Slowly does it!
Here's a card (above) that I made for a newborn baby girl recently. Hard to believe that her Mum (Sam) used to come over on Saturdays to 'play' at anything crafty when she was little herself.
The card is an easel card - one of my current favourites. Background papers are by Making Memories, scalloped ovals from Craftwork Cards, pram embellishment (which I stuck some gems on to sparkle up the wheels) from Craftsite. Prima flowers, ribbon and lace are from my stash (it's much cheaper to toddle into a local haberdashery shop and buy their pre-cut cheap bundles of lace BTW). Charms, spacer and brad are from The Hobby House - the sentiment is stamped. The easel is propped up on a pink 'card candy' (how did I survive without Card Candy?!) - from Craftwork Cards. I often use buttons instead with organza ribon knotted through the holes - just use a doubled piece of thread to feed the ribbon through.
If I can, I'll try to include just what I've used on cards and where it came from. Some of my favourite blogs do this and it does cut out ages searching for things....all time which could be spent on cardmaking instead huh?!
