I hope you had a great weekend. On Saturday, we loaded our car to the gills and took our oldest son back to school to begin his Sophomore year. Having the whole family together for a road trip – Priceless! Next, our younger son starts his senior year in high school tomorrow. So we are on the brink of new beginnings.
A dear colleague at work became a grandmother last week and I created this card to accompany a gift I got her to celebrate her new beginning.
I just received my recent Stampin' Up! order with the new circle thinlits and could not wait to get them out to create this card. I don't have baby stamps so I used this cute lizard from the Tag It stamp set to celebrate the arrival of this new life. Then I added a few hearts from Hearts a Flutter stamp set to convey the love that must be bursting from my colleague's heart.
When you create the standard thinlit card you need a piece of card stock 5 1/2" by 6". I saw another demonstrator extend the card stock to 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" leaving the extra paper outside of the thinlit. See below:
This allowed me to create a standard card opening with space to write and express my congratulations. Here is the inside:
I am not sure if the card is too busy or not. What do you think?
