Welcome Little One

I have some wonderful news to share with you today, my new nephew arrived on Saturday! Both him and my SIL are doing well and he is oh so cute! They have named him Ben :) Here is the card I made for them. I saw this amazing card by the super talented Nichol Magouirk and knew I had to CASE it.

I first took a piece of Bazzill Icy Mint CS to make it into the card base. I then made some clouds using the ME Landscape Border die from white CS, these were added to a panel of vellum which was cut using the ME Femme Frames rectangle die. I added one to the back and one to the front. I have then stamped and heat embossed the PTI sentiment to the vellum layer.

The monkey and umbrella images from the ME Up & Away set have been stamped and then coloured with Copics. I used the co-ordinating dies and cut them out. They have been added to the panel with foam tape. I have then adhered the panel to the card base and added a few accents cut from the ME Confetti die.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you are all doing well, have a lovely day!
