Baby Shower

Good afternoon. I'm back again with another card that was made about two weeks ago. My teammate at work (and the teacher I share a wall with a door) is having a baby in February. She's my age and we have become great friends over the last year, so I jumped all over the opportunity to make the cards for the shower the first grade team is throwing for her next month.

She mentioned her colors for the baby's room are brown and green, but said they had no theme for their little boy. Therefore, I went with a really basic, nice and general card with lots of green and brown. I pulled out my Scattered Showers set from PTI and got cranking. I had to make a little over 50 of these cards, so simplicity was the name of the game. I cut out (Yes, cut! Am I crazy?! I really need to get the die for this set...) all of the umbrella tops and popped them up. I added some chunky glitter to the bottom of the umbrella as well as to the scallops. I also clear embossed the sentiment. Some quick sewing machine action across the bottom, and done! Well, then multiply by 50 and then done! These have officially gone out to the staff and we're excited to celebrate this new addition to our staff family!

OK. Back to report cards (and maybe a little stamping in between). Have a wonderful afternoon! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper- Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate, Turning a New Leaf dp, Whisper White
