An unusual request - A Lilac baby girl card
My friend Rachel has had me to standby to make card for her sister on the birth of her baby, they did not know what they were having but if it was a girl Rachel wanted no pink on the card as her sister hates the colour pink. The baby arrived on Friday, the day before my own daughter Freya's birthday so I cracked on with a card for her.
Hopefully she will love this card as no pink! I am sure it is likely to be the only baby girl card she gets with absolutely no pink on it at all.
I have used my Bookatrix board to emboss the shape around the edges and made a three layer open book style card, the three layers are pearlescent purple card, silver card and pearlescent lilac card on the top. I have gone round the edges with silver link peel offs. The ribbon down the centre is lilac with silver edging, which I bought from Hobbycraft, I can't remember where I bought the lovely lilac with white dot organza ribbon from but I liked it and had to have it at the time lol. I made 6 bows with the ribbon and stuck onto each corner with glue dots and 2 in the centre.
I computer generated the message on the right and edged with silver line peel offs and added a sizzix die cut pram on the left with a little baby dressed in gingham in the pram, then added another bow in the centre.
I made a box to them to keep the keepsake card in, wrapped the card in lilac tissue paper and sent it off yesterday. I am hoping Rachel will receive it tomorrow.
