Baby basket

I haven’t made a baby card for a while so I thought I’d give this stamp another airing.   I wanted to make it girly and frilly, so I used different shades of pink and added lace, ribbon and fancy borders.   I had almost finished the card when we heard that one of our nephews had become a father – to a baby boy.   So I guess I’ll be making another baby card very soon – in blue this time!!

???????????????????????????????

What I used –

Image – Balloon basket from LOTV – coloured with Promarkers    Sentiment and small sentiment tags also by LOTV

Paper by Nitwits     White card embossed with a chain mail embossing folder

Dies – Spellbinders decorative oval, Magnolia hearts and flowers border and small hearts from the La La Land Heart border

Lace and ribbon from my stash

  1. This is the most beautiful baby card Alison .The embossing gives it a feeling of comfort and the border and edge of the die cut make it really decorative . It is a lovely image and you have used just the right shades of pink to set it off well.
