One of my friends from the MAC forum had a lovely christmas surprise when her first baby arrived a little early! So, I was actually quite quick in making her a card in the middle of January - quick for me anyway lol!
This is what I made
I printed the weight of the baby onto card and then positioned a forever friends stamp on it so it could be read on the bundle. I then coloured it with copics.
I used Pink Petticoat "Gingham" and "Stripes" paper and used my new Spellbinders Grand Calibur to pass the whole card through to cut the aperture (I love that I can do that now!) and attached the ff bear with some chain and jump rings.
I made a canopy at the top using a piece of plain card. I punched the edge with a scalloped Stampin' Up! punch, scored and folded. I covered it with paper to match the rest of the card and tied a bit of ribbon at the top.
I attached a selection of charms with silver coloured chain and jump rings.
I printed out "Welcome Baby" spacing the letters so I could cut them out with a circle punch and attached them to the card, some of the letters are raised with foam pads for a bit more depth.
I added a ribbon to the bottom and wove it through a fancy tag with the baby's name on it.
On the inside, I put the date of birth on the back of the image in the aperture and more of the pink petticoat paper to compliment the front.
I then made a matching box to keep it in
I also made a gift bag to match
I shall attempt a tutorial for the bag next week!
