New Baby

I'm on a mission to try and use lots of oddments that I've come across whilst clearing my craft area.  This card uses a Lili of the Valley precoloured topper which I'd already die cut and embossed, a sentiment that had been stamped and die cut and a snippet of paper left over from another project.

I trimmed the paper so it was slightly smaller than the front of the card blank before die cutting and embossing the aperture.  I rounded the corners and attached it to the card.  The precoloured topper had already been die cut and embossed so I inlaid it into the frame.  I had previously stamped and die cut several sentiments so I layered two of them and attached them above the baby.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley Art Pad (I'm not sure of the name of the pad - it may have been 'Babies & Toddlers')
     Clearly Besotted 'Modern Calligraphy' stamps and coordinating dies
     Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels One' die
     Kars tan embossing mat
     Mememto Gray Flannel ink
     Snippet of blue patterned paper

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts - Anything Goes
     Crafty Calendar Challenge - Make it Cute
     Love to Craft - Anything Goes
     Moving Along With The Times - New (I've chosen New Baby)

Hi Kath

Sounds like you are on the same mission as me and attempting to clear everywhere of all the "leftovers" we have hanging about.

I can actually see some of my worktops at the moment which can't be bad.

Another great baby card. I think we are going to need a lot of them this year with all the lock-down babies appearing.

Love Jules xx
