Eadie Mae Circle card

I've never made a completely round card before, so I thought I would share the one I made for friends of ours who had a baby daughter last week.  She weighed in at 9lbs and is absolutely gorgeous and I had a lovely cuddle with her yesterday and even got to feed her, although we left before it was time to change her nappy lol.

Anyway getting back to the card!  I folded a sheet of A3 card and used the grand decorative circles to cut out the shape and then used the same dies, one the same size and two smaller ones to cut from pink paper (think this was the Lucy Cromwell pad - I love that paper!)   I stamped the image onto the smaller circle and then paper pieced it using the scraps from the sheets (us crafters don't waste anything!). 

I then stamped her name and date of birth using the Clarity stamps and then made the flowers from a x-cut petal punch which I had bought at a reduced price the day before!!!! 

I just realised there was a loose petal on the right flower when I took the photo - oops!

Eadie Mae also has an elder brother Archie (who's 4 and a half) and not wanting to leave him out I made him a big brother card, which bless him he recorded a thank you message for me on Facebook. It was one of those cards that didn't take too long to make but the reward was well worth it.  


  1. Two beautiful cards Trudi.....Did you know you can now get those alphabets, as dies??

  2. Gorgeous cards, love the idea of making big bro a card too! So sweet!

  5. How lovely that they both get something. The pink girly baby card is adorable and I love it so much. Those gorgeous diecuts make the card look really frilly.
