Charity Card - New Baby

Oh how cute can you make New Baby cards? As cute as you like! Lots of pastel colours, I usually make some blue, some pink and some just pastel for the 'not sure yet ones'!!!
These little prams (donated stash from Di) are just sooooooooooooo cute aren't they. Everything on these cards is freebies so it's all profit to the charity, and my pocket isn't so worn out.

Here's what you need to make these cards:
  • Pink/blue or pastel cardstock for the base
  • Tartan backing paper (freebie from the internet)
  • Peel off corners added
  • Nesties (from donated stash - which is slowly dwindling hoo....)
  • Teddies (digi images are a freebie) coloured with Twinkling H20's as susual, the others are Forever Friends stickers
  • Faux stitching in glitter pens (appropriate colours)
  • Ribbon folded and added to the Nesties to look like a rosette!
  • Sentiment peel offs are matted and layered on the appropriate colour cardstock
  • Hearts and blanket patches are stickers already in my stash

You can really have fun with these cards, I use all sorts of embellies in my stash, just draw the line somewhere, or else they just look cluttered, simple is best.

KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid - is something I always try and remember, don't stick them down until you've looked at them from all angles!

Have fun!
