Labour of Love ...

Hi Everybody,


All these Baby Shower cards have been made for my Grand-Daughter Robyn  who is expecting her first baby in May 


I am going to be a Great Gran again and we know that this new baby is a boy.  Four year old Isabella is my first Great Grand-Daughter so one of each ... so far !!

I made forty of them for her to invite her friends to her baby shower and I will add them all to envelopes and box them as my gift to her. 

I have used the Wild Thing  stamp set from Clearly Besotted and I also have the matching die that I used to cut them all out.  

I have used the same white card from Papermill Direct for my top fold base card and the Blue spotty card from AnnaMarie Design


The  New Baby stamp is also from Clearly Besotted and there is a matching die to buy separately

All the images have been stamped and water coloured and then die cut to fit the oval shapes

There is variation in the lace added around the layers and I have dotted the pearls  from Want2Scrap differently on the cards too.





I only used three of the animals from the set and to each of the giraffes I have added googly eyes.  The lion and tigers have Glossy Accent noses.

I have to say I am really happy with the way these cards turned out and it was a labour of love indeed as it took me two full days to get them done

And I am pleased that Robyn was delighted with them as well ... Job done!

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  15. Morning, Christina,
    WOW, that really was a labour of love to get all the cards ready for the baby shower...can you remember when we didn't have them this side of the pond and wondered just what a baby shower actually was lol.
    I love the animal stamps you've used and the google eyes on the giraffe are just too sweet :)
