Is it me, or does there seem to be lots and lots of pregnant ladies out there at the moment?
Three people I know are pregnant at the moment, with one about to drop any day now! And everywhere I go there are bumps around........
One of the lovely ladies I work with has just found out her friend is expecting, so she asked me to make a card to send her.
I thought I'd give the Baby Grow card a go. I've seen lots of these cards on various sites and think they are so cute.
I used Nursery Suite DSP for the edging, and went with the So Saffron colouring as this is a great neutral colour. I used Whisper White to make an A6 card base and used the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder to give it a lovely texture. I then cut the sides in at an angle and used the 1 3/8" circle punch to make the leg holes and the neck line. I used the same punch on the DSP and then used the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch to get scalloped rings to stick onto the card. The little duck comes from the Every Little Bit stamp set, inked in So Saffron and I used the Aqua Painter to colour it in lightly. Too much water makes the Whisper White card bobble, so use as little as possible just to get a smudge of colour. This was punched and mounted.
I also added a sentiment inside as well, but forgot to take a picture of this. It was from the Bundle of Love stamp set.
I hope your friend likes the card Dee Dee :o)
