Baby Shadow Box Card

Hello bloggers!  Today's video just shows off the Baby Shadow Box die set and some of the fun things you can do with it!  Don't forget you can mix and match the different Shadow Box die elements and accessory sets too.

The finished dimensions are 6 3/4" x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Lovely card Sue, so beautiful.
June hope the Consultant was pleased with you. I bet you enjoyed your craft class.
Tina, many times are they going to mess up Peters appointments, don't they realise how demoralising it is, makes you feel as if no one cares.
Elaine, so glad Andrew was feeling better, he is a trooper.
PP, it sounds as though the Consultant has lots to say, hope it was all helpful.
Sharon, have you seen a doctor yet, you seem to have been struggling for so long. Hope your daughter is feeling a little better today.
It is very cold here this morning, take care and keep warm all. We had a fire evacuation yesterday, had to stand in cold for 15 minutes and started cough off again, as soon as the cold air hits lungs, turned out to be a test.
Hugs to all.

June Smith said...

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, a lovely baby card today, will watch video later when hubby brings my breakfast.

Saw the Consultant yesterday, he was so lovely, he said I was doing well, he was not concerned with the knee bending as that was coming along nicely as was the straightening so he was very pleased, got to see him in 3 months, and got a lovely hug from him as I left, as I said he is a really lovely man. Craft group went well too.

Oh Pam I know what you mean about those fire drills, how well I remember them and also hitting the cold air and coughing, but these things have to be done, hope you are not suffering too much today.

Hugs to Tina, Peter, Elaine, Andrew, PP, Sharon (when do you see your consultant for a check up?) your daughter and anyone else I have forgotten.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Morning Sue. Did you know you'd put a big sloppy smile on my face when you decided to show this sample ? Of course not, but you have. This collection is the kind of set that you could sit ALL day or ALL week and make loads of cards everyone so different everyone as cute as a button as cute as a new baby. I love this New Addition collection of dies Sue, they are my number one favourite of all dies you've designed, and this is why I have to have the new Shadow Box collection you just released. So beautiful and easy to use, so many variations to look forward to. I know I could fill at least half of one large basket of New Addition cards and each basket holds 56 cards ! These Shadow Box collections are wonderful for the likes of me that don't have the wonderful talent of artistic imagination, the ideas just flow as soon as you cut the full set of dies and have all those cute little items looking up at you, one after the other, so absolutely necessary to have in our collection. This is why I've put the new collections way at the top of my birthday/Christmas gift list, as I know thanks to you Sue, the ideas will flow, and my basket over floweth with shadow box cards for babies, tweenagers , those that think they are still tweenagers , dads, brothers, and garden fanatics lol I'm so excited to receive these new dies I can't wait 😊
So thank you for thinking about launching the New Addition dies, and for following them up with the latest collection. I have woken up to the most happiest, cutest card, which has made me sit here like a Cheshire cat lol for that you get the biggest hug of the week and hope you have a great day xx
Can just about see over the steering wheel Pam 😉 xx

CraftySuetoo said...

Good morning Sue. A very cute card and perfect for any baby. I hope Santa brings me one of your shadow box sets!
Pam, I hope that your stand in the cold doesn't make your cough worse. I know that drills have to be done but employers also have a duty of care, when they know that someone has a health issue they could make arrangements for them to be checked off and then wait somewhere warm. June, your consultant sounds lovely, pleased the knee is coming along nicely and that you enjoyed your craft club. Hugs to all. Sue xxx

Sandy G said...

Hi Sue
Thank you for sharing this cutie! Just adorable. I love the little duckies!
Have a great day everyone.

Tina T said...

Hi Sue and crafters all,
Oh what a beauty!!'!!! Absolutely love all the baby dies in this collection. I have made some up as pictures to go round my great niece's bedrooms and everyone who has seen them say how beautiful they are.
Just making the Christmas shadow box and putting the DCWV lights in.
Peter seems to be improving with his medication actually ate and drank more yesterday and it stayed down - hurray!!!!
Also he did a bit of airbrush work with his new compressor.He went to bed at 10pm and is still asleep now.
Pam - hope you did not get to chilled by your fire alarm test yesterday and managed to put your coat on etc.
June Smith - fantastic news from your consultant. Your body only heals at its own rate. Keep up the good work.
Elaine- have you heard any thing about your complaint!
National lottery was good to me last night !!!
I had 2 numbers, 3 numbers and 4 numbers which was a good moral booster.
Love and crafty hugs to all.

