|Simple Baby card featuring the Letter It alphabet set.|
Thursday, June 14, 2012
I'm back at designing over-sized cards again! This time they are for babies...or at least baby showers. There is a bit of a baby boom on our staff at school and I have been charged with making the cards for each of the moms-to-be. Again, they have to be big cards to allow for about 30 or so signatures, so I am working with a much larger canvas than usual. Today I have the first design for you. This mom doesn't know what she's having so I tried to keep it somewhat gender-neutral. Have a look...
Pretty simple, eh? I liked the idea of doing a banner using the Letter It alphabet set. I also used a couple of retired products on this card: Nursery Nest DSP (from last year's catty) and the mini clothespins. I really loved those little things but found them a wee bit large to use on a standard-sized card. Not so with a jumbo one...they are just perfect! I drew my colour scheme from the DSP: Pear Pizzazz (miss that In-Colour!), Perfect Plum and Blushing Bride (miss that one too!). I hung my little banner from some white baker's twine and popped up both the banners and the letters with dimensionals. I hope the recipient of this card likes it...she is part of my monthly Inky Paws club that I run at work, so I know she'll appreciate the work that goes into a handmade card!
