Baby, It's a Mulit-fold

I have a couple of families to send new baby cards to. This is for a new boy obviously, and I've a new baby girl one to send out too. Sadly being housebound I'm not going to get to see them, but I've seen a photo of Mom and new baby girl. I'm busy crocheting baby cocoons too. 

My card stock is cut 4in by 12in scored and folded at 4in and 8in, and then scored diagonally to create flaps. My cut out images are from a lovely sheet I had from Craft Creations....loads on it to mix and match on a card, and used a fair bit on this one alone. It's my new stash, my old stash is the little blue dummy (soother), so cute, why have I left it hiding away for years eh!!

This was I admit a time consuming card, but I enjoyed every minute, I like more complicated cards. Inside the card, is another card, with space for my personal well wishes etc. There are a lot of pix to show you, bare with me.

Great card, Lin! Love cards that open up and do something.
About your blog: ok, it starts off blue sky. then flashes into a greenish gray solid color. Then the sides and header (excluding your banner)turns black and goes back and forth between black and damask before finally settling with damask. Very strange. lol
