I’ve been anticipating the arrival of a very special little new Gemini…A very dear friend of mine is expecting and her due date is just around the corner. Actually, it just so happens to be on her very own birthday! Which means, the little one will join our little circle of Geminis.
I can’t tell you how happy it makes me that they are welcoming this brand new little addition to their family.
This is the card I created for them.
I used a few different pastel colors on the card since the baby’s gender will be a surprise. I wanted to add in a touch of blue – in case it is a boy, a touch of pink- in case it’s a little girl, and a touch of yellow – just for good measure.
All of the papers are from the Vintage Spring Basics collection (3rd of March, 4th of May, Days to Remember), and the rest of the supplies are items I have die-cut.
I covered the base of the white card with a soft pink print, followed by a little pocket I die-cut using the WPlus9 Vintage Envelope Die. Inside, I tucked two tickets, both cut out of the Days to Remember paper from Maja Design. I adorned the tags with sparkly buttons, hemp ribbon, and a handmade clay button.
I wanted to add a flower to this card, but didn’t want it to be too girly, so I offset the floral layers – cut with PTI’s Lovely Layers Die – with a cute little birdie. Birdies can be masculine, right?
I added three little pennants, some punched paper, hemp ribbon, and a stamped sentiment from the Purls of Wisdom stamp set from Papertrey Ink.
Supplies: Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics Collection (3rd of March, 4th of May, Days to Remember), White Cardstock, Papertrey Ink Dies (Lovely Layers), WPlus9 Dies (Vintage Envelope), Papertrey Ink Stamps (Purls of Wisdom), Buttons, Ribbon, and String from my stash.
Now I just need to patiently await the arrival of little baby…Oh its so very hard to be patient for such an exciting occasion, but I will do my very best.
Hope you are all having a great week thus far.
Ivana that is so sweet! Love your flower and the fussy cutting.
