Welcome, Baby!

Happy New Year!

It’s been a very happy New Year on our cul de sac. Our sweet neighbors just had their third child; their first baby boy! To congratulate and celebrate them, I made this card and gift, based on a card I saw by Kay Kalthoff:

welcome-baby

Tips and Tricks

White on White: A classic look that I love. Raising the panel gives it depth without adding a layer of colored cardstock.

SCORE! It’s really easy to make a big impact when you use the Simply Scored Scoring Tool to highlight a panel. Here I just scored two lines on each side of the raised panel to add some detail.

Similar but Different: I wanted the notecards for the new mom to be similar to the congratulations card, but, obviously, I wanted to use a different sentiment. This “thank you” is from the All Things Thanks stamp set in the new Occasions catalog. Lots of great fonts and sayings!

Thanks for stopping by today!
