Last week, our thoughtful, heart-as-big-as Everest, wonderful Bev welcomed her 19th grandchild into her life: a little girl, Avery Mae. She is, as Bev noted, absolutely gorgeous, and I’ll wait while you go see for yourself….See, I told you so!
In honour of Miss Avery, I decided to try my hand at a baby card. I think I made a couple baby cards back in my *early* crafting days (uh, yeah…that would be about 11 3/4 months ago….), relying on journaling cards cut from 12 X 12 sheets (I hadn’t fully realized the full spectrum of card-making goodies – and amazing people - yet…), so this recent endeavour sees me a bit nervous. Once I had my *baby girl* theme decided, the next step was finding a sketch: Lisa Arana’s Wanna Sketch #9 fit the bill.
Of course, I had to ‘twist and turn’ it a bit to use some of my NUBS – a mini file folder die (MCT) and baby die (SSS) – in place of a tag, as well as create an “inside” that I think is kind of cute.
Welcome, sweet baby; Welcome Sweet Avery Mae…
The "inside' that has me all giddy is the wee file folder that can be dual-purposed: use it like a file folder, flip it open and write a wee note inside. Alternatively, glue up the side, and you have a cute envelope to slide in a gift card or a note (maybe with baby's birth details, or the meaning of her/his name...).
Hope you like this, Grandma Bev, and hope Avery does too! What a wonderful family she's been born into and with your influence and encouragement, she's sure to be a creative young lass!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit adds sparkle to my day!
