Sweet...

It's not usual I get crafting done during the day except when baby naps AND 4 year old is at nursery, but I managed it today!

We've had a few happy family events lately, one of which is a new baby for a cousin across the Atlantic. I used the opportunity to make a card and had a play with those free Clearly Besotted stamps I got from Simply Cards and Papercraft 133 and did some masking for the first time.

It's not what I'd call a typical baby card, so on the inside I stamped new baby from the Sweet Little Sentiments set.

I used a card blank and covered it with some pink spotty (yes it was a girl!) backing card from my Pebbles basics. I stamped the jar in Memento Tuxedo Black and then did a few masks of the sweet and stamped away with a selection of VersaMagic DewDrops in pastel shades. I made a mask for the 'Hope your day is as Sweet as you are' sentiment and blocked out everything but the 'Sweet'. The card topper is mounted using foam tape.

Husband was rather impressed and I have to say I thought it wasn't bad for a first attempt at some masking.

Thanks for reading. Hope your weekend has been crafty too!

Gorgeous! Brilliant masking too, you must have some patience, and I love the colours. Nice to see a baby card that is a different. Very clever hun. Hugs Squirrel xx
