New Arrival Olivia Maeve

Hi All

One of my neighbours has just had a beautiful baby girl.  I made a card to commemorate her birth and also a quick card for big sister Tilly.  I hope you like them.

I matted some patterned papers from my stash onto pale pink pearlescent card stock.

The bottom layer was made to fit a 6 x 6 card and the the two smaller layers were added in a haphazard style onto the card.  

I coloured onto an MDF baby girl that I bought from CleverCut using Copics and attached this to a piece of the pearlescent card stock and attached to the card front.

I stamped A Special Delivery Calendar which I bought a few years ago from Pink Gem Designs, as it was so long ago I'm not sure if it is still available. I cut this out using a circle punch and cut a slightly larger mat again using a circle punch from the pearlescent card stock and attached to the front of the card using foam tape.

 Buttons were added to two corners and a third to the spine using pink and white bakers twine.

I finally added the name by handwriting onto MDF tags from CleverCut which I attached with bakers twine, but I also glued them down to keep them in place.  

This is the box lid for Olivia's card.  I matted some more of the patterned paper onto the pink pearlescent card stock over the whole lid.

I stamped the Baby Girl sentiment using a set of stamps from Buzzcraft, I'm not sure where I bought them from but they are item no 466 which is a Birth/Christening set. Again this was matted on the pearlescent card and added at a jaunty angle to the middle of the box lid.

This is the card I made for Olivia's big sister Tilly.

The main image was stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured using Copics.

I matted this onto lilac card and and rounded two opposite corners but left the other two square and added gems to these.

I matted an A5 card using two different patterned papers from my stash and covered the join with some pink lace. 

I stamped the sentiment on the top section of the card, and added gems to all 4 corners.  

I wrote 'Big Sister' in the balloon and covered this with a scratch off sticker.

I then attached the main image using foam tape.

Thanks for popping in.

Lots of Love
