A baby card combo and some candy

I am so late with my post today - it was our Ben's birthday party and guess who got roped in to do all the face painting (and guess who landed up with the most paint on her - yep ME!!!) I think I enjoyed myself more than the kiddies did - grandma was even boogying to High School Musical and the Hokey Kokey lol. I wonder who was the grown up and who was the kid (rolls eyes!!!).

Anyway, on to today's card - I needed a card for a baby girl so had to ink up this little cutie! How fab is that pram - love it!! I have (loosely) used Dawny P's fabulous sketch on Papertake Weekly, and the card also qualifies for (I think) ASOS (celebration) and Secret Crafter new beginnings challenges.

I have used the Martha Stewart Flourish punch again, this time to make a fancy mat. This is one very useful punch to have, especially when your largest nestie is still too small for the image. I marked the rectangle lightly to get the marks even to punch and four punches later - job done. So easy and really effective I think. Apologies for the bad photo’s the card really is white IRL and not the dingy grey that it’s showing on the photo’s.

  1. That is one cute pram. So different to the normal pram designs you see. And thanks for the tip about making a mat using a punch to shape it. Great idea and a lovely card.

  6. Oh how cute Bev. I love that image, it's just right for a baby card.

    Sounds like a great party...and you must know that any great artist (as you so rightly are) always has the most paint on themselves.

    Take care
