Welcome Mina!! She is my first grandchild and was born at the end of April!! Baby and Mom are doing well. I offered to make baby announcements. I finished them yesterday!!
I stamped the panel card with the SU harlequin background in pink pigment ink for a subtle background and I see that it is barely noticeable on the scan.
I cropped a picture of Mina on the day she was born and laser printed it on heavy copy paper. Mina is colour printed on the frames. I used the SU large tag punch to create the hole in the frame by punching it one way and then reversing and punching out the leftover corners. Easier than cutting them out by hand. After corner rounding I used the same pink to highlight the edges and the stipple background stamp to add a bit of texture to the front. Mounted the photos in the frames.
I created the four tags, colour printed them on white cardstock and punched them out with the 1.25" punch. I layered them onto a 1 3/8" punched shape in pink. Punched a hole at the top and tied in some pink baby yarn. The tags have the baby information - name, date and hour of birth, weight and length and the blog that her Dad created for her photos!!
I colour printed the bottom banner, ripped the top edge, glued the bottom to the panel and punched two holes on the top corners where I tied some white baby yarn. This creates a little pocket for the tags. Very happy with the way this baby announcment worked out!! Much happier that I will be seeing them all in person in just over two weeks. I just know that I am going to love being a grandmother!!!
Have a creative day!!
