This month the theme is “Change of Life Circumstances”. The biggest change in my life was certainly the birth of my daughter … by far the best change of life circumstance for me and a huge learning curve. I have a second grandchild due in November, which is very exciting and that will certainly mean big changes for all the family.
So I have created a baby card in preparation for the new arrival.
Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper has the cutest little woodland animals included in one of the designs. I have fussy cut a selection and made them a feature on this card.
Let’s have a closer look. Cutting each individual critter is time consuming and my advice is to use a good pair of scissors with a fine point like the Stampin’ Up! Paper Snips.
I used Powder Pink spots in the background, which is from Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper, and the circular piece is die cut from one of the designs from Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper using Stitched Shapes Framelits.
The greeting “Hello, Baby …” is from the Baby Bear Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Sky. The texture on the banner in the background is stamped using the Burlap background stamp and Soft Sky ink. And the cute little row of diecut hearts is from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits dies using Calypso Coral cardstock.
I have carried the design over to the inside of the card.
