JAI 85 - just add baby

Hello there,
well as you may have guessed from the title of today's post this week at Just Add Ink its all about adding "baby". Now I actually gave you all a sneak peek of this card back in July, when JAI had our fancy fold blog hop. My card fold for the blog hop was a Trifold card and luckily enough I made two. Lucky cause things are real busy at home (sick cat, sick Mr 3, incipient sore throat - me :( and there's more but that will do so) at the momment anything that can save me time is just a life saver!! If you want to find my "tutorial" for the Trifold card click here to go back to my Fancy Fold blog post. So first up here is the card closed.

Card fully unfolded
Close up of the front
Close up of the inside
So very quickly I started with a Rose Red base, layered that with Regal Rose mats and then used Sweet Stitches DSP to top off all the panels. I also stamped the bear on the front on the DSP. Adding a couple of buttons and a felt flower to finish it all off. Other additional details include paper piercing lots of the borders another felt flower on the inside and some seam binding tied in a knot. It seemed a rather usual mix of colours and DSP for a baby card but I quite liked it how it turned out. Right I'm taking this sore throat off to bed now!
