This is the card I had made in advance to give to my daughter. We already knew the baby was a girl.
It's an easel card but the the stand up topper is smaller than the base. I used a card blank for the base so that the card still opens and has a verse inside. I covered the front of the card base with pearlescent card and layered a patchwork paper from Bearly Mine. I used my Lace Doily Corner die from Whimsy Stamps around the edges which I coloured with Distress Inks Spun Sugar and Antique Linen and added pearls. The leaf flourish dies are from Cheery Lynn.
I needed the perfect topper for my card. I looked everywhere for just the right image but couldn't find what I wanted so I got out my pencil and drew this image. After some helpful advice from Lexie, I turned my drawing into a digi which I coloured with my Polychromos.
I printed the sentiments on the computer and coloured them with the Distress Inks. The ends are extra pieces from the lace die cuts. The roses are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.I'm very pleased to say that both mum and baby are doing well and we are all looking forward to a lot less drama in the future. Thank you for your patience with me and I hope to get back to visiting your blogs shortly.
