For a beautiful baby...

Can’t believe I’ve forgotten to post this baby card – baby Grace must surely be walking by now!

This is a for a friend who is currently enjoying her gorgeous new baby girl, Grace Elizabeth - who, I notice from the latest photo, looks just like her! There’s hardly any stamping on this card because the papers do all the work – they’re from the Nursery Suite collection, which is really beautiful (and not just for baby cards!).

I stuck strips of different papers across the card, then die-cut the letters using my beautiful Big Shot and the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet dies from the Mini catalogue. I’ve made quite a few name cards using these dies and was quite sorry when they had to go back to their rightful owner, my downline Alison.
