Baby 2

   This is the second of my baby cards for my nieces, again using a Lili of the Valley stamp. They have so many cute images.
   I have made an easel card this time and shaped it in the form of a babies bib. The front of the card is made from pink core'dinations cardstock matted onto white card .As I do not have any lace I tried to create the effect by using silver peel offs on the white border edged with a strip of narrow pink peel offs. I attached ribbons where the bib ties would be. The image, called 'All our dreams' is coloured using Promarkers. I cut it out and attached it to the card with foam pads. I also cut out the little hearts from the stamped image but these I attached with glue gel. 'Congratulations' is cut from pink mirri card using a tattered lace die.
   The base of the easel is covered with designer paper from my stash. I have used the same combination of peel offs round the edge of this. The stop for the easel is formed from the sentiment which is part of the LOTV stamp matted onto piink mirri card.
