This card will be a choice of boy or girl...depending on what you might be expecting (not literally!)

This is another free cutting file but this one was from Miss Kate Cuttables. Kate does a daily freebie which is usually a cutting file and they are great so worth checking out her website.  This one is no longer free but is available for a very small charge.  I make a point of logging on each day in order to download the freebie while it lasts. 

Her files often involve quite a lot of layers which I've trimmed out of this version.  The elephant is just two layers of shades of grey.  I've added some highlights with a white pen.  The balloon was attached with a thin piece of cut card but I've just used a piece of ribbon and also added a bow,  I made the balloon big enough to accommodate a little stamped message.  I've also added a few mini punched hearts and also a matching oval at the bottom for the elephant to stand on.  I love the combination of grey with either the pink or the blue and think this makes a really sweet new baby card,

This is the last card for me to share from the forthcoming workshop...still time to book your place.  We are meeting on Tues 12th June 10am at Blakemere Village,  Call or email the shop The Wendy House to book a place.

Here is another of the cards we will be making at the workshop on Tues 12th June.  This one is a wedding cake but I've not added any greeting so that whoever makes this can do that however they want - either freehand writing or stamping or printing.  I've stamped behind using a very useful simple line flourish by Honey Doo.  The cake itself is actually the front of a free cutting file on the Cricut Air. It should be a shaped freestanding card but I've shrunk the card and just used the front.  I've cut the front in a pearl ivory card and the back is a gold glitter card.  I've then added some tiny punches hearts to the flourish also in gold glitter. To finish off the cake, I've added strips of narrow pink ribbon on the cake layers and a bow in the middle.  At the top I've added some paper roses to be the crowning glory!
