well one of my earlier posts a few months back now! - was a little well done to my 'baby' sis - to wish her success in her new job - and now it's 'congratulations' alround again - she has just become a grandmum .. to baby Esme..
...so from the baby shower and this - of course I just had to make a card to welcome the new arrival... and as a final gift to her parents I finished a birth quilt in keeping with the rest - scroll down if you would like to see the end result.
but.. back to my card here.. I have stuck with the very popular 'baby-tees on a line' as my theme in a variety of pink designer series papers (all be it all long since retired - but never one to throw anything out - still had scraps lurking in my scraps envelope...
so here we are :
I used a piece of 'Lucky stars' embossed cardstock for my base, easily done with my Big Shot, matted this on a layer of pink DSP, die cut the baby-tees and coat hangers using the Baby's First Framelits set all suspended from a banner-like piece of linen thread.
My 'Congratulations' sentiment came from the 'Something to Say' stamp set in Melon Mambo to tie in with the overall pink colour scheme, popped up on dimensionals for a bit of lift.
The inside I kept to the same colourway for my stamping and used another two related stamps from the same 'Something to Say' set .. and no girl, well not me anyway, could be without her little bits of embellishment, easily sorted with the addition of a bit of sponging and my beloved 3 toning candy dots.. I just love these and have them in all the colourways, ready for instant glam up!
so hello and welcome to my beautiful beautiful great-niece - Esme..
