Welcome Baby!


Happy Valentine's Day! We celebrated over the weekend as Shanan has an exam tomorrow. Our low-key Valentine's included curling up on the sofa in comfy new slippers (really, who doesn't love a good pair of slippers?!) pizza and a couple of great movies - it was perfect, hope yours is too!

Recently one of Shan's co-workers had a new baby boy. Baby cards are just the cutest - I'll never pass up the oppourtunity to make one!

The sketch for this card came from Jen's SFYTT for Feburary. The colour combo is from CR84FN15 - I used So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzazz.



I paper pieced the elephant image, cutting out an extra head and popping it up for a little dimension. I love this embossing folder....it gives a gorgeous even texture.


I left lots of room inside for writing a message, just adding in a scrap of the paper used on the front of the card.  Thanks for visiting!


Colour Combo: So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White Stamps: Short & Sweet, Celebrate Everyday (SU) Paper: Spring Fling, Pear Pizzazz DSP (SU) Punches: XL Scallop Circle & Circle (SU) Other: Brads, Circle Scissor Plus, Button, Linen Thread, Square Lattice Embossing Folder (SU)
