Births, Deaths & Marriages

I love doing alternative baby cards (as I have previously mentioned...) I think it makes them more personalised and a change form your pastel blues and pinks. Here is a card I made for a friend. I added his name and birth date to personalise. Using a collage patchwork effect for the background, I worked on adding layer and dimension. The space underneath his name was lacking in something, so the little button charm fitted perfectly.

These cards were made for a couple of recent weddings I went to.  I used the colour scheme and themes to fit in with the inspirations for these.

A dear family friend of ours recently lost her husband, I wanted to make a simple but elegant card.  I used one of the stampin up stamps and a small flower punch to put over the top to represtnt forget-me-nots.
