Another Baby On the Way!

I recently found out that a friend, who I have grown up with since childhood, is expecting her first baby. I wanted to make her a card to show her my excitement for her. As you can probably tell I made the last two cards on the same night. They both have very close to the same feel. I find that is what happens when you can only make so many trips up and down the stairs. You tend to use what you have already dragged up.

I started with last week's sketch from The Sweet Stop. I then turned to my trusty Crumb Cake paper for the base and Stella Rose paper for my pattern paper. I stamped Expecting Bella on some Copic Express paper and coloured her with my copic markers. I cut her out with my Oval Nestabilities and mounted her on some Crumb Cake paper cut with the Scalloped Oval Nestabilitie. I masked my Bella image and then used a sponge and Crumb cake ink to tone down the white of the Copic Express paper. I also ink around the edge with some more Crumb Cake ink. I stitched a zig zig stitch with my sewing machine around the two rectangles. I added three paper flowers to the left lower corner and finished them off with three cream brads from my stash. In the top right corner I added two Bella Blings to finish of the card.

On the inside of the card I stamped one of my favourite baby sentiments with Early Espresso Ink and finished the side of the card with some scraps left over from the front.

I made this post a little early but I do plan to enter it in That's Krafty Thursday over at the Spotted Chick's Blog. I love her That's Krafty Thursday Challenge as all you need to do is use Kraft or Crumb Cake paper somewhere on your card.
