Baby tag card.

Good afternoon everyone,  welcome to Sharica new follower, thank you for joining my blog..
thank you everyone for the comments you keep leaving, really appreciate  you taking the time to leave  them.

Beautiful sunny day here today, hope you are having the same..

Oyster stamps DT card..using "Little B"  cutting dies and memory box.. will list what I used at the end of the post, all the collections of little B  are  here 

Started with one A4 card.  Using Martha Stewart board...scored long length  @  3"3/4..  3.7/8..    7.5/8.. 7"3/4..  this makes small channels.for added thickness inside your tag card....when folded I trim excess card of the right hand side...first pocket you fold in..(rather than cut my card to size first)...
next score 6" for the fold for the pockets..I folded all score lines . channels and ends used fine line of wet (PVA) glue.. hope this makes sense to you all..

shading around the stork is Aqua..sorry looks grey!!!!!

this is the first fold (excess) trimmed.. this looks more the Aqua colour.

inside the tag card..If it had been a commission keepsake, I would have printed or stamped FIRST for
this style  would make a few keepsakes not just baby themed..

Good afternoon, crafty friends, followers and visitors.  
beautiful day here today, sunny and dry.

This is the cot to go with the card I made posted on Saturday 5th April. for  baby girl..

Used the Arty Farty template..

Rather than do spindles in the cot side`s  I have used spellbinder "Fancy lattice" die, trouble with this is you need to enclose it, so I cut  four cot pieces.
mobile is Memory box  Quinn Flourish,  cute animal`s  and baby stuff are memory box,  Baby text is a Marianne die.


blanket has been embossed with an inked "Cuttlebug"  Baby shower E/F.
