New Baby Cards

I am back with photos (temporarily!) - I've borrowed a mobile phone to take these two photos of new baby cards.  So apologies if the quality is below par.  The first one developed as I went along and the second one was a design I clearly had in my mind.

The source of the image escapes me - it was a decoupage design, but I used it as a flat image and used Glossy Accents on the wooden part of the crib and on the baby's bottle, Kraft paper printed from selection at Pink Petticoat , buttons ribbon and sentiment from my stash.

Nice and straightforward to make - made the gatefold card using Ultimate Crafters Companion Pro, I distressed 2 card mats, brads ribbon and peeloffs from stash, made the tag using Martha Stewart border punch and Crop-a-Dile.  Image was downloaded so long ago, the designer escapes me!

These were personal cards I've sent myself. The grandparents are not keen on modern images, so I think this cute vintage baby fits the bill.

I rarely use peeloffs nowadays, I think us cardmakers tend to use them so much when first learning how to make cards and then the poor things get frowned upon to some extent once we progress to 'bigger and better' things!  I like how they suit the vintage baby image.

Hope you like.
