Hello Baby!

Leave a comment

A coworker is going to have a baby soon, and I was responsible to make a card for her. I pulled out a lot of old stuff to create this card (just realized I don’t have many stamp sets I could use to make cards for kids/babies, time for more shopping!). I swear I have seen that little monkey hanging off a tree branch being done by someone somewhere, but unfortunately I don’t know where so I can’t tag the original source…

A few things used in this card can still be found in the current catalog:

  • The tree branch is a cutout from the Little Leaves Sizzlits Die. I have “engineered” the cutout to make it longer (by cutting a little branch of two leaves and putting it at the end).

  • The “Hello” and “baby” word images came from the Tiny Tags set. The “Hello” image was colored using the Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise Stampin’ Write Markers. They were then punched out using the Medium Jewelry Tag.
  • I added texture to the Whisper White background by dry embossing the cardstock with the Square Lattic Embossing Folder.
