Welcome Little One!

Recently, neighbours of ours, a young couple, welcomed their second child...a cute little baby boy.
I don't know his name as yet and I haven't been introduced for Aunty Michelle cuddles however, I decided to make them a card to celebrate his arrival.

I loved making this as it was a nice change from Christmas Cards!

I hadn't played with this stamp set yet from the Annual Catalogue and so I decided to CASE the card featured in the catalogue on page 108.

Of course being a boy, I chose a traditional boys color, used a generic embossing folder that would be suitable for either a boy or girl card and paired it with a neutral color Sahara Sand.

Then I set about wet embossing the stamped image..I stamped it with Versamark and then applied Silver Embossing Powder and Heat Set.
As a last minute decision, I decided to color the lions frills with the Sahara Sand Stampin' Write marker just to give him a little something.
I'm not much of a colourer so I didn't want to color all of him otherwise I think it would have been too much against the blue background.
I also didn't want to introduce too many new colors.

Can you tell I LOVE the Stitched Shapes Framelits?? lol
I think I have used them on every project for the last 2 weeks!!
They are so classy and I really do love the look.
The sentiment is from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set - one of my favourites for sentiments as it has everything.

I hope they liked my card. I can't wait to meet the little man.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my project today.
A full list of items used to make this card features below.

Until next time
Happy Stamping! (tap tap tap)
