Card for Christening

Hello and happy Monday! Here is a slimline card I created for a girls Christening.

I used die cut dies by Elizabeth Craft Designs (the hearts, hot air balloons and the label) and a German Tonic Studios die cut die sentiment in the middle. The papers are from my older stash and the little birdies are from Studio Calico back in the day when I subscribed their monthly kits.

The little dots are done with Ranger Liquid Pearls and Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops. The label is adhered with 3D foam to add dimension to the card.

Inside the card there is a pocket for a gift card/money/gold coin (this is a popular tradition here) to be added inside.

The dies I used are sadly retired. But if you want to make a similar card, I am sure there are alternatives available at your favorite store. I will add alternatives to the links – should you be interested.

Have a fabulous day!

Welcome baby girl – card

Hello and happy Friday! Today I am sharing a baby girl card for a change.

I used Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies (the hippo and the circle and scalloped circle dies) to create the focal point for this card. The glitter stickers are from Sassafras (very old own stash) and the paper are also from my well hoarded paper collection :). I die cut the hippo from a pink patterned papar, added a bow from red cardstock and teeth from white paper. I think she is very, very cute!

This is a slimline sized card, so I could play with papers on the background and the card turned out quite sweet with these papers. Around the scalloped circle there are Nuvo Glitter Drops for a tiny additional detail.

I adhered the hippo circle with 3D foam to make it stand out from the card background even more. The ribbon behind it is from my ribbon box. I incorporated lots of older product to this card and I love using up all these favorites of my from back in the day.

With this card I am wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Alles Gute – 50th birthday shaker card

Hello and happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a special 50th birthday card with you. It´ s for a work colleague for her big birthday:

I used a nice flower paper with a pink card base and die cut a circle for the shaker part. The acetate has tiny silver stars on it and for the confetti I used various shapes and colours of Nuvo Confetti.

After that I added white Thickers for the “50” into the middle of the shaker part and decorated the card with paper flowers and a glitter brad. The birthday sentiment is by Klartext stamps. I sure hope she will like the card!

Come back tomorrow to see the second card I created for the same occation ;-).

Good times – card

Hello and happy Tuesday! I have a special project share up for today. A farewell-card for a colleague at work, who will start a new chapter in his life. And as you can see, it has something to do with the sea ;-).

So I created a pop-up card with sea and sailing theme for this purpose. The front of the card has a nice island scenery on it, but when you open the card, you see this:

A lighthouse and a boat sailing the sea. This card will be a part of his sailing themed present and so far has been approved by the colleagues who signed it. So we are hoping he will like the card (and the presents).

I used various Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut dies for creating this card. Also most of the papers on this card are by them too (older collections that are currently not available at their store). Also the stamps are by Elizabeth Craft Designs. The frame on the from of the card is done with a paper by Bo Bunny.

Here you can see the card “IRL”:

I folded the pop-up part myself, but if you want to use die cut dies for that, those are also available at he Elizabeth Craft Designs store (see the product list at the end for all links).

I also needed a second card for the same event and will be sharing that one on Thursday, so be sure to stop by and take a look at a very clean and simple sailing themed card version then.

Take care,

Welcome Baby Boy

Hello and happy Monday! Today I am interrupting the Christmas card share posts with a cute baby boy card.

I was asked to create a baby boy card for work and this is what I came up with.

I´ ve used light blue alpha stickers to create the sentiment and embossing folders to make the polka dot background paper. The ribbon is from my older stash and the hippo is die cut with a Elizabeth Craft Designs die cut die, as are the scalloped and plain circles.

For coloring details on the hippo I´ ve used my Swiss Color colored pencils as well as Neocolor II crayons. On the scallop circle I used liquid pearls to add some detail.

A clean and simple, yet cute baby boy card resulted from that. I really like this tiny hippo die cut die very much and it is so perfect for baby cards! Hope you liked the inspo!!
Take care,
