Special Requests

Isn't this the most adorable vintage picture? Perfect for the parents of a new baby boy. Born on Mother's Day. When my sister saw the baby card I posted yesterday  (pictured on the right) she requested one for a boy. It's so much easier to recreate a card then to design a new one.

Baby love is on ivory card stock with tiny blushed pink pearls. Baby Nolan is on white card stock with smoky blue pearls. It's really fun when creating a personalized card. I printed his birth date and his parents name on velum with blue ink and a welcome to the world message. I think the blue satin bow is a nice pop of color. I'll bet it goes in a scrapbook.

I've had several more requests for wedding cards and white on white is the theme. Here I used my new SB dies to do a reverse embossing. I placed the dies cut side down on the card stock layered with the rubber mat and B plate top and bottom. Wow it really does a deeply etched embossing. I cut the same corner pieces to embellish the oval frame, then rounded the corners for the finishing touch. Simple and elegant.

Next up is a one layer card with 5 little pendant cuts  from the Fleur De Lis shapeabilities collection. Satin and pearls inspired by a splitcoast stamper.
Simplicity at it's finest.

The cancer awareness card I posted yesterday is now complete. My sister approved of the sentiment "Embrace Life" to appear on the front and a personal message printed on velum for the inside. I used glossy accents on the framed sentiment for some depth and shine. This card was inspired by another splitcoast stamper. Check it out she made it in 2009. Her card has sewn stitches and a stamped image. I don't have very many stamps so I used die cuts and punches. That's all for today.

I continue to be inspired by all I see out here in blog land and on Pinterest. Be well and I'd love to hear some feed back, so leave a comment and I'll return to visit you.

  1. The boy baby card is simply perfect. I've known baby Nolan's grandmother since the 1970's and his mother since she was a toddler. (Where did those decades go?)

    How life in these United States have been changed by technology - but baby love is a constant and abiding force and fact of Nature.

    Heartfelt thanks go out to Carole's paper studio works for the wonderful result she achieved for this CUSTOM CARD!

    Thanks for helping me to welcome this family's newest member into his waiting world!

    I am WOWED~ and this will be a beautiful gift in and of itself for baby Nolan's family.

    Peace & Plenty!
