Card of the week, handmade stork design

handmade_baby_cards_PF11

Last week we ran a competition asking our facebook followers to pick their favourite card. First up was Nicola Reynolds to choose our ‘new baby girl’ stork design.

So, where did the inspiration come from?!

In the UK, Storks are a popular bird that represent the arrival of a new baby, so our stork theme was an easy choice!  This design sits within the perfectly floral collection, which has a water colour illustration as the focal point of each design, hence the water coloured stork.  To give the impression of joy and celebration, I duplicated him to sit on a baby pink background with soft, stitched felt flowers.  To soften the design, I chose to embellish the flowers with a cream Swarovski pearl.

A big thank you to Nicola for choosing our forever popular stork and we hope she enjoyed her free card for entering the competition! xx
