Morning and we have a new ATG/Embellish at Artistic Inspirations
and we are sponsored by Colour of Love
I had a request for a non-religious naming day card -NOW- I have made baby cards/Christening cards galore with no problem-but this one caused me such a headache???
Whether it was the fact it wasn't a Christening card I have no idea but this card was my actual 4th attempt after two weeks of deliberating what to do--finally I resorted to Google and Pinterest and bingo-just make a baby card and add the appropriate sentiment-now how simple is that??? Well obviously not!!!
I decided on the image Georgie Giraffe
distress inked round the edges-that was too dark-print out again and rethink the layout-added ribbon and was just about to add the bow when I realised the sheer ribbon---which was stuck down at this point changed colour when I moved from the desk to near the window and nowhere near matched,found some more hidden at bottom of ribbon boxand as the ribbon went round card I had to glue some on narrow card and stick on the top.
Image was coloured with promarkers and added glossy accents,I embossed the background with a Tattered Lace EF,dies from Marianne and spellbinders/balloon die was a gift so no idea of make(Thank you Lisa)ribbon and button from stash and sentiment was computer generated in Dafont.
