Ickle Baby cards

Posted in Cards tagged , , at 2:12 pm by bejewelledcreations

Aww, there’s something so sweet about baby cards. Obviously the soft colours are so pretty, but I just LOVE seeing and making baby cards – I think it’s the anticipation of seeing the new little someone (and hopefully having a little cuddle!) and the joy that surrounds the new baby… so adorable!

Here is a baby card that I made recently for my samples and also two mini cards that could be used as Gift tags/cards for baby gifts. I’ve used the Nursery Necessities stamp set.

Cardstock is Soft Subtles (the Barely Banana colour has completely washed-out in this photo – sorry!) ; Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana. I have coloured the rubber stamp with Markers prior to stamping with Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy and Real Red. I’ve used the VersaMark pad for the Jumbo wheel; Nursery Letters. Add some double stitched Grosgrain ribbon and you’re done!

I’m really enjoying the Soft Subtles colour range of cardstock, inks and papers – I never really thought that I cared much for the range, but they’re so delicate and beautiful for feminine cards as well as the regular baby styles.
