BABY SHOWER CARD

Here's the baby shower card I made for  my niece.  She had the baby on the Tuesday after we had the shower on Sunday.  We almost had a baby at the shower.  We really cut it close.  She was a few weeks early, but the baby is fine.

This is an A2 size card cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" from blue card stock and folded in half.  The blue plaid and patterned paper are from DCWV Nursery boy.  I punched the corners of the patterned paper with my Fiskars corner punch. The bunny is cut from the Cricut Sampler cartridge at 2".  The shadow was cut from the blue card stock and the top layer was cut from the plaid.  I used a scrap of pink for the ears and tail.
I used a black gel pen to stitch around the image and drew his eye free hand.  I tied a piece of sheer green ribbon with white polka dots from Offray around the patterned paper and secured it to the blue plaid paper.

Inside the card I used blue ink to stamp It's a Boy using a stamp I have had for a long time.  I don't remember who its made by.  I have been using it for scrapbook pages for years.


So there you have it.  I noticed on my last post my pictures were not very good quality.  Also they were not oriented correctly.  It made them difficult to view.  I have been having techno difficulty with my computer and posted my last post from my mobile phone.  I think this page looks much better.  I'm learning as I go.

I have to confess I bought Blogging for Dummies and it has really helped.  I was finally able to grab a badge from Emma at My Creative Time.  I am going to attempt to link this to her blog.  Hope it works.

As always I appreciate any comments or suggestions. I would like some input considering my choice of font.  Is it difficult to read?  I like the way it looks but maybe it needs to be plainer.  Give me some feedback.

Enjoyed sharing this card with you.  Now that I have my computer back I'll be posting more often.  Until we blog again take care.  Bye Bye
