Friends of the family have just had a baby boy and I do love to flex my card craft skills every once in a while. And hay and new baby card is a perfect time to go completely over the top!
I have seen cards like this for a while now and have always found them to be really cute. I had a rummage through various papers throughout the house and came up with nada. All we had was Happy Birthday and lots of girly patterns. Not so good for boys! So back to the drawing board. I made up the patterns on my computer and printed my own paper! Second hurdle, we had no white card in the house. Cue lots of cutting out and sticking in order to make the card stiff enough to stand up! But hey, got there in the end. The duckies were the easiest choice, although there is a long standing sheep joke between the families! I happened to have the duck buttons lying around. I thought I would never have a use for them, but I am happy, they do look adorable in this setting!
I have to say the ‘lace’ around the circle is not my best, however it was one of the last things I did and it was getting late. Other than that I think the overall card is fab. I did not deliver in person, but the Badgermummy has told me there was a big smile from both parents! All good to know. (“,)
