Baby Girl card

A friend wanted a baby card with a bit of green, pink & blue but wasn't sure of the sex until today. What a mad rush it was trying to get a card for a baby as I don't do baby cards often & she wanted it by the following morning. It was late in the afternoon, the daylight was going & I was battling to cut straight etc.

Here I did a 13cm lime green card base. I took pink stripey paper & mounted it onto a lime green card measuring 4.5 x 13cm and adhered it on the left hand side of the card base, leaving a 2mm border on the left hand side.

I mounted the pram topper onto light blue then lime green & light blue card.This was mounted onto the card front with a 2cm border on the left.

I glittered baby girl on the right of the card front, added punched out baby bottles & prams and added these along with the socks to the pink stripey paper.

For the inside of the card I cut a piece of green checked 12cm x 12cm paper & mounted this to the inside of the card. I cut a lime green card measuring 5.5cm x 13cm & border punched along both sides. I then mounted the letters b a b y with foam pads & drew wooden pegs to "hang" the letters with.

I showed my friend the card & she was extremely pleased with it, said it was unusual & guaranteed the recipient won't get any 2 cards alike.
