Welcome Baby

Hello friends,

Happy New Year to all my followers and visitors. Your visits and comments during 2014 are greatly appreciated and never once taken for granted. Thank you so much for sharing my passion and I wish you all good health, peace and fulfillment in the coming year.

Today I am sharing a baby card I made for a friend’s neighbour who was blessed with a baby girl. I used one of my favourite color combo’s – green and pink – and did some paper piecing for the Marianne Design Creatables vintage pram die cut. Some fancy buttons, a cheerful bunting, bows and Prima roses were added as embellishments. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.

    Starting off 2015 with one of the most beautiful baby cards I’ve ever seen. The pram die is stunning with the beautiful flower paper and buttons. The inside is perfect and as much love went into it as is on it. Have a blessed and wonderful 2015. You’ve sure created another masterpiece here.

    Such a beautiful card! I love this color combo, too, and since I need to make some more baby cards, you’ve inspired me with this gorgeous creation to use it again.

    Dis pragtig Amelia!
    Die pienk en groen is so vars en perfek vir die nuweling!

    My sussie het so n speelgoed wa gehad en ek was altyd so jaloers daarop! Ek (die kleinsus) mag nooit my poppe daarin gestoot het nie!

    Hoop jou jaar is sommer voorspoedig en baie kreatief!

    Hi, Amelia!!! Wat ‘n skattige kaartjie vir ‘n nuwe klein aankomelintjie!!!! Ek is mal oor daai lieflike outydse stootwaentjie – dit laat dink my aan die dae toe ek nog tyd gehad het om te lees en die boeke wat in die vorige eeus afgespeel het, so geniet het!!!! Die pragtige knopies en rosies is sooo skattig en ek hou van die pragtige raam agter die stootwaentjie. Ek hou ook baie van die vrolike pienk baniertjie en die prettige groen strikkies!!! Vir seker gaan jou vriendin en die nuwe mamma mal wees oor hierdie pragtige kaartjie!!

    Pink and green look so pretty together, especially on a baby card. I love all the little details you put into this project, especially how you decorated the inside and those green bows on the outside!
