Not me don’t worry.
The boyfriend’s sister has just had a little baby girl who is utterly gorgeous. We had arranged to go see her over the weekend so I knew I had a time scale on making a card.
The previous new baby cards I’ve done have been very much stereotypically cross stitch designs but I’ve recently tried branching out and looking for more design lead designs (god I need a thesaurus).
I found this design on etsy via pinterest and love the idea of the Russian dolls but I wanted a more traditional design. When I was little I had a set of Russian dolls and so I googled them to see of I could find that design. Turns out it’s probably the most common design for Russian dolls but I like it.
So I drew something up and came out with this:
I was going to write “congratulations Isabelle” but then after I had stitched Isabelle I realised it sounded like I was congratulating the baby for being born which is a bit weird. So I changed the writing mid project (no big surprise there for me). I think the writing now makes more sense.
And as promised….here’s my new stamp in action on the card:
The card went down well but was soon swallowed in the mass of new baby cards there. The card industry must make a fortune!
Hope you like my stamp!
