Sweet Baby Girl

Hi there.

A quick post tonight as I am very tired. We are in the middle of month long celebrations for hubby's Big 4-Oh! We had a late night/early morning, which backed onto a late night with a sick child.

This card was for a dear friend of mine who had a baby girl at the end of September. I am just loving these pin wheels at the moment. And when paired with doilies I think they look so sweet!

I used the Brights DSP and some gorgeous paper from the Flirtatious Speciality DSP for the pin wheel and card background.

I layered two buttons, one Big Designer Button in Melon Mambo and one lighter pink, and tied some pink and white twine through the top one.  I have used a white doily underneath the pin wheel, which gives such a delicate look.

I used a wooden skewer for the stick, which I covered in white ribbon. I must buy some white lollipop sticks....mental note!

I added the sentiment Sweet Baby Girl onto a flag and attached it to the pin wheel stick.

I added a cute little ribbon embellie, making a bow and adding 3 sweet and tiny, pink and white flowers.

I made a matching bag, which I forgot to photograph. Doh! I used a white paper bag with handles and stuck a white doily on the centre front. I then made a pin wheel using the same doily paper as on the card. I didn't add a stick to this one. I adhered the pin wheel onto the doily and then spelt the babies name out in pink letters underneath. I tied the handles together with some white seam binding and added a pink rose and some white Cherry Blossoms. Very sweet!

I decorated the inside very simply, to leave room for a message. I used the Congratulations stamp from Well Scripted and the It's a girl from Little Additions to make the sentiment. The cute little star mobile in the corner is also from Little Additions.

Too cute hey! I really like this card, I will have to make a few more. Maybe try some different colours.

  1. I am sure your friend will treasure this gorgeous card, Sarah. So sweet and girly!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous. I love that your pin wheel is different to any other I've seen lately. How did you get those lovely rounded corners?

    This is a stunning card. Thanks for the inspiration - I don't know of any girls coming up but I look forward to CASEing this one day.

  3. Your card is beautiful. I too would like to know how you did the pin wheel. Everyone else seems to have straight sides, but yours are a beautiful shape. How did you do it?


Thank you for taking the time to leave me some comment love. It always makes my day!
