Two Baby Cards

A happy May Day to those of you in the UK, are any of you planning to dance around the Maypole today I wonder !

Once again I have two more Clipart Fairy cards to show you, this time around they are both baby cards.

I made a bit of a mess when printing out my first card, my hubby had used the printer just before me and left it on the wrong settings, I hadn't realised and went ahead and printed all the bits I needed for my card. When I took them off the printer I realised that they were the wrong colour, more of a peachy pink than the pinky pink they were supposed to be. I was going to re-print them, but I quite liked the colour and remembered that I had some new goodies from Meiflower and there was a gorgeous peachy pink organza ribbon and flowers amongst them so decided to use them anyway.

I folded a piece of A4 card in half to make an A5 tent card then divided the top section into two, one part being square the other a rectangle. I scored and folded the square diagonally to make a twisted easel section, and the rectangle in half to make a straightforward easel section. I then decorated the two sections up, die cut a stopper and added a punched border to the card base. The white scalloped circle is embossed but it doesn't show up too well in the photo.

The colours look much better 'in real life' the ribbon and flowers blend in more with the background, I just couldn't get a decent photo.

My second baby card is a Christening card, I used the same method as the previous one to make up the card, but used a shaper as the topper on the square side, and made a pop up stopper by adding a tab to the bottom of the stopper, cutting a slit into the base background paper, sliding in the tab of the stopper, sticking it down and then fixing the whole thing into place on the base of the easel card. The stopper folds flat for posting and then just pops up to hold the card open.
