A friend had a baby this past weekend. I wanted to make a card to celebrate the happy occasion.
I started with an image from the GraphicsFairy. I changed the color to a soft blue and added a cream-colored background before I printed it.
I admit that I am a Basic Grey hoarder. I love their designs and have quite a large stash. This was a great way to use up a bit of the Wisteria pattern paper.
I cut two background pieces of coordinating paper, attached a bow and mounted this to the white card. I die cut the scalloped circle using the Sizzix Clear Die Circle, Scallop so that I could center the paper pattern. I die cut the phrase "Baby Boy" from a Sizzlits die and added that below the ribbon.
Finally I cut the illustration with a circle cutter, centered it within the scalloped circle and adhered it to the top of the card.
Welcome baby Nathaniel!
