Card for a Baby Girl Made for Create and Craft TV

September 20th, 2010

Hello Everyone

Some of you may already know that recently i have been on Create and Craft T.V. First time i have ever on T.V and it was the hardest thing i have ever done. It was ‘live T.V’ which was harder to do. There was no practice run before hand. Watching it back i looked horrified at first, my mum and brother were watching it and said i looked like i was going to cry. . . . but after 20 minutes i managed to settle in after my friends from Trimcraft Forum sent me some lovely messages of support.

I was on the shopping channel selling MeiFlower products. There were 5 different kits – oriental, baby, dogs, flowers and a paper pack.

Made all my own samples for the show. Spent weeks on all my cards but unfortunately due to time not all the cards were shown. So i thought i would start putting them on the blog for everyone to have a look at.

Customers from Create and craft loved the baby kit, this is one of the cards i designed using the baby products.

I have used a large square card and covered most of the card with brown parcel paper. My husband was asking why i used parcel paper. . . I said it’s simple really i like the colour !!!

I have matted and layered pink gingham card with brown card. Stuck a cute pink dancing bear onto brown card.

I have folded pink embossed grosgrain baby ribbon to create a tag. On the right hand side of the card, attached a pink baby dummy with lilac satin ribbon.
