A work colleague is having a surprise baby shower tomorrow. This is her first child and it looks like it will be a boy. Guess what I made for her? (lol)
This was a last minute card. I was checking my blogs this morning and saw Lisa's post for Paper Playtime's challenge- use three different patterned papers. I thought "Hey! I have three different patterned papers." ;) Then I saw Craftin' Desert Divas new challenge which is babies. I thought "Hey! I have a baby shower card to make for Friday...perfect!" Then I remembered the email on Friday stating there was a last minute change and it is now Tuesday for the shower. D'OH! So, I went up the the craft room and started at it. Two hours later was this baby shower card. (That is actually very fast for me. I am usually doing laundry or I get distracted by dies and start playing with scrap paper...and then I realize I have been in and out of the craft room for a while.) Anyway, on to the card!
The card is a gatefold (base is 8.5 x 4.25 and then scored at 2 1/8 and 6 3/8). I used Anna Griffin dots and damask paper on the small folded sections. The striped paper is MME's Be Amazing. Ivory paper was die cut from Spellbinders' Stately Circles.
The outside has a die cut stack starting from the bottom: ivory (Stately circles), stripes (Standard Circles LG), ivory (Stately), and dots (Circles LG). The Bundle of Joy sentiment was stamped in Versafine's Vintage Sepia and then embossed in copper. The stamp is from Michaels $1.50 CA ($1 US) bins. Kaisercraft copper pearls were applied. Stickles Waterfall was inserted in the stars. A baby blue bow with a button/twine embellishment was the finishing touch.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great work week and back to school week!
