Special Delivery

This last week has been one of those weeks….with Sally still needing a lot of care and attention - not to mention waking at all hours still  - and the sad news of our beloved Meg's passing back home in New Zealand... So it was wonderful to hear from our favourite neighbours that their first born son arrived safe and all well on Tuesday. Little Benjamin :-) And so the news called for a special card of course!!
 I had in mind to make a Cascading card and found a good video with measurements to use an A4 sheet of card stock here.

And here is the card:

A fun card to make and give :-)
It uses two baby sets that I have quickly grown to love in the new Catalogue: Baby We've Grown and Something For Baby. Also Blendabilities markers were used to colour both images on the front panel and the gorgeous Lullaby DSP is used throughout the card layers.

The cute washing line posts were stamped with the Hardwood background stamp and cut and added to the back of the card - there is also a white layer on one of the back panels to write the message on :-)
Mini clothes pegs hold up the wash items on the Hemp Twine line.

Card stop: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Lullaby
Inks: Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Lost Lagoon, Sahara Sand, also Coastal Cabana and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers
Stamps: Baby We've Grown, Something For Baby, Hardwood
Accessories: Big Shot, Starburst, Banner and Baby's First Framelits, Hemp Twine, Miniature clothes pegs (Non SU) and Blue sequins (non SU)

Such a fun card to celebrate the arrival of a special new family member :-) 

Happy stamping until next time,

    1. Thank you so much Katerina! Yes, the card went down well :-) I had forgotten but it actually matches the Nursery's colours too so well done on the DSP SU!
