My very first commissioned card!
A friend wanted a New Baby card
for a baby Girl due in February.
and this is the card I made for her.
I had these 'Jenny Ellory' papers in my stash
which also came with a page of accessories to use with them.
A Joy fold card sprang immediately to mind
as I wanted to do lots of layers.
Pink card and polka dot ribbon from my stash.
I backed the stork tag onto a scrap of the pink card
and created a pocket to house it within the card.
Back of tag has been left blank to add
the baby's name when known and a short greeting.
I made a matching box for the card to go in
which I have never done before using my envelope maker
so this is my trying out a new shape for this post.
Pleased to say my friend loved the card and box.

has now exploded into 4 new elves needed for Dec 2015
and another Advent Calendar to be made.
