WELCOME LITTLE ONE
Over at the Cuttlebugspot this week Nilda asked us to make something vintage.
I found a gorgeous vintage baby image which is from Peggy loves Vintage New Babies vol 1 and just had to use it!
For my card I used DCWV paper from the Luxury stack then cut an oval in cream with my Nellies Diecutter (they're a bit like nesties but made by a Dutch designer) and cuttled with CB folder Swiss Dots. I tied a cream satin bow behind the oval and computer generated the sentiment using font LD elegance and added two ribbon roses in cream. I printed the baby in a rose image on glossy photopaper 4 times and cut and layered it using pop dots for dimension.
I then decided to have a go at making a pair of little baby shoes and found a free SVG file at Laura's blog The Alliance Trader. Thank you Laura the file cut like a dream on my Cricut! I used SCAL to cut the 2 little shoes in pink pearlescent card and cuttled again with Swiss Dots CB folder. I added a cream ribbon rose to each for the shoe 'buckle' and flat back pearls around the bottom of the shoes. I'm really pleased with how these turned out and will certainly be doing more in the future!
