Hello! It's Design Team member Apryl with you today. I think that having handmade cards on hand are always a plus. Graphic 45 Precious Memories I Really Want It All Bundle offers a lot of goodies for making cards for all those baby occasions that come up: showers, births, announcements. The bundle includes the 8x8 paper pad and the 6x6 paper pad which are perfect for card makers.
This appears to be an envelope with a card coming out of the top. But in fact it is all part of the card. I made it so from the front, it appears that way, but it really a mock envelope. I attached a heart to the and embellished with the look of paper ribbon bows and a sheer ribbon tied in a bow at the center.
This is a really cute and simple card. And of course, it would be complete with out a little stickling. I used blue distressed Stickles to outline the heart and diamond Stickles to add some sparkle to the flowers in the bottom right hand corner, paper ribbon and the "Welcome" in the "Welcome Little One" sentiment at the top of the card.
The color scheme is a mixture of blues and pinks, so this card can be used for either a boy or a girl. Baby Shower, New Arrival, Birth Announcement? I think this would work for any of those. If you like what you see and want to try it for yourself, or you've been inspired to create your own style of cards using this collection, you can find Graphic 45 Precious Memories at FotoBella.com.
