I didn’t make you wait long to see some other uses for the Baby’s First Framelits. This week is the end of term here in WA, so more thank you cards for all the girls’ activities. This first share is a card for Alexa’s ballet teacher. It has been the most delightful experience, watching Alexa and her new ballet friends enjoy learning how to be little ballerinas. I can’t praise the teacher highly enough – the class is fun, easy going & carefree. Just the way dancing should be when you’re 3!
To make a beautiful ballerina costume, I used the onsie from the framelit set to make the leotard. I added a jacket by cutting two more onsies and then cross cutting with the Extra-Large Oval punch. The bow was made with the hearts from the Owl Builder punch and the circle from the Cupcake Builder punch. The skirt was made using the ring stack framelit (x3) cut out of vellum that I’d coloured using my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker. So pretty – so easy! This would make the perfect birthday card for a little ballerina. I know Alexa loved it when she saw it on the craft table. Kelly x
