Sent From Heaven

I'm taking a little break today from the holiday cards, and decided to share with you a great card for a new baby.  This is a wing-fold card which is really simple to make, but is very impressive to recieve.

Cut the following pieces of paper to assemble card

Mist (blue)  cardstock:  5 ¾  x 12” - scored at 3 3/8; 5 1/8; 6 7/8; 8 5/8

Cut (2) from Lullaby  3 1/8 x5 ½

Cut (3) from Bundle of Joy 1 ½ x 5 ½


Die cut:

(2) Victorian Garden Doily Frame in Ivory

(1) Japanese Lace Oval  Angel Wing in Ivory

(1) Japanese Lace Oval in New Arrival


1.       Ink the edges of all patterned papers with Dark Cashmere ink.  Adhere the Victorian Garden Doily to each of the Lullaby mats.  Trim the excess from the doily frame.  Glue panels to the outer sides of the card base.

2.       Glue the three small Bundle of Joy  papers to the 3 center panels of the card.

3.       Glue the Japanese Lace Oval diecut to the cut shadow background.  Add pearls to each tip.

4.       Trace the oval from the Japanese Lace oval, and cut from Ivory cardstock.  Ink the edges.  Stamp the baby using Robin’s Egg.  Allow to dry completely, and stamp the sentiment, slightly overlapping the image using embossing ink.  Sprinkle with gold embossing powder and heat set.

5.       Adhere to the oval doily using dimensional adhesives and add bow.
