First of all, I am not a very techie person, and computer knowledge is definitely not my strongest gift. And second of all....my crafty talents are far exceeded by others out there! That being said I love cardmaking and at times can be found working on the occasional scrapbook page!
Last weekend I attended a local crop and decided to spend the weekend relieving stress by making cards. The first card I knew I needed to complete was for my hairdresser. At the end of March she had a baby girl...her first, and what better way to say congratulations than with a handmade card tucked into the gift!
Now I absolutely love vintage themed cards and decided to run with it when I found some awesome "Bundle of Joy" diecuts made by Kaisercraft. After all, who doesn't love old style carriages, cherubs, etc.? So I set to work with several of the diecuts included in the package, some washi tape (unknown source...sorry), some vintage style paper made by Graphic 45 and some odds n ends buttons. I also broke out the Distress Stickles (Scattered Straw) by Ranger just to give the card a hint of shimmer. Stamp'n Up ink in Close to Cocoa was what I used to distress & darken the edges of the card to make it appear more aged. And to give it a softer baby like feel, I used a Stamp'n Up Doily Die which I cut in my BigShot! Layer it all together and here's a close up of the final product!
