A card making extravaganza

This card making extravaganza all started in the month before baby Heidi was due to arrive, it happened like this…

  1. I was very pregnant
  2. I had finished work
  3. I was getting bored
  4. Desperately looking for something to help kill the time (and take my mind of the impending birth)
  5. Decided to make some cards to use as thank-you’s when the baby arrived.

Off to the local craft shop I went, in search of some cards (and inspiration)…

Kaiser Craft dragonfly stamp and purple ink pad…

Kaiser Craft green paper card pack…

Kikki K Ingrid gel pens (I used the silver one for the flight path of the dragon fly)…

The completed thank-you card …

and envelope…

Whilst at the shop, I saw these train die cut cards, and couldn’t resist…

Using material at home I sewed a piece onto the inside of the card to fill the space… I tried it with gingham and stripe – I think the gingham looks better…

I had a few comments from friends about how I managed to find the time to make thank-you cards with a new baby – I didn’t… I was very tricky, and made them before Heidi was born!

Cheers,

Bernice
