Happy New Baby
I had a lot of fun making this card for my friends (the parents of the big sister, whose card is here). I'm at the age where most of my friends are well past their child-bearing/rearing stage of life, so when I get an opportunity to make a baby card, it's a real treat!
The new Fringe Scissors are a treat to use, too. I've never been able to cut evenly-spaced cuts with my paper snips, but these scissors make it a snap (or should I say SNIP)! And to make sure I cut an even depth every time, I used a fine Sharpie to draw depth markings at 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", and 1". Shear genius! (Get it?)
The giraffe and elephant were fussy-cut and I got a little crazy cutting the mane on the giraffe. I mean, really, who is going to even notice that kind of detail? The tail is a little piece of Hemp Twine (retired) with the end frayed.
Well, off to prepare for tomorrow's Second Saturday Stamp Club! We're doing some fun fold cards this month, woohoo!
