A coworker of mine gave birth to a beautiful baby boy a few weeks ago. A little peanut with a full head of hair, he is seriously so cute!
I was asked to make this custom card, inspired by this one, for people at work to sign to welcome little baby Francis.
I used Neat & Tangled Journaling Alpha dies which I LOVE. I inked up the bottom half of each letter with some Versamark ink and then added some Liquid Platinum embossing powder over the ink and heat embossed the letters. I also cut the same letters from fun foam and mounted my heat embossed letters on top, to give a bit of dimension. I stamped the rest of the sentiment in SSS Intense black ink using the Simon Says Stamp Celebrate stamp set.
I also die cut the panel using the a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. Before I adhered the panel to my card base, I added some patterned paper (from a Studio Calico kit I purchased ages ago) to the card base. I also piped a bead of Liquid Pearls in the color onyx around the outer edge of the sentiment panel, to separate it from the patterned paper a bit.
The card needed a bit of something else, so I added a few copper-colored chip board (I think?) stars to finish it off.
I hope Francis liked his card!
