Baby Blue

Hi Everybody,

A couple of days ago I showed you a baby card in pink that I had made for a friends new daughter.

Well here is the same type of card but this time in blue and I have done a video tutorial on how to make it....Spellbinders Grand  Labels 4 will show you how.

It makes a beautiful design that can be adapted for any occasion.

Just think how lovely this would be as a Wedding card with the Bride and Grooms names  on one of the panel along with the date.

The stand is from Joy Crafts ans there is a tutorial  Creating Card Stands   with a link directly to Ebay to buy them.

I have used Centura Pearl from  Crafters Companion  for the base page and embossed it.

The other card is from Inspirations  which is based in Preston.

I have used the same Baby Feet embossed card on this one and used it for the box lid too... and there is a video on   Making Boxes

The Corsage is made with  flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and it is a mixture of Roses, Tulips and  Cherry Blossoms and they have been sparkled with Glamour Dust.

And here is a real close up of the flowers.

After the video was completed I decided to add in the silver baby charm.

Just need a boy baby to send it too now !!

  12. Christina this is absolutely gorgeous, such beautiful colours and love the book effect..like the touch of glitz on your flowers


  13. this is a lovely card and you're so right about using it as a wedding card.

  14. Christina, well done. Beautiful. I am checking out which Cricut cartridges I have and how to turn it into one of these cards...off to my craft room ;) Thanks for sharing...

  15. Christina - these are just stunning. Love love the colours and all the little details. Have a fabulous week.

  16. Christina, as always an inspiration to us all. I actually completed a card using the Grand Decorative Ovals for my mother yesterday in green, her favorite color. I will share as soon as I finish decorating it for her. Have to go now, am babysitting my grandson, full time job.

  17. I don't know how you keep coming up with these beauties,my creativity would have gone on strike already.
    Gorgeous card
    hugs adie

  18. Oh I wish I had those grand labels, I had them in my hand and just couldn't spend $75 or more dollars, eek! But I am regretting that decision now that I see what you are doing with them, I loved the pink one but the blue one really talks to me, maybe because I raised boys? mm? I love the box you created, beautiful!!! You are amazing and awesome.. Love everything you do. hugs

  19. You have ENABLED me again Christina!! Now I must have the Grand Labels 4 dies! My 2nd Grandson is expected in May and what a perfect idea this is! This card is stunning and would be a great addition to his baby book! I also have the book dies, but they are not the Grand size, but I could attach it to on a Card Creator die. Just beautiful!!! Thank you so much for sharing this amazing card. I am so in love with it! Hugs Lori

  20. Both cards have the WOW factor for sure. Absolutely Stunning cards


  21. Both are absolutely stunning, Christina!! The flowers are gorgeous!! Amazing and inspirational, as always!! Have a great day :)

  22. Oh Christina I love this and yes it would look good adapted as a wedding card as well xXx

  23. The pink baby girl card is gorgeous but for once I think I prefer the blue 'boy' - very unsual for me as I'm normally a pink/purple fanatic! Must have something to do with just having boys in our family ha ha!

    Seriously both cards are absolutely stunning and a wonderful keepsake gift for the recipients.

  24. This is stunning, love it xx Jan

  25. Such beautiful cards. Thanks for making the video and sharing such beauty with us.

  26. Hi Christina,
    I have followed you for over a year now and I must say you have expanded greatly. All you cards are gorgeous. When I try to copy and do the same things they are never as pretty as the ones you have done. I would be so honored to win something from your Blog. But do you mail to the United States?
