Mommy to Be


Happy Monday!  I have a post that I'm sharing over at My Creative Time today.  A friend of mine is expecting her first baby in June, and I've been meaning to make a card for her.  She knows she's having a boy, so I used patterned paper from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy:  Boy, which you can find at Liz's Paper Loft Boutique!  I took a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece of patterned paper and adhered it to the front of a white card base.  The scalloped kraft piece was leftover from another project I did.  It came from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge, and I stamped it with a background stamp from My Creative Time's Spring Chicken Backgrounds.  Then I added a strip of patterned paper cut with my ekSuccess Zig Zag Punch to the bottom.


This cute pregnant lady is cut from the Cricut New Arrival cartridge at 4 1/2".  I added a little flower to her hat with Papertrey Ink's Man & Wife Dies, along with a couple of Imaginisce i-Rock gems.


My sentiments are from MCT's Chocolate Greetings, stamped on banners made with the die included in this set.
