WELCOME BABY

Don't you dare laugh!!!  Who'd thunk I'd ever make a card with a yellow duckie????  Well, my niece had a little boy recently so of course I had to make a card to go along with the book I'm sending.


No card with flowers on it for a little boy - so I went rummaging through my drawer of odds and ends and found that cute little duck sticker.  I did have the die for the sentiment though.  Am taking the Clear and Sheer online card class, so thought I'd give a vellum shaker card a go, even though that hasn't been brought up - but sewing is one of the ways to attach vellum.  First, I rounded the corners and sewed the sides and bottom together - then I die cut a circle from the top (to make it look kind of like a bib), filled it with yellow and blue sequins and then finished up the sewing.  Added the sentiment, duckie and bow - and done!  And it really wasn't all that painful to make a card without flowers!!  By the way, I'm loving this online class - worth every penny!

Thanks for stopping by and love reading your kind comments.

  4. So sweet and cute design, Betty! Sewing is what I never tried on my card yet, I think I should try it. It gives to the card more "handmade" look.
