I feel a bit sleepy now, one of our friends is about to go on Maternity leave so we all went out for a Curry for lunch and I now feel very full and very sleepy (but at least I won’t have to cook tea later!). I thought I would share the card I made for our friend, it’s not strictly a new baby card it’s more a good luck and hope everything goes well with the labour….but I didn’t think that would make a very good title for a post, lol.
I’ve done a few crafty cheats on this card…..well it would be nice to own every punch, die, etc, etc, that I want (need!) but it’s not always possible. I’ve seen a very nice Photo Corner punch used on a lot of cards so I made mine by cutting a square, punching a circle in the centre and then cutting in half diagonally…
The other little trick I’ve used is I don’t have a fancy rolled flower die so I made mine by punching a circle, cutting it into a spiral with some scissors and then rolling, I think it looks quite effective even if I do say so myself…
Well enough waffle I have more holiday prep to get done.
