Congratulations on Your Newborn!

Congratulations on Your Newborn!
I am officially an aunty now as my nephew just delivered via Caesarean section. I am so happy and proud for my brother and sister-in-law. To cherish this special moment, I want to make a card to congratulate them. It will be passed to them tomorrow when I visit them with a small gift for the little one.

I stamp the baby image into a white circle and colored it with Copic markers. Then, I distress the edge and the white space to match the color of the card base. It is then attached onto a blue shaded scallop square. I purposely attach the circle in another direction so that the scallop square can be attached onto the card base in different direction as well.

Close-up : Embossed Sentiment
For the sentiment, I stamp twice diagonally on the left upper corner and right bottom corner. Since I started to apply embossing technique on my last card, I am kind of addict to it. Thus, for this card, I did the same for the sentiments as well - embossing!

Close-up : Image
Before attaching the scallop square onto the card base, I coordinate some silver strings to the four (4) corners of the scallop square. The outcome is nice as it looks like a square frame to the circle and image. Some gems are added to right upper corner and left bottom corner to fill up the empty space.

Congratulations on Your Newborn! - Inside
A light shaded blue cardstock is used as stick on inlay as the card base blue is a bit too dark for writing message. I stamp some border sentiments onto the left upper corner and right bottom corner.

Dimension : 9.4cm x 10.16cm or 3.7" x 4"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : Yes with stamped sentiment and image
