this one was for my brand spankin' new nephew (very first one, too!!!) & his mama, my older sister. she is a big reason i started scrapbooking in the first place, so she deserves more random cards than a lot of other people. i always fancy up the envelopes the cards go in (since almost all my cards are mailed - also why i don't embellish much). i used the same heart stamp on both the card & envelope and just masked off areas to get the look i wanted. the paper is one 12x12 double sided sheet. those make it easy to coordinate. i stamped the sentiment using my new Paper Smooches Chit Chat set and fussy cut the 'smooches' to add a smidge of dimension since it was on white.
this one was for a friend of mine that recently had their first child as well. they kept the name a secret until he was born, so i wanted to highlight that on the card. masculine cards are so difficult! i would rather girly everything up... but it's nice to have a challenge once in a while.
|obviously, i need a better camera, so bear with me until santa brings me one. ;)|
