New baby card - stork with baby bundle - Day 253 of my 366 day challenge

New baby card - stork with baby bundle - 
Day 253 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So today's card is slightly different in that it is a "New Baby" card using various die cuts that I had in my "stash".

New baby card - stork with baby bundle


To make the background and toppers
  • i first of all took one of the Tonic Studios background dies and cut  it out in red cardstock (not sure which die set it is from unfortunately)
  • I then cut out the next layer which is a Tattered Lace frame in white (again not sure which one it is)
  • I also cut out an oval shape from the "Pin Dots" ovals die set from Tattered Lace in black card.
  • I then cut out the "stork" (again from Tattered Lace) in white card and coloured  it in using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers - "Green LG4", for the bag, "beige EB1" for the bill and legs, "Yellow" for the body and "tan TN3" for the head. I didn't want it to be the traditional blue/pink so have made the stork my own!
To make the card up -
  • I first of all glued the red layer on to a 6" (approx) white linen card using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue - this is a great size as it leaves a very narrow border around it.
  • I then glued the "White" Tattered Lace ornate frame in the centre of the panel again using Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue.
  • The "stork" was then stuck on to the oval frame with Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue and finally attached it to the card using Hunkydory foam pads to give a slight lift off the card.
  • To finish the card off, I added some "Morning Dew" Nuvo Crystal drops to each corner and the "Stork"s eye.
And there you are....a really cute card - that is simple to make and will be on my website soon.  Don't forget you can visit The Handmade Crafts Shop anytime to see what else I have for sale or sign up to my monthly newsletter here
