Simple baby card

Morning all, Amanda here, from a rather wintry Scotland, it is very white outside, but not as white as it could be so I gotta be thankful for that right?

I thought I would share this REALLY simple card with you today.  There is a wee sneaky peek at a new digi image from Anice, but it's nice and small and hopefully Anice won't notice and smack my wrists too much haha!

I used the Rainbow Polkadots papers.  I do love polkadots.  I drew round my double sided tape roll once on each sheet.  Once cut out, I cut them in half.  One half becomes the base of the pram, then cut the other in half again to make the hood.  Two small circles (I drew round my pritt stick lid this time....technical stuff here!) for the wheels.  It looked a wee bit bare so I found a wee sliver of pink ribbon and coloured it purple with a promarker to edge the base of the pram.  Then a small tag made with the BABY word digi image and it was done!

I do like a nice simple card, and this one is perfect for a last minute card, as it really doesn't take long to make.  You can also make it more fancy if you have the time :)

I also made a wee tag to go with this card.  It is paper pieced with the same polkadot paper, and just a few wee added pearls.

We'd love you to share any Funky Hand makes you've been making, either here or on the Funky Hand Facebook page.

  3. I really like this card Amanda. Love the way you have created it using anything that is to hand on your craft desk. It's nice to see that a lovely card can be made without expensive craft gadgets and as you said you can add other things to it if you wanted to, to make it all your own. Fab inspiration.
