Parents to Be!

Today's technique challenge on SCS was to make a Cami Trifold Card. My daughter's best friend is expecting her 1st baby any time now and is having a baby shower soon, so I decided to make my card into a card that my daughter could give to her friend at the shower.

As they do not know whether the baby will be a boy or a girl ........ I went with a neutral color for the card ...... I like this background paper and it goes sooo well with Sage Shadow and the circles in the paper kind of relate to the bubbles in the bath.

After I had made the basic card I had to decide what to use as the greeting, I wanted something to fill the length of the panel if possible ...... I have one of those multi stamps (like the old style date stamps) with 12 different baby related greeting on it, so I decided to use that ........ 2 I put on the front of the card as I thought that was appropriate there and the rest I put on the inside as you can see by the photo above. I had to add the question mark to both the its a girl/its a boy greetings - seeing we don't know as yet! The ribbon was originally white, I colored it with my alcohol marker to get the color I wanted.

Hopefully my daughter and her friend will like it!

Alright, now this is one amazing card! LOVE it! I love the way the scallop punch can be a nice border when you punch the middle out!
