Lots of baby news at the moment!! My lovely friends Natalie and Chris have recently welcomed their beautiful daughter Esme into the world!! They already have two adorable little boys and this little girl just perfectly completes their family!! She was absolutely convinced that she was having a boy and so i just had to make a PINK card to welcome the new arrival!!!
This baby grow card has been made from some 'Whisper White' card, folded along the top and then i used the '1-3/8" Circle Punch' and the '1-3/4" Circle Punch' to create the head and legs holes!! (There are several tutorials online to follow how to make this cardbase.) I punched out some 'Scallop Circles' from some 'Regal rose' dotty 'DSP' and then punched a hole in the centre to create the scalloped edge around the head and legs! I stamped the rubber duck image (using 'Basic Black' ink) from the wonderfully versatile stampset: 'Easy Events', i coloured it in using 'Bashful Blue', 'So Saffron', 'Pumpkin Pie' and 'Regal Rose' 'Stampin' Write Markers'. I punched the image out using the '1-3/8" Circle Punch'. I stamped the umbrella out again onto another piece of 'Whisper White', coloured it in, cut it out and then raised it using a 'dimensional' to create a 3D effect! I layered this onto a 'Scallop Circle' punched from some more 'Regal Rose' 'DSP' and glued onto the centre of the babygrow! Finally i placed three 'Basic Pearls' along the bottom to create poppers. And there you go one lovely baby card! Welcome to the world baby Esme - can't wait to have a cuddle!!
