The customer is always right

Our last special occasion card was a baby card.   For baby cards,  the three qualities I identified were, soft/delicate, subtle and with lots of white.

Our first card used the now retired Stitched Stocking punch and Sahara Sand.  Petronella Hardy has beautiful versions of this card on her blog in pink and blue.  I loved her design but I went for the neutral to suit any baby!  The frill around the oval is done with the Doily Triple Layer punch.  Cut each piece in half and glue to the back of the oval with Tombow then sponge to give depth.

One of my customers, Jean,  wanted to go a little simpler and thought she might add a teddy in the centre and thought she had a teddy stamp at home.  She obviously underestimated my stamp collection as I was able to quickly find a teddy stamp.  The result was a cleaner and simpler design which I loved.

Some dimensionals give the design depth.  This was a much better second version of the design than I had dreamed up.  Thanks Jean!

And we tried it again as a birthday card...
