Baby Girls

Happy Friday! Where does the time go? Hope you've all had a good week.My husband's work colleague had a little girl this week,and I was asked to make a card for the team to send. Thought I had a few days to make it, but at 10 last night,hubby asked if I had made it as some of the guys would be out of the office next week!
Wrap it Up is a cricut cart that I really wanted and sent to the States to get(as the new carts nearly always take longer to be available in the UK),but have barely used. Hangs head in shame! So for a challenge I did a few days ago,I used the fence cut. Since it was still in my machine I looked to see if there was anything suitable for a baby card.....and there's lots.This is what I came up with.....

It is a 8x8" card,which is pretty big for me.

Apologies for the photo quality but it was still dark this morning when I took the photos before hubby went to work! Double click on them for more detail. I took a side on view to try and show the dimension.
I am entering this card into Cricut Chaos Cartridge Challenge  #13 at Two Scraptastic Gals  - use either Wrap it Up or Storybook.

Card Recipe
DCWV papers,inked and sewn.

My cousin is about to have a little girl anyday now,so today I made a smaller(5x5"),similar card ready.

 Think this one shows the colours better as picture was taken in daylight!! Lol.
Have a great weekend,thanks for looking in.x

  3. Wow 8x8... that is pretty big! LOL But I'm sure it will be well received.... it's a lovely card! :o)

  4. Wow - beautiful card. My daughter is expecting a baby in Sept and I know it was awhile ago that you made this card but was hoping you could tell me what stitch you used? I haven't stitched on cards yet but so want to give it a try! Thanks in advance... Melinda Strange
