Baby Swan Thanks

When pregnancies don't go well and we are looked after by amazing medical staff don't we just  overflow with gratitude for all their care and attention?  This card is one of a few that I made for a friend of mine to give to the people who looked after her and her baby when he was born six weeks early.  What a delight and an honour to be able to share in that gratitude by designing and making the cards for her. 

The swan and signet are stamped onto Whisper White and then fussy cut out so that they are really striking against the Crumb Cake cardstock.  If you look closely you'll see that the little signets are coloured very softly in Blushing Bride and Soft Sky.  This is to represent her daughter and two sons.  Cute, huh?

To make the colour stand out on the Crumbcake cardstock, first colour in the flowers in Whisper White Craft Ink, wait for it to dry, and then colour with the markers.

Here's everything you need to make this card yourself. 
Just click on any item to be taken straight to it in my store.

Happy crafting, 


  1. Gorgeous Fiona! Very clever how you stamped and cut the swans and love the idea of adding the white ink before colouring ! Good job!!
