A baby card for one of my dearest friends

A baby card for one of my dearest friends

One of my bestest friends had a brand new baby called Cara which is Irish for friend, so I had to make her a very special card for her first born. My friend loves simple but elegant (if you look back I also made her wedding invites) and I love the simplicity of word cards so I thought I'd have a go on my cameo with a little help from my FB friends and youtube. I found making this just as challenging as any other cards I have made as I've had to get a handle on how the software works. I really think she'll like it.

without the flash

I cut the glitter card with my cameo, it took awhile to workout how to download the font to my computer and then create the image I wanted, but after lots of trial and error I got there and I just know my friend will love it, and I love my cameo, especially now that I can create my own unique cuts. 

I added the cut image onto onto some cream card, added a crochet flower (a lovely gift from Wendy in our craft swap) and a button. My friends Mother passed away when she was a teenager and a couple of years ago my she gave me her Mothers button jar, although all the button got mixed up I still like to think this may have been one of hers. x

The flash really highlights the glitter
