Baby Bunny

Soooo, now that I am finding some time to craft again, I am on a bit of a roll, and today I would like to share with you a card I made this morning before sitting down to some more sewing.  This is for a colleague at work, Ross, who's wife recently gave birth to a baby girl and this card will be from everyone, so I made it an 8x8 card, to give everyone room  to sign it.

To make this card, I used the sketch over at The Sweetest Thing and a large LOTV mini masterpiece.  I must start to be careful with my collection of these as I am running out and I can't get anymore :-(  I love the little bunny on this one and think that it makes a great image for new baby card.  I layered this onto some gauze, which I love using (when I remember that I have it that is!).  I think that it immediately adds a shabby chic look to a card.

The papers are also all LOTV, from the bear necessities pad.

I stitched all my layers together - I had pink cotton already in my machine, do though why not.  It also ties in with the faux stitching on the paper I used to make the banner along the bottom.

After putting the sketch together, I started to decorate.  This was pretty simple.  I stamped a 'new baby sentiment' in the top right hand corner using brushed corduroy distress ink.  I then used victorian velvet distress ink to stamp a little butterfly underneath to match the main image.  This is a little bit hidden by some gauze, but I think that adds to the shabby chic look.

I then added a little white button in each of the remaining corners.  When looking in my button jar for these, I found a little pink heart button, which I added to the top left-hand corner of the image.  Finally, I cut out a little heart from the left over scrap of paper from the banner and added this to the bottom right-hand corner of the image.

I hope everyone at work likes it, and I hope even more that Ross and his wife like it.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Happy Crafting!

  1. Hi Holly, first of all let me start out with my DT comment: Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter Challenge this week. Now, to my own personal comments to you: This is a gorgeous baby card. I love the layout...and truthfully, your sewing is remarkable. It's just great! I think paper piecing the wings on the butterfly is what makes this card just grab my's a GREAT idea on a butterfly that size and gives the card dimension and more color. Stamping on the DP is a great idea and gave the paper more "oomph", too. The cheesecloth gives this card a 'soft' look, too. Love your use of the 4 buttons, too. This card is just so pretty and sweet. Great card. Hugs, Gail
