With three nieces all due within a month of each other, I have several baby shower cards to make. They are all due late January-February! The first baby shower was this weekend, so I got busy and created this card using Gift from Heaven Tilda. I decided to try a criss cross card again, and use the insert for a gift card holder.
Here is what I came up with…
And another look…
I just purchased the Curved Borders Two from Spellbinders. I saw a card with this die cut and just had to have it! I think it adds a lot to the top of the pull out. Love it! I had purchased the paper when I first started making cards, but had never used it. It is not from a paper pad, it is a single sheet that I had purchased at JoAnn Fabrics.
A look at the card with the insert. . .
I used Delivery from Heaven on the inside of the card with a stamp that I had purchased some time ago. I thought it added to the card. I colored the images with my Copic markers. I cut out the image and popped it up using dimensions. I used a Spellbinder die to cut out Tilda and used some ink from Stampin Up to the background.
A close up of the images. .
I also made an envelope to fit. When I made the criss cross card, I scored the sides twice, 1/8 inch apart to make sure that the gift card I attached would not get caught when the inside was slid up and down. I had cut an extra baby carriage and added it to the envelope.
One final look…
