A Gift For Baby--FMS193

July 3, 2015

It's a raining day in Georgia, so I found a little time to play in my craft room.

I am using the sketch by Freshly Made Sketches today.  I needed a baby card for a special new arrival, so this sketch gave me just the inspiration that I needed.  I also used the colors of the babies nursery.

I used the "Bundle of Joy" stamp set by SugarPea Designs for my card today.  I colored the stork and baby with Copic Markers and fussy cut the image.

I cut a rectangle from Doodlebug's Patriotic Picnic and adhered it on the card.  A Whisper White panel was attached next and then another rectangle of the blue was placed on the left side.  I also cut a small rectangle of a different pattern to place on top of the other blue rectangle.  A Pumpkin Pie border was cut using MFT Blueprint die.  I used foam tape to adhere the stork and the baby.

The sentiment was stamped with black Versa Fine ink.  It was heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  White Baker's Twine was wrapped around the card and tied in a bow.  I also attached a button with a glue dot after threading it with the twine.  Three Pumpkin Pie candy dots were added for fun.

Wishing you a wonderful holiday weekend!
