Today I’ve the card I made to celebrate the arrival of my latest Great Niece …. Clover Nicole Elizabeth.
I used the lovely rabbit stamps for the focal image. I then created the background by brayering ink and then adding glimmer paste through the flower stencil from Claritystamps.
Love this gentle card.
So welcome to the world gorgeous little girl and congratulations to my lovely niece, her partner and Clovers big brother’s Finlay, George and Jax.
I spotted this cuddly rabbit layered stamping set in the new catalogue and knew I had to have it for making baby cards. So I had a play.
First lesson … use the right kind of card for the best results… This mixed media cardstock I was playing on is not the best card for stamping… Oh well I decided to persevere.
Second lesson… choose the right colours or your cuddly starts looking evil!
The top left got turned over so I could create a grey one instead… much less scary!
Make sure you line up your stamps properly or the eyes go wonky like the bottom one!
So once I had the best five I could do I ended up with these cards.
All of them on linen effect card blanks a6 size and using the same set of rounded rectangle stitched dies and the same sentiment stamp I have had for ages.
On each of them I made the cards a little different by changing the design or adding little details in the background.
Love how these came out.
