Stampin' Up! - Made With Love

Hello, I made this card this afternoon for my very good friend Wendy whose daughter Clare recently had a little boy (brother to the gorgeous Harry).

Isn't he cute?  Doesn't he look peaceful - I hope it lasts!  As yet, he has no name :( but at least I could make a card to welcome him to the World!

UPDATED 20.6.16 - he has a name!! Welcome to the world Charlie :)

Harry very kindly let me play with his Play Doh a few weeks ago and, if I am lucky, perhaps I will be allowed to have a cuddle with his new brother too next time he comes to visit his Nanny!

This is the colour scheme I decided to use:

I have to say that I am loving the new Dapper Denim In Colour - so many combinations to play with!

I decided to use a stamp set called Made With Love - one that has never been off my shelf until now ... but it was just what I needed for this occasion.

I added a bit of a splatter from Gorgeous Grunge (love it still) and I scuffed up the edges to add some texture.  I still wasn't quite happy with it,  so I added a layer of vellum behind my image panel for a bit of contrast.

Here is the completed card and envelope:

I stamped the envelope to match and also an insert with scuffed edges.  I used the Washi Label punch for my sentiment (now retired) but you could leave the edges straight or 'flag' them.
