I am very pleased with the end result. When I first saw the picture of the baby pram in the Cross Stitch Card Shop issue 47 at Knotty Shop... I know I have to get it. It's the perfect personal gift I want to make for an ex-colleague. She has just given birth to a 3.42kg baby boy and the baby happen to be her first-born child. So the colour blue will be the right choice for this card.To spice up this card....(with pots and pans heehee and eyes rolling...lol) I added in some acid-free scrapbook embellishments at the front page.
I stamped the word 'CONGRATULATIONS' at the inner page using dye-ink coffee colour. This is my first attempt at stamping. You can see that the stamping is not that good especially at the ending part. I should have stamped and tested on some draft papers first before I did it on the card. Anyway I leave it as it is. Hmmmm... should I add in more wordings at this page?? What you think? Any suggestions?
Now the back page..... I was browsing at a local handicraft store and then I came across this 'Handmade by' stamp. Upon seeing it, an idea immediately came to my mind. I can stamp it at the back of the card and sign in my name as MooMoo. Then I saw a COW PUNCHER.... I thought 'Hey...I can punch out 2 paper cows and replaced it with my name!'.
HaHaHaHa.....And so this is how this back page design came about.
Well....really hope that my recipient will like it as much as I do. :-p
