised and a ribbon and gem added.   (I saw pre-made ribbon bows with gems at Farnborough - and thought I can make them cheaper - so I copied the idea!)

The inserts were personalised for them and said: 

How Lovely (name) !

So pleased to learn you have a
New Baby Sister - Tabitha Ann


(tomorrow I will try and remember to photograph the "blue" topper that I prepared and didn't use! and I won't be hanging on to it , just in case as my DIL, who has had a rough time with this birth, said I can forget about getting a grandson!)
