New Baby Niece

Good Morning Everyone.

Last week with all that cold weather my 4th little niece was born, she picked a cold week to arrive.  So i kept in the warm and made some cards for her. 

Baby Bottle shaped card.  I first cut the bottle shape from white linen card, keeping the card spine to the left.  I then cut a smaller layer and die cut an oval into it,  then dry embossed with the swiss dots.  Added red gingham card behind the aperture and added the layer onto the front with 3d foam tape.  I then added an oval frame and my die cut giraffe. Id wrapped cotton twine around the neck. Computer printed sentiment die cut into a small tag and added with more twine and a co-ordinating button. 

For the second card i dug out my old fabulous stork stamp.  Ive stamped him onto white card and simply watercoloured in lilac and touches of yellow for his beak & feet. I then cut him out.  Stamped sentiment and die cut with pierced delight spellbinders die

6x6 white linen cardblank, matted and layered with a lilac pattern paper die cut into a wonky stitched square, matted onto die cut white square and onto lilac pearl card.  Pearls to finish.

And a card for the new big sister, i found this lovely image of two little girls in an old LOTV art pad.  Computer printed sentiment, and then ive just matted the image onto purple card to pick up the colours in the topper. 

I also made this tag for the new big sister to add to a little gift.  Elephant die cut into grey pearl card, yellow gingham circle, tag cut in white and grey pearl card and die cut alpha's. 

While i was at it i made a few more bottle cards for the box

Yellow gingham one

and blue and grey polka dot ones, all same details as the first one. 

Items used:
Tattered lace giraffe & elephant dies

Memory box cross stitch rectangles
Anna marie polka dot & gingham cardstock

Hi Emma, can you please tell me if you made a template for the baby bottle card or was it a stencil or die cut? If it was a stencil or die cut would you be able to tell me how I could obtain one please. Your cards are really lovely & so inspirational. Many thanks, Jennifer x

Hi Jennifer, sorry taken so long to reply been without internet for 6wks, thank you for your lovely comment, the baby bottles were cut using an unbranded die set i was given, so sorry can't help much with that, but i do often make my own templates for different shapes by downloading a clipart outline and printing it out onto cardstock, cutting out and then drawing around them onto the card i want to use. Hope that helps a bit. Emmax
