A New Great-Niece

Today I am sharing the card I made for my nephew and wife, on the arrival of their
new baby daughter Isla, weighing in at 9lb 13.5oz.
I started by embossing a piece of white card with the hearts embossing
 folder,  then cut out a frame using the scalloped die. The pram I die cut 
from card and white foam, and before sticking together, I placed some pink card 
behind the cut out parts. After sticking the pram to the centre of the 
card base, I attached the frame using 3D foam strips.
Lastly I added the die-cut sentiment and some diamante gems to finish.

 The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Scalloped Squares
Docrafts - Xcut Embossing Folder - Hearts
Craft House die - Pram
and here she is...
