A Baby Girl ...

Hi Everybody,

Click to Enlarge
I have made this card today for a friend who has just had a baby girl.   I can't resist  baby cards especially  for  girls when  I can go to  town with the  ...  Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls.

This  is right up  my street and I really enjoy making this type  of card.

So here is my card to  welcome the  new baby.

I have made it to a book style and I have used the Grand Labels 4

I have cut a page from each of the four largest dies all in different card... and another layer of lace in between the fourth and third layers.
The cream card has baby feet embossed into it.

The other layers have also been embossed and a double layer of pink and white braiding has been added to the centre.

The pink bow at the top has a small pearl heart buckle and the charm is a baby shoe in silver.

The flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts  are a mixture of  Roses, Cherry Blossoms, Carnations and Tulips and all have been glittered with Glamour Dust.

The leaves have been cut from the Foliage set from  Spellbinders.

The Butterflies  I have used are Organza with glitter on the wings .... very pretty.

I have added the flower corsage to a Labels 20 shape and used the matching pearl   "Bling"  from Want2Scrap

I have also added the babys' name and birth date to the same kind of label and added in the pearls again.

I have made a card stand in cream to display it ... and of course it has to have matching box.

The box lid also has the baby feet embossed into it.

If you want to make a box to match your cards you will find the instructions in the tutorial

Hope you like ....
