Cards For Baby Emily

Emily is my brothers niece and she is gorgeous! My mum asked me to make a card to give to her for her 1st Christmas, and I have made one for myself to give her.

This one uses nitwits papers and elements from the Joyful Hearts Collection. I used the snowman from the kit and added wire arms and clear gloss on his nose and buttons.


The second one I have used a Sarah Kay stamp called My Sweet Lili, papers from funky fairys lets get traditional kit and Hot Off The Press Cardmakers Christmas Creative Pack. The lettering is from a Sizzix die called Monde de Blonde, and the swirl is from a Sizzix die called Swirly.

This is also my entry for the dutch dare challenge which was to use scalloped edges on your card.

Thank you to Laura who gave me this blog award, I will have to have a think about who to pass it on to.
And the winner of the stickers was Annette AKA Sandra from the docrafts forum so I will send them out ASAP. x
