It’s a Baby Shower!

Hey there friends! I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I was in the mood for creating and also had a need for a card, so I straightened up my studio and got to work.

We have some friends expecting another child and we were so happy to shower them with love.Baby showers are always fun to me! It’s a great time to fellowship and celebrate new life. So, I made this card to hold a gift card and a special note for the expecting parents.

When I sat down to make this card for the upcoming baby shower, I wanted to design something bright, fun, and just right for a baby boy. There’s something about little jungle animals that screams “I’m perfect for a baby card.” So, I paired Jungle Buddies stamps and dies with Wonderful Words: Baby stamps and dies to create this card.

To start my card, I primed watercolor paper with water. Next, I added some pools of watercolor in different colors (aqua mist + summer sunrise + honey nut).

While waiting for the watercolor to dry, I die cut and stamped all of the jungle animals (lion + elephant + giraffe).

Next, I die cut three “baby” words. I stamped the polka dotted pattern on the top layer to create a pattern. Then, I adhered the three die cuts together, making sure the polka dotted stamped die cut was on top, to create a thick word embellishment.

I used Cover Plate: Mighty Jungle die to cut the palm branches.

I placed everything on the card front to finalize the layout. Before adhering the elements, I stamped “it’s a shower.” Then, I adhered the die cuts in their spots.

Last, I added the watercolor paper onto a card front. The card is an unconventional size, measuring 6.5″ x 5.5″. When hand delivering a card, I usually use glassine bags instead of envelopes, so I am not restricted by envelope sizes.
