Simple card: Happy Pregnancy



Another simple card -- this one is for a friend who is pregnant with her first child!  

  • I sized this card to fit in a manufactured envelope; it finished at 4-1/4" x 6".  The green mat was 3-3/4" x 5-1/2".  
  • The pink border was cut from Paper Trimmings (page 28) at 3/4".  I trimmed it down to 5-1/4 in length.  I laced it with a 3/16" strip of paper and added pearls.
  • The figure was cut from New Arrival (page 82) at 4".   Her top was embossed.  Her hair was added with ink and a sponge applicator.  I used a Micron pen for small details on the head.  Her hat and body were lightly inked.  She is popped up 3/8".
  • The hearts were cut with a punch.



Thank you for checking my project today!  Many of my previous projects can be found at My Project Gallery (or click here).
