Welcome Baby Max
Today's card was made for an important little man . . . baby Max, whom my sweet, darling Step Daughter gave birth to at 03:23 BST and was a healthy, 8lb 1oz . . . unfortunately they live over two hundred miles away, so it will be a little while before we meet him, but we will receive plenty of photos and minute by minute updates!
I kept the card CAS and used an adorable stamp and die set that I bought in honour of the occasion. It is Stampin' Up's 'Made With Love' . . . so apt!
I stamped the little baby-grow on to patterned paper and cut it out with the matching die. I stamped the sentiment on the front of the baby-grow. Then I ran around the edges and filled in the letters with a yellow, glitter gel pen. I then embossed a white card front with a linen EP and adhered some plain twine across the front - for a washing line - added two mini clothes pegs to the die cut and adhered it down firmly to the front of the card (first, clipping it to the twine).
I made it in yellow and grey, because it was made in advance, ready to send when the baby made it's appearance and nobody knew the sex (the parents didn't want to know, they wanted it to be a surprise) and I wanted to get it into the post immediately the baby was born!
So, here are the rest of the pictures.
As you can see, I sponged lightly through the negative of the die cut (not very smoothly I'm afraid) stamped the sentiment and then ran around the outside edge of the sponged image with a fine liner.
I hope you are all having a marvellous Easter weekend! Until the next time, happy crafting! Hazel xx
