So Loved From The First Moment

måndag 21 maj 2012

Hello, and welcome back friends!
I hope you all had a great weekend. Here in Sweden it has been extra-long with Holidays, and all our children have been visiting, so it has not been so much time for crafting.
But my daughter wanted a card for a little girl who was born about a month ago, and when I did this to welcome little Molly.

I used one old Penny Black stamp, colored it with Copics and then I added Glossy Accents on the hearts.

After I cut and embossed the image, I stitched it on a Spellbinders Beaded Ovals die cut.

I took a small envelope and embossed it with Diamond & Stars Impressabilities, then I sponged it with Distress Vintage Photo Ink.
I made the sentiment by stamping velcome direct on the envelope and cut out the letters to the name from one Pion design paper and glued it on black CS.

A couple of cute kittens from a Pion Design paper were painted with Picket Feance Crackle Paint on the edges, and then I adhered it together with the envelope to a Pinkpaislee Sweetness paper.

A wrinkled pink ribbon and a simple white cotton band gave a comfortable soft feel to the card I thought.
A button was tied over the bow with embroidery thread. The card was finished of with Petaloo flowers , some rhinestones and pieces from one Memorybox die cut.
Thank you for reading this far, and thanks so much for stopping by!
Hugs, Birgit
