Even more Forever Friends Christmas Cards








Here is another batch of Forever Friends Christmas cards. I absolutely love these images and the QVC TSV was one of my best buys! I made up all the decoupage/pyramage toppers over a few nights and then at the weekend I finally got around to making up the cards by using papers from my stash.

Baby Girl



Last weekend I was asked to make two baby girl cards, one for a daughter and the other for a granddaughter. For some reason, I always find baby cards one of the hardest to make! Why that is, I haven't a clue! So, when I was faced with the prospect of having to make two cards, my first reaction was to panic!!

But, I looked through my craft "stash" and found the Forever Friends topper and the panic slipped away! I mounted pink/white checked paper on to pink Bazzill cardstock for the background and then did the same thing with a smaller square where I stuck the topper on. The greeting was computer generated.

The second card I found some pink spot paper from my stash and again mounted it onto pink Bazzill cardstock and cut a pink scalloped circle from my nestabilities then stamped the Penny Black image "Naptime" (I think that's what it is called) onto a circle (also cut from nestabilities) and coloured it in using watercolour pencils. Once again the sentiment was computer generated.
