I was asked by a friend to make a card to celebrate the birth of her third Grandson. As she knew he was to be a boy I had a nosey round some of my fave blogs and found this card by Christine which gave me my first burst of inspiration, so much so that I bought the stamp and she used and a digi image to go with it from Pink Gem Designs.
I apologise for the photos being a wee bit naf I need to start taking them in daylight. Also don't look too closely at my colouring, I tried to water colour this digi image but it was making the printer ink run (lesson learned.)
The gingham is Papermania acetate, and the footprint paper was a freebie from a magazine, and the diamond pattern paper was from my stash. The ribbon along the bottom of the card is part of my Candy from the wonderful Marlene.
As you can see I added more inspiration, by doing a stairstep card, I had tried this for my previous post with the WoW Diamond Anniversary Card.
This is the stamp I first saw on Christine's Card that I just had to have. I've used Diamond Stickles round the two sentiments and also round the edges of the footprint paper panel and the image panel.
I had hoped to be able to match the font for this computer generated greeting to the that in the stamp but alas I have not got many to choose from on this PC. I must try and copy my fonts from my old PC to this one.
I love this little fabric pram embelli!
My friend adored the card and I hope you like it too.
See you soon and take care.
