Door Hanger

A couple of weeks ago, when I was having my crafty weekend with Kylie, I also went round to visit some friends who had recently had a baby girl. James was one of my first friends from university, and Jenny was Kylie's friend from school, so they have us to thank for meeting!

Inspired by my visit to meet their new addition to their family, I decided to make a door hanger as a gift to them. I'd bought a plain door hanger a week or so before in a craft shop in Leeds city centre. I used the Beau Chateau papers to cover the hanger, and used the sanding blocks to get a clean edge around the sides and the circle.

The door hanger covered with the Beau Chateau paper

Die cut letters from the Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz die

I used the Alphabet Simple Letters Bigz dies to cut the letters from Pink Pirouette card stock, and the Fun Flowers die to cut flowers from Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette and Beau Chateau papers. A few of the card stock flowers were embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder. The edges of the letters and flowers were inked with Soft Suede. I then used the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die to cut the butterflies. It's a clever product, as it cuts and embosses at the same time. Finally, Rhinestone Jewels were placed on the butterflies for added bling.

I hope they like it, and that baby Hana does when she's a little older.
