Bunnies,babies,bunting & balloons - Victoria Dalziel

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog ,today I am sharing a couple of cards created for Tonic Studios using the Silhouette die sets - Babies,Bunting,,Balloons & Bunnies such a cute die .

Materials used :-
Silhouette Babies,Bunting,Balloons & Bunnies die set
Base card stock 280gsm
Basic scalloped and straight edge oval layering dies
Rococo Petite- layered cloud die set
Fuschia Pink craft perfect
Blossom pink craft perfect
Oyster grey craft perfect
Bright White craft perfect
New Baby sentiment
Cloud dies from 
Organza pink ribbon


This card is created from a card stock 280gsm and it's just a matter of score lines really then a little mat and layering you will need a score board or a scoring tool on a paper trimmer and you will be scoring on the short side mark with a pencil at 1 1/2" score at 3" ,4 1/2",7 1/2", 9" and mark at 10 1/2" then down each side mark at 3 1/2" then with a ruler mark from the 3 1/2" at the side to the 1 1/2" mark at the top do this on each corner and trim the corners off you will also need to put some extra score lines in as can be seen bin the photos below to show.
This is what it should look like with all the score lines in place you just need to trim the corners off.
Score lines go across at an angle from top 1 1/2" down to 4 1/2" and again back the other way and repeat at the oposite end.

You can have the card fold this way or the opposite it's up to you

This just gives you another style of card




The card then has some mats added in pinks glued flat to so the card will fold up I wouldn't use anything more than a 280gm card as it will have a tenancy of cracking along the fold lines, once all the score lines are in place you need to go over all the folds with a bone folder to achieve a lovely clean crisp finish.
The baby outfit is cut in Blossom pink craft perfect for the base layer and then the detail Die is cut with bright white craft perfect card then cut the detail out in the fuchsia pink craft perfect card stock and snip the detail out and layer on top of the white detail layer you will then need to die cut the bunny with Grey card stock snip out and back the bunny on a darker grey card and cut free hand with scissors this is then added to the white detail layer.
Then add the New Baby sentiment to one side and the clouds and balloons to the opposite side and finish the card with a pink Organza bow and pink and white craft perfect striped bakers twine and add the little dummy I am sure that this card would stand out on the mantlepiece and be a true keepsake.

Materials to create this card :-
Silhouette die set Babies,Bunting,Balloons & Bunnies
Bowscale layering die sets
Basic oval layering die sets
Sew pretty two die set- Cherish the moment
Will's hand Cherish sentiment
Craft perfect Bright White card stock
Craft perfect kraft card
Craft perfect chocolate brown 
Polka dot papers
Blue fine liner pen






The card was created cutting two the same size from the Bowscale die set and then scoring about 1" deep across this will be the back of the card this is forming a hinge for the front panel to adhere to then it's just a matter of cutting different sizes in different co-ordinating colours.
The sew pretty die is cut in white craft perfect and with a blue fine liner pen add the faux stitching around the edge , next cut the next layer in Kraft card these are added to the card with 3D foam pads now cut the babygrow using the outer edge die in white craft perfect and then with the detail Die you need to draw around the die with a pencil on polka dot paper and cut out free hand then by eye you need to chop off the bottom part of the babygrow to look like a T shirt but make sure the white base is slightly longer than the polka dot layer so you have a fine border and also trim off the baby's feet each side then cut a small scallop oval for the centre of the T,shirt


Now you will need to die cut the detail part of the die and snip with the scissors to cut out the bunny and the balloons the bunny is then glued to a piece of chocolate brown card stock and trimmed with scissors you need to cut two Balloons with Kraft card and back on white card and again trim with scissors this is then glued to the oval then with the balloons you trimmed off earlier they need to be backed with blue card stock and trimmed free hand and placed at the top of the card and then adding the cherish sentiment to the bottom of the card in cornflower blue Craft perfect and bright white craft perfect.
