New Grandma

Hi Bloggers.

No, I'm not a Grandma! At least not for a few years, I hope!

Here's today's card for a new Grandma -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions Twinkle Twinkle Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with CS Pretty in Pink Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax over the surface. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the image from the Justrite We're Having a Baby Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I coloured in using Antique Linen and Spun Sugar Distress Ink, pulling the colour out using a Water Brush.

I placed the banner from the Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Die Set over the image and stamped the wording where I wanted it, again using Watering Can Archival. The then cut it out and inked through the die with Pretty in Pink Colour Cloud. I cut the next sized banner out of Baby Pink Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls in the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.

  20. Hello Julia.

    This is such a lovely Card, I think anyone would be so pleased to receive it. Twinkle twinkle I think is my favourite folder and like you I have fallen for the Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Die Set, I love this orientation of the banners. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes
