Thank you for taking time to visit, and I hope I am even a tiny bit helpful as I have been helped and blessed by so many others. I have been doing Calligraphy since teens, and card making for many years as well. In 1990 I delighted in the joys of stamping with ink and embossing after a trip to Cairns, Qld. In 2009 I discovered the brayer, 2010 the Cuttlebug, also have now taking to reading up on crafting blogs and lo! Here I am, on one of my own.

I live on the coast of eastern Australia. I am a Christian. I trusted in the LORD down here at the beach, amazingly it is not far from where I now live. It was over 40 years ago, after a Beach Mission Service at the age of 12 years

Baby card ~ Hudson/ Peter (Rabbit) comes to stay

Hullo there everyone!
Well this card was made a while back now but not blogged, and one of my family asked recently where it was, as it was known I had made one ~ so Nat this is for you! and of course, for Felicity and Nick, and little Hudson Peter!
Here 'tis! 
 Here you can see the details of the card - some time back at a sale at Spotlight store here in town, they were getting rid of some gorgeous Beatrix Potter items. Managed to buy some before they were all gone! (yay, thanks LORD!) this set came in half a dozen scrap book pages of 12 x12" for scrapping.
 I don't scrap and when going through my sheets came across the set, and thought:"Mm, I could fiddly cut out the corner feature from page of the Peter Rabbit, for my card feature..". It does have glitter on it but hard to see and so does DP. 
Here on left is close up and popped it on little mounts. On right is computer generated birth details for card and greeting, the cut in Octagons from Spellbinders. The background designer sheet is from same set. The pearl swirl was also another fab find, bought on sale ages ago in stash (was so excited when realised it matched! I do pray when making cards and does help :D). Lace is from Kaisercraft, with Martha Stewart Deep Edger Blossom Eyelet border punch, in co-ordinating papers.
Thank you so very much popping over for a peek and a chat (you make my day)  :D and may God bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz.x

Oh this is adorable and so clever. Wonderful Baby card so glad I popped over to answer your question.
Before I lift off the Floral Oval die, I draw round the centre and hand cut it out. Then place over my image and using the gaps in the pattern make a guide where I need to cut and trim if necessary.
Off to check I'm following you.
luv
Debby

Shaz, I love visiting your delightful blog! Always so inspiring to read through!

What a beautiful card to announce this young fellow's arrival. Enlarging really showed your sparkles too. That was a bunch of fussy cutting on the PR too. Good job (lots of patience). Such a treasured heirloom I expect this one will be, and to be enjoyed many years into the future. Loved everything about this special card. TFS
