Hello creative friends! Surprise! It’s cards 😀
I’m so happy to be sharing my newest Truly Grateful designs at Paige’s blog today. Inspiration came from three sweet and dear friends, who’ve all become first time mommy’s this year. Each card measures 6×6, two are top folding and one is a box card that folds flat for mailing.
For these two cards, I’ve used Paige’s Baby Animals cut file. Both the Teddy Bear and Bunny were chain stitched with white embroidery floss to add texture. Their little noses are upside down hearts! Cute hey?
Did you notice the fringed ‘grass’ on the bunny card? This bunny is hopping through a flower garden with a very special greeting. I think a little birdie is chirping along with him.
I love adding glitter borders for that extra sparkle. I simply add double sided tape around the edge and sprinkle with fine glitter.
The pretty heart filled with sequins was stitched before assembling. Gold is the common element in many of my projects and these cards are not an exception. I love that each layer is a unique pattern of paper but it still all coordinates beautifully. That’s the magic of Paige Taylor Evans collections for Pink Paislee. With so many elements to choose from, no two projects will ever be alike.
Does the technique on my final card look familiar to you? Paige often fills open letters with pretty elements, like flowers and leaves. This cut file by Paige is, ‘Baby #300588’. The jewel coloured leaves were fussy cut from the 6×8 paper pad. They’re joined by gold ones I punched out of glitter paper.
I couldn’t decide on what colour of thread I should use, so I used them all 😀 How cute are the puffy stickers in this collection? I was saving this bunny for something special. I think it’s perfect for this card.
