I was invited to a baby shower for my nephew's wife and their expected son. Of course, I had to make a card!
I chose Wonderful Moments for this card:
I love how elegant the pearls on the centers of the Tufted 3D embossing folder make this card look!
I started with a base of Whisper White Thick card stock cut at 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 4-1/4". The Balmy Blue layer is 5-1/4" x 4" and is embossed using the Big Shot (BTW, the Big Shot is being retired--I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! comes up with for embossing and die cutting!) with the Tufted 3D embossing folder. Next, I took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock (I love to use this for watercoloring as it is a little thicker than regular cardstock and holds up well to light amounts of water) and stamped the image using Stazon ink. Using a dry Aquapainter and the inks from my ink pads (plus a little water I keep in a jar on my desk), I colored the image of the pregnant woman. I then die cut that image using the Layering Ovals dies. I adhered that image to the front of the card using dimensionals and then added the small pearls.
For the inside:
I took another piece of Balmy Blue and cut it out with the Stitched Rectangles and cut out a smaller piece of whisper white using a size smaller rectangle. I stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and added the small gift bag to the bottom left. I colored that gift bag in with Balmy Blue Blends. There is a small break in the top of the gift bag (to fit into the hands of one of the images in the stamp set) so I put a larger pearl in that space.
