Welcome new baby card

Goodness - so long between posts!  It is amazing how work can get in the way of creating.  Have been dabbling with a few things, but nothing else finalised as yet.

Here is a card I have made and finally took to the Post Office and posted today!

This is the front of the card.  The digital image is from Sweet & Sassy and is titled 'precious baby'

This is a close up of the front

This is part of the inside of the card.  Did not want to include the message I wrote on the card, so this photo looks a little out of sync

Trying to capture the 'bling' on the little message.  I mixed Stampin Up Shimmer Paint (Champagne) with Isocol (rubbing alcohol) in a small spray bottle and sprayed the cardstock to create the shimmer.  Unfortunately cannot get a really good idea from this photo, but it is just amazing!

Precious baby card was made up as follows:

Pink and White American Craft cardstock
Cuttlebug embossing folder for the dots
Misc flowers
Tim Holtz 'Hanging Sign' for the inside of the card
Martha Stewart border punches
Spellbinders Labels 1
Kaisercraft flower rhinestones
Doohickey die cut to size
Rose embossed ribbon from stash

Coloured with Copic markers:

Owl Project - 2nd Birthday

A friend asked me to make a birthday card for her daughter who is turning two this week.  She is obsessed with owls, so that was the theme. 

I used a pattern from PaperShapez for the Owl box and decided to make the card into an interactive book with owls, butterflies, trees and animals throughout.  The designer paper is from 3 Bugs in a Rug - Savannah - Land of Make Believe.  Love the soft colours in this range.

The gift box is on the left and the 'card' on the right
Side on of the 'Owl' gift box

Close up of projects

As you open the pages of the card, there is a letter on each page spelling out her name

This is a view of the spine.  Made the book so that it would 'stand up' on a shelf

Ready for the birthday girl :)

Looking forward to getting back to some Copic colouring soon.  More on that later.
