Last night my friend asked if I could make her a Christening card for Sunday,when I was half way through making it I realised it was suitable for this week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.The challenge is called 1,2,3 which is ONE ribbon,TWO buttons and THREE punches/diecuts.
When I was looking for suitable papers I found a Me & My Big Ideas Vintage Shabby Chic paper pad which I'd forgotton that I'd got.The papers are gorgeous and you'll be seeing a lot more of them now I've rediscovered it,lol.
I cut out a large Nestie circle for the baby carriage and cut a quarter away to form the pram shape,I used a Martha Stewart punch to get the frilly edge on the hood.I added TWO Jenni Bowlin vintage buttons for the wheels and some lace to look like a vintage blanket.The other two diecuts are the scalloped square and straight square also cut from Nesties which makes THREE diecuts,I added a Websters Pages Vintage Sparkler to the ONE ribbon.
