A Baby Girl Card…. and wait it’s baseball season again?
It sneaks up on me every single year. Maybe it’s because my husband does such a great job remembering the spikes and pants and special socks (thanks!), that I just forget about it.
All of the sudden, it’s that time again, and we’re up at the fields hearing that “tink” sound.
The shows go on though. I have one coming up in May, and more after that. In the midst of procrastinating preparing, I had the opportunity to make a card for a little girl in my class who just became a big sister for the first time.
This baby pram image is from The Graphics Fairy. The pink and orange colors are so perfect for a baby girl.
I printed the image onto vellum paper which is very smooth. Printer ink will smear, so I had my clear embossing powder and heat gun at the ready. Yes, that is my keyboard. Yes, my shift key is melted a little bit. Thanks for asking.
When the paper came out of the printer, I quickly shook the clear embossing powder over it. I put the excess back into the container, and held the heat gun underneath to melt the powder, but not blow it off the paper.
I was left with a lovely embossed image to make my card with. I added some off white card stock, sweet tiny pink buttons and a little “welcome” that I sketched using my Silhouette.
I stamped this onto the back with a pretty chalk ink for the final touch.
Thanks for joining me on my break!
