New Baby vintage frame

Hello again lovelies! Just dropping in on this cold Saturday night to share with you a recent project made for a friend to give as a gift for some new parents.

Apologies for the quality of the photographs - despite my (amazing) new camera (a Christmas present off my lovely husband) I completely forgot to photograph this project until 10 minutes before my friend came to collect it! So, these were taken at about 6pm on my dining room table with nothing but the living room light to illuminate it - and of course I had a cheeky 2-year-old around my feet too!

I have my clever friend to credit for the sweet message inside the frame. She specified exactly what she wanted to say, and I was allowed free reign to decorate it. I used a Traveling Typewriter font and printed it onto some cream American Crafts lined patterned cardstock for a vintage finish, then used the new Docrafts Bellissima range to decorate - the balloon caught my eye and was exactly the look I wanted - I especially love the silver gilt effect on the die-cuts.

I created my own hand-cut bunting using patterned paper and silver cord. I also fussy-cut a cloud from patterned paper and die-cut a second cloud from Authentique Renew cardstock. I have enough supplied left to create a second identical frame, ready for another new arrival. I just hope the new parents like it! :)
