Special Moments

Pin It

Another card i made for the same baby shower. This one was inspired from Brenda a very talented lady from the COC forum. I started to IF(iris fold) the pattern but got so side tracked with the cut out.
I used my emboss folder to give her dress more dimension giving the illusion of the shape of the baby inside and it just happened that the pattern also matched the cuff of her sleve and neckline. One advantage with the cuttlebug emboss folders is you can see through the folders and place your paper where you want. I also inked around the edges etc.
The flowers and leaves are a cuttlebug die. The word verse took on a different twist ive not tried before. As always you dont have just the right verse or wording for your card so i hunted around my stamps and found one from Hero Arts that almost fit. then just inked up the top and bottom words leaving out the word Bouquet and stamped this first.Then using the word experience from See-D's stamp set (my set is called A Word or Two) i simply stamped this into the space that i'd left and I have a whole new verse stamp cool hey! i think it looked great in a different font also it puts more meaning into that word.


Sorry i cant share the the pattern for copyright but thanks Brenda im really pleased with how this card turned out and it was very well recived at the baby shower.



This is the verse i wrote in the card and
a last thought for you today

Gods ways are as mysterious as the pathwayof the wind,
The manner in which a human spirit is infused
into the little body of a baby while it is still
in its mothers womb.
Ecclesiastes 11:5
