Well, apart from some overnight rain, the weather is still wonderful and sunny, and although I still enjoy being out in the sunshine, I feel I can spare a little 'time out' to make a card or two.
We were at a friend Wedding at the weekend and although I did make the card, I did a repeat of the tent card that I did for my son's Wedding Anniversary in April and just changed the sentiment - so not too much to think about there!
Yesterday, being a damp start, was an ideal opportunity to make this card for the House Mouse challenge.
The theme is 'new' and apart from this being a new stamp, its also a new baby! The image is so cute, and although this one is for a girl, I will also be doing one for a boy as my daughters friend is having a baby in the autumn, so she can use either one!
The papers are leftover scraps (just enough to make the card) and I have used a MS embossed scallop punch. Non of my little versa inks seemed the right colour for the sentiment, so I ended up using Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and quickly heat embossed with silver pearl, quite a good match!
I cut the image with the nestabilities Large Scallop Circle, and embossed the edges with a large embossing tool for a more defined line than the embossing mat gives, (I saw this tip on Ikki's Cuttlebug cupboard - this lady is just brill, she has some wonderful ideas and tips for Cuttlebug, Nesties etc.) I then chalked the edges. I don't think you can tell in the photo, but I added glitter flock to his tail, well you've got to have a fluffy tail!
This card also fits in with the challenge at Simon Says, good to do 2 inh 1!
Thanks for looking
