Welcome Emily

So last week my little Niece Emily was born, she is my 2nd niece and she is just gorgeous!
Here's the card I made for her.
Stamps: Plaid background stamp on the labels 1 shape is Waltzingmouse Offbeat backgrounds
The butterfly is stamped with polka dots from Waltzingmouse Offbeat backgrounds too. 
The Welcome baby and date stamps are from Papertrey Ink Postmarks set.
Ink: Main images are inked with Memento Dew Drop Angel Pink
Small date circle was too pale in angel pink so I used Colourbox Lilac ink.
Die cuts/Punches: Butterfly is Tonic Studios
Stacked nesties are Spellbinders Label 1 and label 4 - label 4 is embossed with polka dots.
Under the ribbon is a strip from some Bazzill basics die cut strips. 
Little circle is the spellbinders nestie smallest circle size.
The chipboard letters I've had for ages.
Cardstock: Background striped paper is from papermania, don't know which pack, sorry!
Ribbon: VV Rouloux

I also stitched her a personalised blanket. The rabbit is just cut from white fleece material and I embroidered the main features. I then cut out the letters from white fleece (using some chipboard letters as a template!) and then when I'd stitched them on in white I added some outline stitching to make it stand out a little. The blanket itself was from Sainsbury's (a supermarket) and has cute little hearts almost embossed on it.


  1. Oh this is so very precious...a truly adorable card to welcome Miss Emily into the world. Fabulous job!

  2. This is WONDERFUL! Didn't I read that you are pregnant too? How great that your babies will be so close in age.
    Hugs, Karin
