Papertake Weekly Challenge # 15




I was looking through my box of cards that I take to my choir, to see what I was short of. I thought that I could do with a birth congratulation card and hence this card for Papertake Weekly Challenge.
The image is from Stampin Up... I have bought a few sets from the USA on eBay. I think this is really cute. I like simple styles and this is certainly that.
For the tiny heart embossed panel, I decided to run it through the Cuttlebug to add the hearts then put it back into the Nestie and hand emboss the border, as the hearts would have been flattened if I had tried to put it back through the bug.
I just used half of the sentiment stamp as shape of the whole thing wouldn't have fitted so well. It actually says 'Welcome little one'.
Pure and simple!

  1. Hey Chrissie, No problem and if you ever change your mind, its just the black and white image, no coloring. Love your work. I love the long stamps that matches this set that you have used.

  10. beautiful and calm. How did you do the heart embossing? Is it a cuttlebug folder? I feel the need to own it!

    Like the colouring on the image too
