Todays card has been made to celebrate the coming birth of our new Granddaughter, she is due any day now so I thought it was time to prepare ourselves and to be ready for the big event.
I have used one of Janet Roberts new stamps, to be honest I have used both the girl stamps, the second one Ive used on the inside but I havent taken a photo of that so you will have to excuse me for that one. Janet creates the most gorgeous designs and I absolutely love them and thought when I first saw it on her website that this is exactly what I needed to make a new baby card, you will find all her beautiful stamps at http://pinkgem-janet.blogspot.com/ she even has a blogcandy offer as well on the new ones.
Anyway I have stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Karisma colouring pencils, I also stamped an extra head to decoupage on top. Once Id done this I cut it out with one of my Nestabilitie Label Dies, and used a piece of Pink Pearlescent Card for the larger one Ive mounted it onto.
The base card is a A3 piece of white card cut to a 8"x8" size, and on top of this I have layered the Pink Pearlescent card and the of the patterned papers Ive used, I actually printed these out from one of my craft cds. Then for the second layer I have used my Martha Stewart border punch on another piece of Pink Pearlescent card and the second of the backing papers, the pearlescent card being the top layer and used a wide Pink Organza ribbon around the two, then stuck it to the base card.
Ive then stuck my mounted image on top of this with some foam tape. The stamped greeting is one of the Just-Rite oval stamps which I have done again onto white card and cut this out with my Oval Nestabilitie die, this also was stuck to the card with foam.
To finish of the card I have created some large multi flowers and with a pearl brad have attached them to the top right and bottom left of my card, but to add just a little something more on the bottom one I have used a Heart Jewel that I bought while at the NEC this year, I thought she could use it when she was older as a necklace maybe. The last little touch was the three pink heart buttons with a piece of ribbon threaded threw the holes and tied off.
