Baby card for Faith
I really enjoyed making this card, but with that many layers, it took me ages to do. I think if I got used to using sketches that it would help speed things up as I take ages deciding my layout and then my colours etc.
I will be entering this card into the 2nd Phindy's Place challenge. You had to use 1 of her lovely images to make a card or a project and include ribbon. The image I used is called 'Contentment'
I'm not sure how you know what challenges your cards are suitable for, I'll have to suss that out!!
The following was used to make the card;
Pastel pink and pastel green Bazzill card
Pink gingham- Making Memories- Kid's collection
Pastel green paper punched with Martha Stewart heart border punch
Pink ribbons- Avec baby girl collection
White organza ribbon- Create and craft
Frame-Scalloped edge frameabilities-Spellbinder
Sentiment- Deja Views "A babe in your arms with all of it's charms, undeniably from God"
I've used a couple of different ribbons across the card, then I laced the organza ribbon through the frame. I have never tried this before, but I think it's quite effective.
As I have previously mentioned, my daughter-in-law's brother & wife had a new little girl at the weekend and they are calling her Faith. This card will get posted to them very soon.
Thank you again for visiting my blog.
