New Baby!

Hi there!

My daughter asked me to make a baby card for a friend who will soon be a new mommy. She doesn't know if it will be pink or blue, and seeing that I came up with an idea I like, and a real quick and easy one too... I made a pink one & a blue one , and will add the remaining one to my stash!


Close up:


... and in pink:


Up close:



The stork is a cutting file by Tanya Batrak in the Silhouette store: Design ID #128780.

I cut it twice for each card, in order to give it more weight/dimension.

To balance the design and add color, I added a thin strip of 'patterned paper' which is available as a fill option in the Silhouette studio,
The sentiment is my own and I will share it below , as I always do :)




Adding my link to the following challenges:

Less is more ~ New Beginnings

&

Inkspirational  ~ Flutter ( remembering the first fluttering of an unborn baby 👶)

Thanks for visiting me today!

Hugs
Hannelie

I adore these, Hannelie. The white on white is so delicate and the polka dot strips add the perfect balance. The hearts are wonderfully placed too with the colour peeking through.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
