Christening card

Next month is the baptism of a friend's little girl, so I wanted to make a special card for the occasion. I had the idea of a string of bunting spelling out Miranda's name, and originally thought the bunnies could hold it in their mouths. This would have made for a very low-level card, though! So I cut some birds freehand and strung the bunting from their beaks, and added a cut-out pram and grass. The letters were printed out onto different shades of coloured card, snipped into triangles, and stuck along a length of thread with seed beads in between.

Rainbow cupcake

This was made for a competition which asked for a card with a rainbow. I used up some of my stash of ribbon making a striped background, and added a cupcake on foam pads, onto which I'd added several rainbow gems. The white background makes it look fresh and pretty.
