Welcome - thanks for calling by again.
I have had the pleasure of making cards for three wee girls who have been born in the last month.
This was the first of the cards, and I gained my inspiration from a blog I follow, and the artist was good enough to supply a template - unfortunately I cannot remember who, and their name was not on the template. What I did learn from her was to use an oval spellbinders die to cut the 'leg' edge.
The collar was cut using a Spellbinders Die, and pearls added for decoration, and the lace was a scrap I had on hand.
The sentiment was initially stamped using white ink, but that was not distinct enough, so I re-stamped and embossed it. Although I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig, I was slightly off, so there is a shadow effect.
The next onsie was cut using white card, and the edges sponged.
After cutting the 'collar' portion, I sponged the edge whilst it was still in the die. After stamping the sentiment I added bling to finish the card.
The final card was again cut using a white base and sponged with pink.
The collar was cut from a dp that has a slight sparkle in it, so I also added sparkle to the paper lace I edged the sleeves and legs with. The lace was originally white, and I added colour by running the lace over the ink pad.
