Welcome to the World ~ John David!

Oh Happy Morning!!!

My sister in law Amy had her baby this morning and boy am I excited!

I've been making baby cards all week, thinking of them, but felt especially inspired when I saw this morning's sketch challenge over on Sweet Sunday and after hearing the good news!

This one is heading with us to the hospital! So ~ I've got quite a few layers going on here! I used the Springtime Vintage DSP.

Here we go with some measurements:
Base: 10 1/2 x 5 1/4" scored and folded in half at 5 1/4"
Layer 2: Very Vanilla 4 7/8" square
Layer 3: Blue Floral DSP 4 3/4" square
Layer 4: 1 x 5 1/4" strip
Layer 5: 3 1/8" x 4 1/8 wild wasabi
Layer 6: 3 x 4" Floral DSP
Layer 7: Scalloped Circle die cut (wasabi)
Layer 8: Large clear Circle die cut from the big shot.
Layer 9: Wasabi cardstock 2 7/7 x 3 3/8"
Layer 10: 2 3/4" x 3 1/4" with the onsie cut out and mounted on top of the carriage so it would pop up
Layer 11: Scallop oval punch
Stamps Sets Used:
120576 Baby Bundle, clear mount
120528 A word for you, clear mount

I used the masking technique for all the items in the carriage with the baby.

To get the shimmer paper just right, I stamped on the back and cut it out, then just pasted it onto my card.

I'm so excited to meet John David this afternoon!

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
