Good morning friends~ I've got a cutie pie gift set that I made and put together for my daughter's sister-in-law who's expecting a tiny baby girl in October. As many of you know, I like to make my gifts based off the shower invitations I receive. People choose their shower invitations as a means of reflecting their style so by coordinating the gift to go along with the invitation, I feel like it's more personal than just buying a gift. This sounds strange, but personal invitations get my creative juices flowing.
For this gift, the baby shower had a sweet pink floral background with a swan wearing a gold crown. How appropriate, since their last name is Swan. Spellbinders Card Kit of the Month for February 2019 titled "Golden Swan" was the perfect die set to start my layered scene.
I made the swan, using three layers of the wing to add dimension. I pulled out lots of dies to create the surrounding scene.
Look at the detail on the pretty Elizabeth Craft Design Wisteria. Can you guess how many hours it took me to cut, shape, glue and assemble that wisteria bush with glittered centers? A long time!
Here's the invitation and the outfit I found on Amazon to go along with it. The colors couldn't have matched more perfectly. Cute as can be! Right??
As it happened, I didn't have a girlie gift bag so I made my own, using scrapbook paper, some die cut trim, doily, and a pre-printed swan die from the Spellbinders card kit.
Here is the card I made to go along with it.
The baby shower is this weekend. I hope she and baby likes this gift.
I'll be adding one of my hand made projects to the following challenges:
Simon Says Monday Challenge ~ Summer Memories
AAA Challenge ~ Along the Edge (Card with sentiment along the edge)
The Flower Challenge ~ Add Sparkle (Wisteria Flowers)
