New Baby Card

This card measures 5ins by 5ins and is made using a white linen effect card.
Not a lot to this card, but I was very apprehensive when I started it, as it was the first card I have agreed to make for anyone in over a year.
Just Arrived. New baby cardThe background paper is actually gift wrap, but as it was  a good quality one it stood the rigours of being mat and layered and the edged with faux stitching.
The embellishment is a Russ keepsake badge, one of a few I found in Home Bargains a couple of years ago ….. for just 25p each (I think they cost about £1.99 now!), so there is the option to remove it if the recipient wants to, because it is only attached it with an adhesive foam pad.
New Baby card. just arrivedThe sentiment is handwritten in my fair hand, again mat and layered on silver mirror card and finally a few matching blue punched hearts fill the empty spaces to bring the card together.
I always look out for bargain badges in my bargain shops, the one I have used here is excellent quality, they are something a bit different on a “lazy” made card but nonetheless are effective.
