Soft and Sweet

I wanted to share a couple cards that show a soft side to cardmaking and to patterned papers.
This patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket looks so quilt-like, so I thought it was perfect for a new baby card, especially with the machine sewing and the punched border that looks so lacey.

I love these letters and so I used one on this card. It could either be an initial or stand for the beginning of the word "all". It is a little hard to see but I used Diamond Glitter 3-D Fashion Paint by Tulip and rhinestones to accent the designs in the paper. I have mentioned that Fashion Paint before and that I like to use it to add glitter to a card because it adds a good amount of bling while still letting the underneath color show through.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
