It's cards on Thursday...

with Caz and today I bring you a very quick and simple card! I'm not a big card maker but I do occasionally make them especially when giving hand made gifts :) This card is to follow on (when baby comes) from my memory box given to my 'soon to be new mom' friend last Saturday, which by the way she loved!!
So very simply I cut some patterned paper just smaller than the card blank and inked the edges, I stamped NEW BABY onto green patterned paper, cut each word out and again inked the edges, sticking them in the bottom corner of the paper. The ribbon is threaded with a tiny heart charm, and because the jump ring is so tiny and the ribbon so thick it is not neccesary to tie the ribbon to keep the heart in place, but obviously you will need to judge this yourself depending on your ribbon and charm. I then secured the ribbon to the back of the patterned paper with double sided tape, and using herma I stuck the paper onto the card blank.
And as quick as 1, 2, 3, I have myself a beautiful hand made card with elements that my friend, who is also a new scrapper, can take off and use in her baby album!
Thanks for visiting us here at It's a Creative World! And don't forget to check back on Monday for details of our holiday competition!!
