"It's a girl" rocker card for a new baby.

Hi Guys, hope you're all well and welcome to my blog.

It's another miserable, rainy day, but I'm not letting it dampen my spirits. That's because I pick my camper up tomorrow. Anyway, thought I'd post today's card while I have the chance, I'm going to be gadding about for a few weeks, rain or no rain.

My sister asked me to do a new baby card that would survive going through the post. That meant I had to resist making it too bulky and three dimensional. I think I satisfied the brief, while managing to make it cute.

The card body is a rocker, made with the spellbinder grand large scallop die. I used white linen 240gsm for the folded layer. I used clipart fairy backing papers for the other layers, printed on 220gsm supersmooth card, to give support.The topper is again clipart fairy, from the 'It's a girl' range. Isn't it cute. All the layers are glittered with glamour dust

The ribbon is from a local flower auction, I get most of my ribbon from there, it's great value. A  cardart tag sentiment and a couple of beaded hearts from my stash to finish.

I added a personalised verse to the back and left a space for my sis to sign the card. Hope she likes it.
