Simple card for a baby boy
It is 10.30 am here in Jakarta as I post this card. The weather is a bit cloudy and it may soon be pouring...
Hope you all are doing well - keeping warm and staying healthy. I do hope that March brings better weather - hopefully the daffodils will be out by then.
I made this card on creamy, vanilla cardstock.
The scallop edged oval has been die cut using my Sizzix dyes.
The embossed flowers are from Cuttlebug.
The embossed pram is from Sizzix - had it lying with me for 7 years and used it for the first time!
For the distressed effect I used Jim Holtz ranger inks - broken china.
I coloured in the pram with Do craft pastel chalks and rubbed glitter glue on top.
The shiny ground below the pram was made with left over glitter glue in the tube which was a waste really but I somehow managed to retrieve it. I cut the glitter glue tube in the centre and dragged out the remaining dried up glitter glue with a satay stick and stuck it on this card...
The sentiment is handwritten and the faux stitching is done with Sakura nail pens (which belong to Zeenya). They have a special 3 D effect on paper which looks really cool.
Ever since I discovered how nice these Sakura nail pens are, I have conveniently in my art and craft drawer! Keepers are owners!!!
I know this is a rather common place card but I did enjoy making it.
Have a nice day, afternoon, evening (or goodnight) depending on where you are!
