"Hello Baby Girl" By Gerry van Gent

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I am sharing a cute project that I created for a new-born baby girl.
This time I decided to create something special instead of a traditional card.
I used the Free New Baby Paper Downloads and
I mixed some old and new Sizzix dies.

To create this project I used two different sizes wooden spools 
which were my base to attach the die-cut filmstrips.
Filmstrips were die cut from dark brown cardstock and adhered
around the wooden spools. Then I treated a bit with gesso & ink.

I used one of the gorgeous butterfly dies included in the Sizzix Plus Starter Kit.
It was die cut from white cardstock and decorated with a mini paper rose.

Cute little hearts come from the Heart border (Decorative Trim #2).
I cut separately each heart and glued on the styrofoam.

Don't you just love that cute little bird from Free New Baby Paper Downloads?

"Hello" phrase was die cut twice - once from white cardstock and
once from the pattern paper. 

From "Congratulations" phrase I made a banner by
cutting a small triangles at both ends.
I attached to filmstrip with foam squares for more dimension.


My project was adhered on a piece of styrofoam and
then adhered on a wooden tray.
