Welcome Little One - with Papermilldirect

Hello and welcome to this week's Blog Post, The Design Team have been working on the theme of 'New Baby' and I have a simple 2 colour card to share with you this week.

But first news of the Special Offer, which this week is the very lovely and very special 230gsm White Seal Embossed card and is available in A3 as well as A4 sizes starting at just £15 - you'll find it in the Special Offers section of the website - Link Here:

Flourishes and swirls are quite popular at the moment in card making, so I thought it would be nice to use them to create a simple 2 colour design to welcome a baby girl.

The card base has been created by scoring and folding Papermilldirect white hammered card to create a base to accommodate the 7” x 5” panel. The front layered swirl pattern has been cut on the Cricut Explore using a cutting file by Birds Cards, and a sentiment from within the Cricut Design Space subscription.  (as always materials list and links at bottom of post)

The layered panel was resized to measure 7” x 5” and the sentiment was easily resized to fit the oval panel on the front. I choose PMD plain white and baby pink cardstocks for the panel and sentiment. 

Cosmic Shimmer glue was used to glue the white swirl part to the pink swirl backing and then the whole panel was mounted to the card front using 3D foam pads to give height and depth to the cut outs. I also used cosmic shimmer glue to layer the sentiment and again attached to the card front using 3D foam pads.

Pale pink organza ribbon tied in a bow and some pale pink adhesive gems provide the finishing touches.
