Happy Wednesday, everyone!
In the middle of this winter season, it is nice to think of something but snow & cold. And I can't think of anything more wonderful than welcoming a new baby to the world! One of our Dies R Us "family" just welcomed a new baby a few weeks ago & this was the card I sent. Since they didn't know ahead of time whether it was going to be a boy or a girl, I kept to generic colors suitable for either. Here is the card I sent.
I used the following dies on this sweet card: Memory Box Stitched Scalloped Circles (currently out of stock), Sue Wilson Italian Collection-Umbria and Marianne Designs Baby Buggy. Although we don't carry Marianne Designs dies as part of our regular stock at this time, we do offer them when we have our special European Die sales, so be sure you are signed up to receive our news letters! You don't want to miss any of our fantastic sales & special events!!
If you love the lacy look of this card and want to know how to duplicate it, it is very simple. I began by cutting a 5 1/2 inch card. Lay your Umbria die (or die of your choice) on top of the folded card, leaving the die hanging off the fold just enough to be sure parts of your die will still leave the fold intact. Once you cut your folded card, cut another Umbria die (or die of your choice) and glue that to the front of your folded card. This will cover the top edge & provide you with a beautiful card front.
Be sure to check out the fantastic store! I can't think of anywhere I enjoy shopping more than there! There is so much being added that you can't keep up with all the goodies!
Don't forget our Dies R Us blogs as well!
See you next week, everyone! Create something wonderful this week! It's the best way to brighten your day!
