Newborn Congratulations

Newborn Congratulations
Made another baby/newborn congratulations card for an ex-associate who gave birth to a son last mid April 2014.

As the sketch is simple, I used a soft blue pattern paper as the background in which layered on a yellow card base. A yellow corrugated strip is attached onto the pattern paper as in sketch. Then, a strip of orange card stock, a blue gingham ribbon and a negative die cut edge are attached onto the yellow corrugated strip as shown in the sketch.

Close-up : Baby in cloth
A baby in a cloth is stamped on a white circle and colored using Copic markers. Two (2) tiny blush are added to the baby cheek just beside its smile. It looks so adorable with that tiny blush! Some faux stitching are added to the circle lining using a blue gel pen. The circle is then attached onto the card as in the sketch using pop dots to give some dimension.

Close-up : Sentiment
The sentiment is stamped on top of the yellow corrugated strip on the left as in sketch. As final touch, a gem is added to cloth knot.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
Type : Horizontal fold
Inlay : None
