Sweet Bundle Of Joy

Hi bloggers!  Today's offering is one for the new Mom's out there!  I started with a piece of decorative paper from my stash for the background. I cut a multi layered frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles out of blush card and coconut white card.  I added the frame with mounting foam.  Next I cut the rattle in blush card and backed it with blue dusk card and cut the centre of the handle out.  I added a small round treat cup that I had filled with Iced Flake and white micro beads.  I sealed it with acetate and glued it into place in the rattle.   I glued the rattle diagonally into the frame.  I cut the sentiment in blush card and glued it to the upper corner.  I used the border from the set and created a blush bow that I attached to the bottom centre of the frame.  The card was completed with white, blush and blue dusk mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Such a lovely card this morning and I am sure the new mum would treasure a card like this one. I love the details on paper piecing on the rattle and your idea with the bow.
Crafty hugs and well wishes to all.... Wendy

What a precious sample you've given us today, quite adorable Sue. Everything is just gorgeous from your stash to that incredible paper bow you've created, how clever and what a great idea. Cardstock, treat cups and your beautiful inspiration all I need and want now is the die, and I want that sooo bad lol.
Hope your day is a nice day. Hugs xxx

Crewe Trish said...

Hello Sue
That's what I love about your dies they make spectacular cards. Yesterday I had to make an 18th birthday card in a hurry(my mum always reminded of impending birthdays) I used the cocktail glasses and it took me 3/4 hour so thank you Sue much quicker than going to the shops and just think of the money saved.Now what die is next on my list?

This is so cute, Sue.

Good Morning Sue A lovely Baby card. The rattle is really lovely and all the better being a shaker card as well. This will fit nicely into some young mums memory box. A keepsake to look back on for many years. Sending best wishes to everyone. Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds.

GM Sue. Cute card

Donita Naylor said...

Really like that sentiment, and the bow is so clever. I'd probably do it in yellow snd green. A rattle is about the most literal reason to make a shaker card.

Best to all,

Donita

Hello Sie and all
Very cute and clever shaker card and a real keepsake. Love the border bow
Hugs

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, who doesn't like a shaker card and I am sure any new parent would love this one. I think the bow made from a border is very clever but as it is hanging off the edge it would be difficult to post without spoiling it, probably one for a hand delivery only.

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love the design of the card, but not too sure about the colour combination of blue and blush. Having said that, it might have just come across a bit odd on the laptop screen.
