My friends, Beth & Greg, had a new baby boy in February (welcome, Baby Declan!) and I'm finally getting around to sending them a gift & a card. I konw, it's pretty sad, but this way, it stretches out the gift giving. ;)
We got him an adorable striped polo onesie and I made a card to coordinate with it. I decided to use this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Step it up: Layering in making the two cards, as well as this week's Monday with Melis Challenge, which was to create a card using the following:
1. A new to you style.
2. A cupcake or something sweet (cherries, pie, cake, candy, etc.).
4. A background stamp.
For my "new to me style" I decided to go very CAS, with some masking & colouring with watercolour pencils (things I don't do very often.) Here's my card:
So for my "step-it-up", I added some patterned paper, a few different colours & some dies & paper-piecing. I also used Sketch #7 from Sketchbook 4.
So, which one do you like better?
Thanks for looking!
