Hey all! I just wanted to pop by and share a couple of cards that I made for some special people.
My son's teacher and his wife are expecting their first baby soon and so we're having a little class baby shower tomorrow - big surprise that I offered to make a card. I used My How You've Grown Who's That Girl because I absolutely adore the image, and I thought this sentiment was totally appropriate for first time parents. I used Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch and paired it with some MME Stella Rose papers as well as the Stacking Stars and Simply Scallops Die-namics dies. Since we don't know the gender of the baby, I tried to keep it pretty neutral and these papers made it easy.
I tried to keep the inside pretty simple since the kids will be signing their names all over. I used a sentiment from Baby Bump and another Simply Scallops and Stacking Star.
I also needed to make a Congratulations card for a friend. Now you may be fooled by the front - but it really is a congrats card - just look at the inside. I love the sentiments in this Sassy and Sweet stamp set and matching Sweet Stack Labels die set. I used both animal prints on my layers and paired them with Echo Park Be Mine papers and some black rhinestones. Since I had so much pattern going on, I kept the embellishments to a minimum.
See - here's the inside - it is a Congratulations card! I also added a Simply Scallops strip and a flourish from the same Sassy & Sweet set.
Well I'm off! I've been a busy beaver creating for the MFT release. Teasers start tomorrow so be sure to check back!!
