You all know i love vintage!! This week on City Crafter's Challenge the theme was BABY, BUTTONS & BOWS!! I Just had to do it vintaged..lol!! I cant help myself...
I actually used a very heavy cardstock for the base so i couldn't get it to fold naturally, hence, what i have here is 2 peices the same size and have holes punched through them . I used the black ribbon to thread through the holes and made the bows.. It will make a perfect card for a baby boy and subsequently it can be taken apart and used in a mini... I think that would be great..
I just love this baby image dont you? I decided to do a bit of paper piecing.. So i had 4 sets of the image and cut them up. I shaped them with my embossing tool and used dimensionals to make them pop.. As you can see in this pic all the layers of the baby..
The pp is a lovely pale blue and you can see its a bit crinkled and distressed well it was that way. i inked the edges and adhered them. I used some really lovely black cotton lace and added the white ribbon.. The button is actually a vintage button so its faded and all lovely blue that went perfectly with the color scheme of the card..
I added some white lace through the button hole and used a pin.. I was pressed for time or i would have luved too add a lil charm to the safety pin.. doesn't it luk so vintage!! I bout a set of 10 in both silver and black just for Rs.10!!
Hence i am entering this card for
So, i hope you like my card!! Enjoy!!
