I always get so excited creating cards to celebrate new life! I can't wait to get the above card out in the mail!
The focal point of this card is the layered square scallop with the sentiment on it. Focal points do not always have to be in the middle. I set this one apart from the rest by using 3D foam tape to add dimension and create shadowing. I am entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Blog Challenge to show "Focal Point". You can play along too!
I LOVE this sentiment from the "New Arrival" Stamp Set from Close to my Heart. This sentiment was the reason I HAD to buy this stamp set. It just melts my heart and sums up what it feels like to be a new parent or grandparent.
The photo from the Inspired By #37 challenge was my inspiration for color and texture.
I used the design on this sketch to create my card by. I found it on The Sweet Step Sketch Challenge Blog. The spin on this sketch was to use die cuts or punches. I used square punches and a scallop square I cut on my cricut with the Art Philosophy cartridge from Close to my Heart.
