New Baby Boy..(coming soon)


I think my sister must have started a trend because my cousin Haley just found out that she is going to have a boy too! BTW does this card look familiar? It's for Beate's WSC, not to mention it looks almost exactly like her example-does she EVER make ugly cards?!?! I sure haven't seen one. Now, for the card...The card base is a 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 piece of Basic grey cardstock folded in half. The horizontal strip of certainly celery dsp measures 3 x 4 and was matted onto a 3 1/8 x 4 1/8 strip of whisper white cardstock. I stamped a whole sheet of bashful blue card stock with SU's sweet stars wheel. I then cut a vertical strip of bashful blue to 1 3/4 x 4 1/8 . For the main image I stamped the hippo from Pun Fun onto a 2" square of watercolor paper. After I watercolored him, I added a bashful blue bow.

SUPPLIES:
Stamps: sweet stars, pun fun Paper: basic grey, bashful blue, whisper white, certainly celery dsp Ink: basic grey, bashful blue, certainly celery, soft sky (used as a shadow) Accessories: nesties, bashful blue grosgrain.

Beautiful card, Amanda!
Yes, I make ugly cards, but I don't share those on my blog. LOL
