Baby Boy Card

I'm back in business, my amazing boyfriend whisked me off for a romantic few days away to get away from and forget everything for a while. We went to Disneyland Paris, and my goodness it was COLD. It was so good to get away, I've been getting cabin fever of late!

Anyway, I came home to an order for a new baby card for a friend of my sister's, so I got stuck straight into that.

This is what I came up with :) I used an A5 card blank, when I bought them first they seemed way too big! But I've used a few of them and I'm getting used to them now :) the checkered paper is from the papermania capsule collection, the plain blue paper behind the bear is from a FF card kit and the white lacy border I was given by a very nice lady as I don't have my own die-cutter yet.

I'm pretty happy with my bows hehe! I couldn't tie them for ages but this one worked out ok I think. 

I used a Forever Friends decoupage from the Hugs and Cuddles decoupage pack, the little birds were soo fiddly for me! But worth it in the end I think. 

I printed this off on the computer because it was requested as a personalised card. I added some gems and done :) 

I'd like to enter this card into:


  1. Aww this is really sweet! The FF bear is SO cute. I love the decoupage - those birds must have been tricky to cut out but they do look fab on the mobile! Gorgeous paper and I love that it's personalised too. The bow is perfect!
