A Baby Card
I have a really huge baby card to share. This is a card made for a work colleague who is due in just under 5 weeks time. I'll take you through my thought processes for making this A4 card. I folded a white cardstock and also a kraft one (I thought white will go better for a baby card). I then took out the first 6x6 pad I saw which is perfect for a baby card. I then tear off various patterned papers from the pad and started to group the solid colours together and the small patterned papers together. The obvious die of choice is of course my new Paper Smooches Onesie die .... but it looks so small on a big A4 card. Then I thought I could make a whole lot of different patterned Onesies and scatter them on the card.. so I cut out about 4 different patterns and spread them on the card... still looked too small. I then got the solid patterned paper and cut out 'Baby' and grouped the onesie vertically with an alphabet on each one. Still not right. Back to square one, and I pulled out the Lil Inkers stitched squares and cut out four (they look like baby blocks). The 'Baby' got cut again on PP with adhesive at the back and layered onto 2 layers of cardstock. The result can be seen below (looked better on kraft than white card base).. And guess what? I have 3 more A4 cards to make for work colleagues leaving next week!!
