Welcome Little One

(click image to enlarge)

This is a card I made for some friends who recently had their second child. I know people don't typically throw a big shower for second (or third) babies, but I thought it was a day worth celebrating.

I wanted to go with a nice girlie color scheme, but not too girlie. I'm not sure I achieved that exactly, but I loved the polka dots. I used my Cricut to cut out the bear. I used a gel pen to go over the mouth and make it stand out, and then added some fun google eyes.

The sentiment was stamped and then hand cut to resemble a flag. I went over the sentiment with a gel pen, to darken it.

I also did a simple weave in the upper left corner, in a small square, to give the card added dimension.
