Baby girl in buggy

I seem to very rarely get to make baby cards for baby girl; it’s always boys, boys and more boys. Then suddenly I got asked to do two almost at the same time. As with the other card I’ve chosen to hide the name of the baby.

The image I’ve used on this is by Wee Stamps. Isn’t it cute? I’m quite happy with the shading on it and tried to keep it soft and simple. I made a border around the image using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some cheese close and punched out some leaves and butterflies with Martha Stewart punchers.

Here is another photo of the card laying down

Baby boy in buggy

card250_1Time for another card that’s I’ve made for someone else, based on another card I have made. She was quite fond of a card I had made for another co-worker, for a baby. I suggested we add some blue and make it a bit more masculine, but we had to keep some of the purple as that is her favourite colour. I’m pleased with how I managed to keep it obvious it’s been inspired by the other card, but still make it quite different.

I used a pre-coloured topper by The Hobby House. Craftwork Cards have made the doily. The ribbon, lace and card stock is from a local shop. All the flowers are purchased at Wild Orchid Crafts as well as the big white pearls, and the punches I have used are by Martha Stewart. As you can see, my love of adding butterflies to everything is still quite strong, heh.
