New Baby.... - Jo Austin

Good evening folks!

It's another late one here before I retire off to Noddy Land for a few hours. Tomorrow I'm up bright and early as I'm off to do a couple of days work at the Craft show at York Racecourse - something new for me, so wish me luck!! 

This last week has seen me down on TV in Peterborough last Friday with some fab sale shows, and also my mega trip straight up to Glasgow the same day. We had a four day show doing workshops with Tonic and a great time was had by all. So lovely to see some familiar faces and some new ones too. We saw some fantastic Kensington handbags being made by male and female crafters alike! 

Anyway, onto tonight, and I thought I would share with you a little make from this last weeks Craftinator shows with the Baby Rococo. I love the new baby dies, they are so gorgeous and make a great statement piece on your cards. On this card, I have used the wordings from one of the dies and the pram from another. I love the old fashioned pram. So sweet.  


I knew I wanted to use these pieces of pale pink gingham and spot paper to create a very delicate baby card, so teamed it up with the matt silver shimmer card to add a little shine, but not too much. I used our circular Essentials set to create the corners and the topper in the centre. The pram was cut from two shades of grey cardstock and layered together to create a shadow. 


I used some patterned paper that had been embossed through the hood of the pram to create some folded fabric and stuck this in place, and then trimmed a piece of scrappy paper to match to fit behind the aperture in the pram. I finished it with a little pink bow and a beady heart. 


The wheels as you can see, I filled in with the leftover sections of the die cut. It was easy to stick it in to the gaps as the shadow was there to hold it in place. 

I added some of the ruby red Nuvo glitter drops to add some details. 

I hope you like the card, I thoroughly enjoyed making it. 

Until next time..
