A Special Baby Shower Card

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is not for any challenge - it is for my niece's baby shower. Baby J is due in July, and unfortunately, I can't make it to the shower this weekend, but I've sent a gift and this card to my sister to pass along. The card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest by Australian demonstrator Bussakorn Mpelasoka. You can see her beautiful creations here.

I absolutely love this stamp set! :) I think I'll probably end up making a framed art piece for the nursery with the other big stamp, but this one is perfect for the shower. The nursery colors are blue, gray, and white, but Baby J is a girl, so I had to add a touch of pink as well. I stamped all of the images, except for the clouds, with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them in using a blender pen. The lamb is fussy cut and popped up with dimensionals, and there is a touch of Clear Wink of Stella on the stars. Someday I'll figure out how to photograph that so it shows! The clouds are from the Lift Me Up stamp set, stamped off with Marina Mist and cut out with the Up & Away Thinlits. I pulled out a package of an old Sale-A-Bration DSP to make the envelope liner. I don't often line my envelopes, but with the large stash of DSP in my craft room, I should start!

I'm looking forward to meeting Baby J later this summer, and I hope my niece likes the card. I know she appreciates my work - I made her wedding invitations just a few years ago.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
