Hi Crafty Friends,
Someone I know is going to become a Grandma for the first time in December, her daughter is having a baby boy. Of course I wanted to make a special card to give to her to celebrate the event.
I recently purchased this gorgeous Special Delivery Edger from Creative Expressions, so of course I decided to use that to create my card. This great thing about this die is that it can be used to create cards in various sizes including Slimline cards, which is what I created for my card today.
I used papers from Craft Consortium's Ink Drops - Vivid 12 x 12 Paper Pad to add the papers on the front and inside of my card.
I splattered white pearl paint to the white area of the card, masking off the stork and baby.
To finish off the front of the card I added the "Grandma" sentiment die from Cottage Cutz, which I believe is now retired.
For the inside of the card I created a pop-up card using Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set.
I used Dare 2B Artzy's Curve Slimline Border Die set to add the borders to both edges of the card.
On the bottom left label, I added a baby using Marianne's Design Eline's Baby die & coordinating stamp set. The "It's A Boy" sentiment is also from this stamp set.
For the sentiments on the top right label, I used older sentiments from two MFT Stamp sets.
