Magnolia vs Stampavie - Carla's sketch

Carla has done such a brilliant sketch for this week - I can see me using this one over and over! I needed a new baby boy card so, with inspiration from the fabulous Rach who made this card (I was lucky enough to receive it from her for my birthday last month. Thanks for the inspiration sweetie, you really are the best xx) I came up with this for a baby boy. I have used the fab Apron Lace punch from The Hobby House again – I love it!!

See, I'm still decorating the back and the insides lol. I really enjoy finishing the cards off like this and don't think I will ever revert back to not decorating all 4 sides.

The baby shoes stamp I got off Ebay - it's a clear stamp and was just a £1 or so. I’ve used the EK Success Flourish punch that Jill sent me – this has got to be one of the most useful punches I have. Jill is taking pre-orders for them here and has also got some FAB scalloped corner punches listed for pre-order.

Recipe
Magnolia Horse stamped with memento ink and coloured with Prismacolors and a touch of Twinkling H2O's. The sentiment is from a Stampin Up set and is stamped in Brocade Blue ink. The shoes are stamped with Bashful Blue ink (all SU)
The papers are Stampin Up - Bashful Blue Designer Prints
The pompom border is from my local craft shop (think Bazzill do one too though?)
Flower, button and teddy charm is from stash.

Thanks for looking,

  19. Hi Bev

    I love the baby boy card - such detail. It must have taken ages.

    Oh dear - I couldn't cope with decoration all four sides.

    Just the decisions for completing two sides seem to take me a lifetime sometimes lol!

    Will be back soon.

    Love Jules xx
