New baby card

A beautiful baby girl entered the world yesterday, my 7th grandchild - Seren (pronounced as in serendipity, serenade, and which is the Welsh word for 'star'). I made a card to go with the gifts I gave her parents:

The edging is just Stewart Gill Pearlise and Metallica paint dabbed and smeared on thinly using a baby wipe, with some pearlescent cream textured card layered on top. The main embellishments is made from Stewart Gill glitterati fibres (also known as Crystalina). I used two colours and mixed them well, then fused them together with an iron on a medium heat (protect the iron with non-stick paper). I trimmed 3 sides of the fused fibres, then ran the piece through my Wizard machine in a Cuttlebug embossing folder. This creates a lovely subtle pattern in amongst all the shimmer. Finally, I used a stencil and Golden light moulding paste to create the hands.

  1. I love this, Adrienne! I particularly like the colour, the embossing, and the way you've trimmed 3 sides but not the bottom, and the little stencil is adorable. It's a great card.
