Baby in the family

Today I have a card that I made for my cousin who has recently become a grandparent for the 4th time. I thought the occasion deserved a card so I made this, it was nice and quick to do too.

The die is a nested doily so it has several sections. I used the outer section to cut off the edge of the card and mounted it on a bright yellow mat.

The little baby and sentiment are from a magazine free gift.

I used the die cut from the central doily as a stencil to do the decoration on the inset (blue) and the envelope (white).

I finished it off with a few tiny little gems that you can see on the close up.

I am sharing this at:

What a superb card!! I love how you've moved the pretty die cut to the card's edge, and I love the combination of that pretty blue and yellow. But how did you ever manage those teeny-tiny gems on top?? Take my hat off to you for that!!

It's a really effective way of using a die Hilary and the two colours work well.
