It's a Boy

Hi everybody, this was a half done card from my box so I thought I would finish it quickly because I need to make a couple of baby cards. Our friends are about to become grandparents - in fact it may have already happened! I haven't decided whether this will be for the parents or the grandparents so I'll leave off the greeting for now.

As you can see it is a waterfall mechanism and I printed the cute toy bunnies from my Greeting Card programme, matting onto two shades of blue and silver. The ribbon and the pram charm are from my stash.

This is showing some of the wording  inside the waterfall.

I used some silver rub ons to display a greeting as each card is pulled through.

Hope you all have a great day today.

Love from Christine xx


  1. Good Morning Christine,
    Yet another beautiful card
    Either the Parents or the Grandparents will be thrilled to receive it.
    Have a Great Day


  2. Hi Christine,
    I do so love your cards. They are soooooo lovely. You know what you said about great minds. Well I was only thinking the other day I haven't seen a waterfall card for ages, perhaps I'll make one, and then today your lovely creation is on the blog. The peeps receiving this will be so pleased with it.
    Have a wonderful crafty day everyone.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  3. this is gorgeous Christine. I love the design and the delicate shades of blue.

    Hugs Sue

  4. Hi Christine, another beautiful creation and love that little bunny and soft blue colour. I have tried a waterfall card but never completed it, I think it went in the bin but will have another try sometime. Keep your lovely cards coming you give me such inspiration. Love Christine H xx
    P.S. Your little footballer inspired me to have a go and that is what I'm trying at the moment, thank you.

    1. Good for you Christine. I'll look forward to seeing some of them when Linda is up and on the go again - unless of course you decide to have your own blog! Look at me; I always said no way, but I've been really enjoying it! Thanks for all your lovely comments; they are a real encouragement to me! Love from Christine x

  5. Hi Christine, had a bit of time before leaving for London so having a quick blog hop - love this card and the blue colour tones are gorgeous, Carole Z X

  6. A really beautiful card. Gorgeous colour.

  7. Hi Christine - this is soooo cute I've never made a waterfall card that works!! LOL. They always get stuck! I love the shades of blue and the little pram charm is gorgeous.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  8. Waterfall cards are a lot of fun aren't they, to make and receive. The image is very cute, a lovely card again. Hugs lin

  9. What a beautiful card! Waterfall toppers are great , I made my first one from a template on the web and it took me a few goes to get it right. Saying that I've made the waterfall topper yet still haven't managed to make a card with it yet lol. I adore the colours on this card , I've noticed lately that blue tends to be my favourite colour. Your charm is just fab too! All the best. Sharon xxxx

  10. How lovely to see your pretty waterfall, they seem to be rarely made these days. If the other girls have a go too we can start a revival. I do so love to see things coming back around don't you. It's not because I am like fashion and have to follow the trends, it's just that it reminds me to use things I have laid away for far too long. Which reminds me have you seen the new stamps to be released by LOTV on Oct 1st? Oh my are their little Geisha girls gorgeous! I adore anything like that, so I can't wait to treat myself when they come out. I'm saving already!!
    Hugs Linda xx
