Congratulations


Hi there! I made a baby card a long time ago with this adorable elephant on it, and I had a request to do two neutral congratulations baby cards with the same layout. Here's post with the original card http://papercraft-designs.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/happy-new-baby.html
I loved doing these in yellow and green. Baby cards are my favourites, but they're great to see in other colours beside pink and blue!

Ink: Momento - Tuxedo Black. Versamark
Cardstock: Copic - X-Press It. Stampin Up - Dazzling dimaonds, Vellum

Accessories: Stampin Up - Ribbon, buttons, white embossing powder, & twine. Papertrey ink - clear dots. Elizabeth Craft Designs congratulations die. Pretty Pink Posh stitched banner duo die. Sewing machine

Welcome Baby




Please excuse the craft table background in this photo. I made this for a friend and it was gone before I was able to photograph it properly! Now this card started out as a bit of a mess, I was using some inks to smooch that ended up turning out WAY too bright and overpowering. But I decided to spray some white ink quite heavily over it and I love the way it turned out. I would normally only spray once or twice onto a card but this was several times and the effect was great. Aside from that I kept it super simple, and who can resist a bit of felt on a baby card!

Stamps: Lawn Fawn - Plus One
Ink: Tim Holtz - Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade. Momento - Tuxedo Black. Hero Arts - Unicorn White spray
Cardstock: Stampin Up - Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Vellum. Tim Holtz - Watercolour paper
Colouring Tools - Copic markers
Accessories: Taylored Expressions - Pink felt. Spotlight - Sequins