Chris Curry said...

Love everything about this card. It would definitely be a card to keep and even frame as a great momento. I have the first shadow box and my ambition is to own all accessories too. Thank you Sue. Xx

Anonymous said...

Oh so sweet, Sue, don't have any babies on the horizon sadly or would be getting these. Love that your pastel cards have that touch of dusky about them, not too pinky blue pretty if you get my drift. As always extra tips on the video - thank you.
Pam, what are they thinking of on such a cold day? A mad and mean lot for sure. Sounds like medieval torture.
Laine - peace and light ha! (and if you believe that......) Calm not always the norm.
Hope you are so beautiful today after a good night's sleep!
Well wishes and hugs to all.

Hi Sue
Your card is so cute, will watch the video later.

Pam,Aww not good for you standing out in the cold , we have fire drills regular here at the flats but now they tell us when it is a drill and we don't have to leave the building. you must look after yourself and try to stay warm now and get your chest better.

June pleased your consultant was happy with you .

Andrew was still a bit yuk yesterday but nothing he can't put up with.

Tina T , Pleased Peter was a lot better, Andrew has heard nothing more as yet .

Sending hugs to all
Stay warm

Hi Sue
Thanks for the great video showcasing the cutest baby card, love your Shadowbox collections. I treated myself to a few new dies, a Black Friday deal buy two get one free, so I got your Art Deco capital alphabet, pierced flags and then the stuffed animals were free. They arrived yesterday so hoping I can play with them tomorrow

Pam how cruel to hold a fire drill on such a cold day
June great news that the consultant was so pleased with your progress

Sending hugs and best wishes to everyone

Lorraine Freeman said...

Hello my friends, Sue, fellow blog visitors. So sorry to have been absent for so long.
I had a wonderful time at Anna Marie's creative weekend. The absolute best retreat I have ever been on.
Since then life has just been busy, my health is holding up so that's great.
Obviously there is no way I can catch up with everyone's news, so I hope all is good.
Beautiful card Sue, lots of lovely little touches.
Sending love n hugs to you all xxx

Unknown said...

To My Wonderful Friend Sue,
I Watched The Wonderful Video, Then Something Else Came Up So I Nearly Forgot
To Place A Comment.
Although Like I've Mentioned Before I Don't Make Baby Cards, But I Do So Love The Shadow Boxes
I Love The Soft Delicate Colour Combination You've Chosen For Your Card, I Loved The Tips
And Technique's Like Going Round The Raised Items With Pencils To Give More Of A Shadow
And The Fabulous Way You Cut Two Storks Then Placed One Set Of Wings Behind The Other To Make
It Look Like The Stork Was In Flight, Very Clever Indeed....
Sue Thank You For Sharing
Take Great Care
Wonderful Warmest Fond Wishes To Colin And Heather
Love And Huge Hugs 🤗 To Yourself Sue
Love From Sam xxx
Hugs To "All" Wilsonettes......

Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. I love this card and the best bit about it is the stork die which I already have (I must remember to get the "It's a Boy" and "It's a Girl" die next time I put in an order as I think the stork would look a bit odd on its own on a card)


barbara macaskill said...

What a darling card! LOVE the adorable stork!! TFS!

Love it. Those little nappy pins are adorable

liz spooner said...

Oh this is gorgeous sue, love the little ducks.xx

Barbara said...

One of my all time favourite cards!!!!
This collection of dies has to be one of the most popular you have made along with the shadow boxes.

fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, beautiful card and the shadow boxes are a clever way of getting a lot on a card without it looking messy. I love all of the New Arrivals collection and at first I just got the Stuffed Animals (really fell in love with them) but then decided to get the Shadow Box swiftly followed by the Little Treasures. I really must get Mr stork so he doesn't feel left out :-)

Pam - I hope you do not suffer any ill effects from your enforced time outdoors.
Tracy - glad you are back among your flowers.
June S - you nust have been behaving yourself to get a hug from the consultant, Well Done!
