New Arrival

Good Morning Crafters!

Hope everyone is doing okay, midway through the week now!
Following on from my previous posts, I created a card for my beautiful new niece's arrival.
I found a wonderful website which specialises in paper piecing My Scrap Chick.
There is so many wonderful, wonderful templates on this website, all can be used with cutting machines but they also include PDF files for hand cutting, which is great for me as i don't have a cutting machine.

I chose these adorable templates to create my card.

Aren't they just adorable!
I was a little apprehensive as I am a rubbish cutter! But it was simple, and there are a few tutorials on how to get the best out of the kits! A really great website.

So without further ado, here is my creation!

Apart from almost throwing the scissors trying to cut out the tiny toes and tiny eyes this was an absolute joy of a card to make. I have kept it simple but I love how it turned out!

Card Ingredients

All card is just odd coloured and plain card I had lying around
Inks and Things: I added highlights to the elephants and chalked the edges of the card
Odds and Sods: Sentiments generated in word and just printed onto white card.

Speak to you all again soon!
Take care,
