CD Sunday - Bundle of Joy

Just popped back to edit the post as I forgot the link to CD Sunday.

Time for another challenge over at CD Sunday Challenge blog where the theme this week is "Bundle of Joy"

I am not a big user of cutie images although I have used them more recently - so I needed to find something that fitted the bill without being too cutsie.  After a look among the possible CD's this is what I decided to create;

A gate-fold card - a large one too.
OK - you can't see the "bundle of joy" - but it is there in the pram.

Here is another view showing it slightly open & the layers are more visible.

For this card I used My Craft Studio CD Papercraft Library Volume 5 - Faith Hope & Charity.  This new mum is Charity.

I didn't have a gate-fold card big enough for the design so I created one from 2 6" x 4" cards joined together with backing card & an insert.  I printed 2 copies of the topper & cut out Charity & the pram, the flower in the tub on the right & the bird in the tree to 3-d them.  The background papers look like cross stitch material which went with the rather homespun appeal of these images.

This little pendant I also printed twice.  The second layer is the pendant without the bow & before attaching it to the card I inked it with Versamark ink then embossed it with Clear EP to give it the look of glass.  That doesn't show up very well in the photo.

All I need now is someone I know to have a daughter or grand-daughter so that I can give the card to them.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Please call again.


  1. Yes , it's cute ....but not at all sickly cute.Just the right amount of whimsical-ness for a new baby card and the (yet unknown!) recipient is sure to be delighted.
