Another New Baby
The base card is a white 5" x 7" and I covered the front of it with two pieces of paper from LOTV Country Lady pad. I covered the join with some pink organza ribbon and a piece of pale pink lace both from my stash. I used a new but unused stamp from LOTV stamped onto smooth white card with black Memento ink, and coloured with Promarkers. I brushed over the balloon twice with a clear Wink of Stellar pen and drew in the shine highlights with a white Wink of Stellar pen. I die cut the image using a Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles die and sponged a little Spun Sugar DI shading around the edge before removing it from the die. I layered it onto a plain cut pink mat before fixing it to the card front with thin foam tape. The congratulations stamp is a very old wood mounted one and it didn't stamp very well, but I was aiming for a subtle look anyway hence the coloured ink, I think it was Versafine Crimson Red. I stamped it onto a snippet of the spotted paper and and a matching pink mat. The flowers were also made from die cut and punched snippets and were left overs from another project, and the leaves were die cut with a Brittania die. I added a pink organza bow to the top corner to finish it off.
So it is welcome to the world for little Ella and congratulations to the new Mum and Dad. My son is also very excited to be a Granddad for the first time and so I also made a card for him and my DIL which I might show you next time. I've got a feeling my next few posts are going to be a bit baby orientated
