I was asked by a lady near where I live if I could make a card for her niece who has a premmie baby still in hospital. The wee one was born a month ago and while everything is looking good it is still a stressful time for all the family. Because I loved what Judith Ritter-Österle has done with the Friends and Flowers stamp set this little card sprang to mind.
It’s a compilation of what I had at hand, some retired, some new products, some not Stampin’ Up!. The lady was delighted and really that’s all that matters.
The Whisper White base (21cm x 15cm or 8¼ x 57/8) folded in half. The Pacific Point CS (10cm x 14cm or 4″ x 51/2 ) was embossed with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder then glued to base.
I stamped the petals and baby onto some Whisper White scraps, punched out with matching Festive Flower Builder Punch and coloured in the baby. They were arranged and attached to the frame from Spellbinders Decorative Die Frame one, with sticky dots. Pretty but not one of ours. Then glued to base.
I reverted to the Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio (retired) for the sentiment from A Word for You. After printing I used the frame from Chalk Talk Framelits which was created by running it through the big shot half way, flipping the frame, inserting back into the cut section and cutting the other half.
Inside was this sentiment I had…. just right for this little fighter.
PS Just heard news am a grandmother again, number 9 so another baby card soon.
