As promised, I’m so pleased to be showing you three more lovely pink cards I created for baby girls . . . along with the one I showed you last week.

As I mentioned last week, these cards are from a set of papers by Mintay, called “Little One”. There are lots of pretty designs for baby boys, too, so I’ll be working on those next, in between Easter and my next class preparations.

I think this card is probably my favorite. Why? Because I found a gorgeous piece of vintage lace that I knew would look great on the fold of the card. I love “mixed media” cards, with lots of embellishments other than paper . . . and vintage lace and ribbon is absolutely my favorite! This card also features my “signature” embellishment, silk ribbon. I love the soft, yummy look and feel of silk, and get all of my silk ribbons from May Arts Company. This soft pink worked perfectly on this card.
This card is a little more eclectic. I used the same papers and pink silk ribbon, but added some “frill” by using a set of Anna Griffin dies layered on the front of the card.
I used the same Anna Griffin die on the inside of the card, topped with a cream colored oval for writing a greeting. This really ties together the outside and inside of the card. And, its hard to get enough of that gorgeous Mintay paper!
The third card uses the other side of the floral paper as a diecut layer. Having double sided papers to work with is always so much fun, because you know the colors will be complimentary and most of the time, the artists who design the papers use something quite different on each side . . . often times making for some great “mix and match”!! Pink silk ribbon adorns this card, too . . . . and here’s the inside . . ..
When I chose the focal image for the front of the card, I thought the little bunny was so cute it could almost be made into an Easter card! But I stuck with my baby theme and decided to put the cute Anna Griffin diecut of a pink bunny on the inside of the card.

So, did you get your “pink fix” for the day? Hope you enjoyed and maybe got some inspiration here. I’m on to finishing up supplies for my class in Grass Valley this Saturday. We’re exploring all about using vellum on your cards. Should be a lot of fun, as I have lots of examples and cool stuff for everyone to make! Keeps me occupied while we’re in this monsoon season of rain and wind and more rain! Happy crafting!! Do something creative every day! Hugs – Janice
