Today I made a commisioned card for my sister. She needs a card for a soon-to-be-born Baby Boy. It is not my everyday stuff to make Baby cards, but I really loved doing this cutie :) I started panicking when I came to actually start doing the card, and I realised that I had no cardstock or DP adapted for a Baby boy card, only a couple of too small scraps, so I had to think for a while what to do (as it's Saturday evening, and I don't find open craft shops). Anyway, after some time, I decided to download backgrounds from a digital scrapbooking site, and printed the white cardstock from both sides. If you click on the main image you'll see the large light blue spots on the white card, and further down, you'll see the inside of the card, differently printed with blue background and white stars. I love it!! When I settled the cardstock issue, I coloured in the brand new Pink Petticoat Sweet Cheeks image in water-colours and distress ink for the wheels.
I heat embossed the pram with clear embossing powder mixed with glitter, and coloured "It's a Boy!" with glitter pen.. I matted the image on yellow cardstock, and punched two different colours with the Martha Stewart LOVELY doily lace punch that darling Lim sent me.
Isn't it lovely?? :) That super-cute pacifier tied with the double- ribbon bow is also a gift of Lim. Finally i added some pastel buttons and a sentiment in coordinating colours..
I hope that you're having a lovely weekend, and that next Monday you'll be back here, cause as I told you, it's my turn to set this week's challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog.
P.S. Can someone solve the mystery i have??? Why do the cards seem like they are not straight in photos, when they actually are??? :/
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
