Card for Baby



My pastor and his wife just had their fourth child (and first girl!) a couple of days before Thanksgiving, so I made this card using the High Hopes Challenge #9 sketch. I am in short supply of image stamps, so I did my best to create an image for the focal point of this card. Overall, I'm happy with the results.

To get the shaded effect of the grass I stamped the image once, then immediately stamped again to leave the lighter impression. I also lined the inside of the card with the same plaid I used on the front.

Thanks for stopping by for a look. If you'd like to be updated each time I post, why not follow me? You can do that on the right side of my blog!

Hi Cheri, Thought I would pop over here to answer your question. I made my own "lighbox" out of a cardboard box and an old artograph lightbox (the kind you can trace with) I put the lightbox on the top section (which is cut away so the light shines through) of my box and turn it on and it brightens up my area. (I covered the inside of the box with white poster board)hth! Julie
