Welcome Nova (02/17/2012)

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!
