Allsorts "No Rubber"

Hello everyone,

I came across a tutorial from Lauren Meaden to make this gorgeous "Onesie" card or, for us in the UK, a "babygro card". I thought it was so cute I just had to have a go at making one myself.

Mine is a little different as I didn't have the tools Lauren used but I'm very pleased with it. Although now I've photographed it I can see I need to get my glue out again for some more sticking (top right hand corner) - isn't it funny how things show up on the photographs that you don't notice otherwise?

I am entering it in this week's Allsorts Challenge where you are banned from using rubber.

I hope someone has a baby girl soon!

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Cardstock: pink is Bazzil Basics
Tools: circle punches, plain and scalloped circle nestabilities, swiss dots Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders die (teddy)
Accessories: Papermania heart gems.

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking a look, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

Clare xx

Hi Clare

This is so so cute, just goes to show what we can all do without our stamps - frightening as that thought is to us all.

And whoever is the lucky recipient will be so please with such an unusal card.

Thanks for joining us at Allsorts again this week.
