Hello & Welcome

Today is the last day for posting baby cards celebrating the new addition to the family.  This is our card to the new parents
  • I scored a piece of A4 white card stock to create an A5 card.  I typed the words; baby, adorable, boy and yours.... although I now wish I'd typed beautiful instead of boy
  • die cut 4 circles, the 'baby' letters and the accessories
  • Mounting foam was applied to the back of the circles and adhered to the card and the letters glued in place onto the circles
  • I die cut the little sailing boat twice, once on blue card and again on white card.  With the white image I cut the bottom of the boat away and glued the remaining white sails onto the blue boat.  The accessories were adhered, flat, onto the card
  •  As I had typed directly onto the card base I used a fine micron pen, in black, and drew a 'wobbly' (great technical name) border, twice, onto the card.  It really did make a lot of difference!
  • I completed the card with a personal verse and the new mum loved the card

Hello everyone After much heart and soul searching I have finally made the decision to close Poppyfield Card Crafts blog and YouTube channel...
