Howdy! Check out today's card. We have a baby shower at work and I made a card to celebrate the arrival of little baby Nova. I made a Welcome to the World card for him. Here it is:
I also made an envelope for it from a large sheet of colorful blue paper with circles.
The card was made with black shimmery paper. I used an outer space patterned paper for the background. I used Lawn Fawn's Quinn's ABCs to stamp out "Welcome" and "Nova," white embossed them, and fussy cut the letters. I also used Lawn Fawn's Harold's ABCs for the "to the world" sentiment. I used a circle die cut to make the earth from blue suede paper. I had to improvise for the continents - Laurie, our crop instructor at Stampadoodle, suggested I trace with vellum, which I did. I found a map of North and South America on my smart phone, and used the vellum to trace the images, cut it out to create a pattern, and used the pattern to cut out the green suede paper. Worked great! THANKS for the tip Laurie!
I also put a little pearl, since the baby is arriving into the world in the Pacific Northwest! I finished off the card with two strips of glitzy ribbon.
This card was fun to make and I hope the baby and mama enjoy it!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
