Added extra: hand made clothes hanger
This card was made for baby Anthony. I wanted something simple but at the same time different from what I usually make. I thus decided to use vellum on this one. Vellum gives a soft touch to the card, perfect for a newborn baby card. As you know, vellum is semi translucent. This means that also the glue can be seen through. I therefore used some brads on both top and bottom of the card and added some glue behind the center piece, to keep everything in place.
I decided to make this card completely cream and blue to keep the classic baby colours. As this card was meant as baptism card, I did not use a standard baby stamp, but added this little bird as sign of peace between earth and heaven.
Hope you liked this week’s card. Have a nice day!
Hello everyone! Today I have a rather special card for you. This was a custom order from my best customer, who wanted a birth card featuring both the zodiac sign and ascendency of the baby. I had to study a bit, and look up how those signs were represented and this is what I came up with.
I love to personalize cards, it is always such a challenge!!! How do you like my take on the inquiry?
I am just hopping by very quickly as my time is “counted” lately. We have decided to add sport to our already very busy schedule, which eats away on my precious crafting time. But it is necessary and doing me very good. The nights after we go to the gym, I am able to sleep now! No more waking up in the middle of the night… Just great! But now, on top of that, I have a couple of big orders to fullfil, so the remaining crafting time I have is going into the making of birth announcements, baby favors and communion favors. All together this means I only have a little time to spend with you, to make pictures, to write blogposts, and so on. So I decided to schedule a couple of posts in advance and share with you some of my older cards for which I already have the pictures made, processed and uploaded online.
So here is the first one: my favorite baby drawer card. It is made based on the same fold as the “baby girl’s chest” post I shared with you a couple of years back, but I prefer the colors of this one. What about you?
However, as I told you, I am just hopping by, thus no further chatting today. But if you want more information, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment, I will make time to answer as soon as I can.
Today I’ll share with you a present I made for friends who just became the parents of the little Joseph. I wanted to make something special, so I decided to make a 1 year album in which they had 1 page per month to add pictures of the growing baby.
Any suggestions or remarks? Please do leave me your comments… I’ll certainly answer you!
