New baby washing line with hand coloured background C5 card - Day 183 of my 365 day challenge

New baby washing line with hand coloured background C5 card - Day 183 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Well craft addicts, I am now half way through this year's challenge and I have made this New Baby card - well I made a couple of them and someone preferred the other one!


How I made this card:-

  • I first of all used a mix of purple. blue and yellow inks (Catherine Pooler and Tim Holtz) to colour through the footprint part of the For The Love of Masks Mask - trying to alternate the colours and position of them as I covered it.
  • Whilst that was drying, I then coloured a smaller piece of white stamping card using blues and greens to create sky and grass effect and again let it dry.
  • I then stamped the washing line posts on to the card using Versafine Onyx Black ink on either side of the card and added a line across them using a Fineliner pen.
  • Using the Versafine ink, I then stamped out the baby clothes again  on to some white stamping card and heat set them before colouring them in using a mix of alcohol markers and Zig Clean Color pens.
  • I trimmed around them leaving a white border around the clothes but none around the bootees and attached them to the washing line using a tape pen and foam pads for a couple of them to give some dimension.
  • I edged the panel with a black alcohol marker and stuck it to the front of the C5 white card.
  • Finally, I added the word BABY to the front using some sparkly foam letter shapes.
  • I also added one of the stamped baby gro's and socks to the back of the envelope.

And there you are a card that is fun to make and hopefully would be lovely to receive!
