Graphic 45 Time To Celebrate - New Baby

This baby card was the hardest for me to do and it is probably the most simple looking of all the cards I did out of this collection. I was trying to come up with something different and every time I did I either cut off part of the baby's head or the mother's head and that just wouldn't do so I ended up with this.

Supplies Used: 
Various Cardstock  
1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon
Mounting Foam Squares

I ended up framing the image of the baby and mother and pop dotting the frame. I honestly couldn't figure out what else to do with the image and then that took up most of the card so it's pretty dang simple.

On the tiny flowers I used the Ivory Seashell Nuvo drops on the centers and then also on the centers. Since the centers were a darker pink it gave the little flowers a whole different look than the original image. I dotted Bubblegum Nuvo Drops randomly. I think y'all can tell by now that I Crystal Nuvo Drops are one of my new addictions!

The butterfly was on the original "frame" and I and I think it adds a nice little touch up in the corner. You can tell better in this picture how the frame is pop dotted off the main image.


  1. So lovely! I really like the butterfly pop dotted, dimension always makes things more attractive. You like to ideally make 6 cards at a time, do you make multiple layouts too? Have you ever shown Graphic 45 the amazing things you do with their paper? You are the person who turned me into a hoarder, er, collecter. They should sponsor you or at least send you free chit. This is perfect for any baby scenario, especially vintage chalked black and white pictures. I just happen to have a portrait of my mom as a baby with two more generations of women on her mom’s side. Now I need some Graphic 45 paper!

  2. Another fabulous card Shirley. It is such a beautiful card to give any new parents. I love Graphic 45 papers, they are always so unique and beautiful and always has such lovely coordinating patterns and prints. I haven't seen the Time To Celebrate series yet, but is sure has some amazing vintage images on it. I will definitely be looking for it.
