For New Grandparents

Hello again. I hope this day finds you well. I've made another baby boy card, this time for a dear couple who have just become new Grandparents.



I had been browsing Pinterest for a few minutes hours the night before I made this and saw a wonderful Christmas card by Ana Z. I then made this card with Ana's card very much in my mind's eye - thank-you in advance Ana.

The lovely vintage papers are by Pion Design. I used Anna Griffin stamps for the silver embossed pram and text. The metal elements are by Nunn Design and Making Memories. The lower sheet has been embossed with hearts using a Cheery Lynn plate. For the borders I used a Martha Stewart punch and edge dies by Magnolia and Cheery Lynn. The fishtail flags are cut with MFT Dienamics dies and the circles with Spellbinder dies. Sprinkled around lots of blue frantage. Then completed with oodles of silver and white pearls (Waco pens) and a blue satin bow.

As always, huge thanks for stopping by.
Warmest wishes,
Nicola x
