Special Baby Card

December 8th, 2010

Hi Everyone

My friend Michelle Lancaster( Sparkle68) from the Trimcraft Forum has made some lovely baby cards using Meiflower products.

Awww such a gorgeous baby card!

This is Michelles instructions to make baby card in pink.

This is a 14cm square card and the teddy and ribbon are from Meiflower’s on-line shop. I used bazil bling pink card and Wild Rose Studio Polka Dots backing paper. I used nestebilities to make the circle and scalloped circle that the teddy is dancing in. I used pink buttons from my stash and threaded embroidery thread through these. I attached them with large glue dots. I stamped the sentiment on the polka dot paper and mounted onto white card.”

I love the way Michelle has used the buttons to finish off the card. This is a truly amazing card, well done Michelle! Thank you for letting me share this with everyone. Full Instructions on Trimcraft forum.

My Dancing Bear Baby Card

I think Michelle has put me to shame. I need to step it up a gear and get my head down to do some more card designs. I have managed to take some photographs of cards i made for Create and craft, so i will be putting them on the blog very soon.

This is my baby card using the blue dancing teddy bear. Matted and layered onto white and baby blue card.

I have used a large square white card as the base card. On the bottom half of the card, i have used a light baby blue stripy paper. On the top edge of the stripy paper i have added embossed ‘it’s a baby’ grosgrain ribbon.

The ‘baby’ sentiment is made from a section of printed grosgrain baby ribbon. Stuck onto a piece of card slightly larger than the ribbon.

    Glad you liked my card enough to put it on your blog Mei, I’m very flattered.
    I also really like your cute baby card and I think the sentiment cut from ribbon is a really nifty idea and looks gorgeous. :0) Michelle
