A Few of my Favourite Things


In 2013 I became a grandma again, and as we did not know which it would be until the birth, I made two cards!  This is the card for a baby girl.  The base card is white, some baby themed peel offs have been used as stencils around the edge and pink Brilliance ink applied over them.  The peel offs are removed and can be used again.  The effect is subtle but very pretty.  The background panel isa piece of centura pearl card that has been embossed in a machine.  The panel is then cut with a large Nestability die, and matted on to a piece of pink pearlescent card that is the same shape but slightly bigger, and attached to the base card.   Before glueing the panel on to the pink frame a piece of ribbon and a bow are attached.  The central focal panel is created by stamping a suitable image on to white card in sepia ink and heat embossing with clear powder.   The image is coloured, then cut  to size and shape with a die.  It is also embossed and tinted around the edges with the Brilliance ink.  A panel of  pink pearlescent card is die cut and embossed, the edges tinted and glitter added.  A sentiment is added, then both the panels are attached to the card using dimensional glue.
