New Baby Girl Rocker Card with Fizzy Moon.

Hi Everyone,

How is everyone? Thought I'd just do a quick post. I made this card, us for my neighbour Linda's daughter Charlene, who had a little girl on the11th June. Congratulations to you all. Can you guess which digikits I used?

Did you guess? I used the Spellbinders Grand Big Scalloped circle dies to cut the shapes out of contrasting backing papers from the FM New Baby kit. I always use super smooth card for my images and when I make a rocker card I also print the backing papers on the same card, which is 220gsm,  to give extra strength.

The largest die is used twice, once in plain white 300gsm card, which is scored in half and folded, to form the rocker base, then again in the patterned paper. The next layer is the third largest, which is then mounted with double sided foam.  All the edges were distressed with Tim Holtz spun sugar and faux stitching was added to both layers using a pale pink fine line pen.

There are several images to choose from in the kit, but I thought this one was so cute, especially as Charlene is a new Mum. I can remember when I was a new Mum (just) my baby was never far away from me. I used the crop tool to make some decoupage layers and mounted them with foam pads to add some dimension.

To add the baby's name I used the bunting from FM Playtime. This bunting can be used for any length sentiment, just crop a couple and join them. The letters are also in the digikit. Brooke Anne, what a beautiful name, they were also mounted with foam for dimension. The flowers are from my stash, you can see that tale here. I think I have enough to last my lifetime. I added some glamour dust to the centre of the flowers to add a bit of sparkle.

Some card candy, new baby ribbon in pink and a matching box and the card is done. Charlene and Linda loved it, looks like I may have some new customers, they had no idea I made cards.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for coming by, do come again.
