Baby Doilies

A dear friend is soon having her first baby.  Later on today her Mum is hosting for her what looks to be the baby shower to end all baby showers.  If the invitation is any sort of indication (itself a work of art) we will be entertained all afternoon.


This is the card I made to take along on the big day. Now all I have to do is find a present to match.


The gorgeous little doilies were cut out using the Sizzix Big Shot and come from the Die-namics range called Mini Doily Circles. 


Grey is the colour scheme of the baby's room and the colour theme used on the invitation.

 
The innocuous looking pin wheel, took three attempts to get right, the smaller the trickier. It is simply a square that is then cut on the diagonal, from the corner edges to just over half way in towards the centre of the square, this one started out its life as a 3cm square. The high element of difficulty came from trying to fasten the minute corners into the centre - think I need some fairy fingertips.
 


When you want a child, you have a lot to hope for.
