Welcome Little One
I have put
together a very pretty card today as I went off to a local craft shop and fell
in love with the new dies by Sweet Dixie
I also wanted to
use one of the lovely gingham backing papers that are actually free – yes free,
the papers can be found by clicking here
while you are
there you really do need to be checking out the mega bundles that I use so often
now and if you have an electronic die cutting machine there’s plenty there for
So on to my
As well as
buying a few dies I also bought a few packs of this lovely doubled sided
pearlescent card in pink, pale pink and black.
I used my own
book mega dies by Go Kreate and using the largest size I cut out in the pink
card, then a size smaller cut out the pale pink and a size smaller cut out the
lovely pinky purple gingham backing paper. On the screen the gingham is clearly
pink but I have printed it 3 times and come through the same colour.
I scored down
the centre of all 3 pages, then used the edge of my desk to light bow the
pages. Using wide double sided foam tape I added a piece down the spine of all
3 layers and once they were in place I added a small piece of foam tape in the
centre of the pages to hold the shape.
Using the pink
card I cut out the beautiful pram and rattle using the die by Sweet Dixie
called Pram and Rattle and number SDD053, it cut beautifully and 1st
time too. I had planned on sticking the pram to the gingham card but it just didn’t
look right so I cut the 4th size page using the pale pink card, but
this time I folded it in half and cut 1cm off on the folded edge. I used Cosmic
Shimmer pva glue to stick the pram onto the pale pink page the put to one side
On the other
piece of light pink I stamped Little One in purple Versafine ink and covered
with WOW clear embossing powder and heated up.
The spine of the
card had a length of wide rainbow ribbon stuck down it then a length of
stitched edge grosgrain ribbon on top and secured at the back.
Next I added
double sided tape to the 2 pale pink pages but just along the edge near the
spine, added a square of foam tape to the back and stuck the rattle across the
bottom right hand corner using Cosmic Shimmer pva.
On the left page
I stuck a pair of pretty hand knitted mini booties below the stamped words
using wide double sided tape. Using the same ribbon as I had used on the
booties I threaded apiece through a silver dummy and another piece was used to
tie a bow, I used a tiny 1mm thick sticky pad to hold the ends of the ribbon
and another on top of it to hold the bow.
And that left a
little decoration which was simply 3 pretty pink glitter cluster gems, 1 on the
centre of each wheel and one in the centre of the bow on the pram.
If you like the mini booties and want to know more then please leave a comment or email me
