baby card


Happy Monday!  Playing along with the new PTI Make It Monday challenge.  Team "blue" (i.e. my boys) are rooting for a new baby boy cousin (who cross our fingers will arrive later today), so in honor of that excitement I've made a baby card.  If it's a girl, I'll remake the card in pink :)  Laurie's video is about using the negatives from the PTI cover plates and I added some to the soft grey card stock then splattered the card base with some metallic blue water color and then die cut out the panel with the Lil Inker stiched frame mat.  B/c we all know I'm a tag junkie, I used the PTI Tiny Tags and Tremendous Tags, some May Arts burlap string and 1/4 inch chevron twill ribbon and added a vellum PTI Half and Half die, Studio Calico wood stars and then added a piece of May Arts 2 1/2 inch cotton blend ribbon for the background.  Just thinking of me nervously awaiting the big news while I fold laundry at the Outside Inn today....
