Proud Grandparents Card


Good morning,

It's very soggy and wet here this morning from so much rain yesterday. I think we are due more rain today so it may be an indoors kind of day!

My work colleague recently became a grandparent for the first time and she's been so excited about her little grandson I wanted to make her a card to celebrate his arrival. I found this pre-coloured image which was perfect for the clean and simnple design I had in mind. If I used the image again though I would probably make it a bit smaller within the aperture but unfortunately I didn't have time to reprint it for this card.

Pre-Coloured Digital Image: Isabel Brioso
Digital Design Papers: Carol Clarke
Embellishments: Gingham Ribbon, Pearl Ribbon Slider and Buttons (Favorite Findings) from my craft stash
Tools: Square Nestabilities
Sentiment: Created on the computer using 'Calamity Jane' font

Good morning Donna/MP !!
I am so glad that you liked my card and the catalogue arrived safe and sound!

Your card is absolutely.....PERFECT - AGAIN!!!!! You have mastered the CAS look which is something that I really struggle with - I have to sit on all of my embellishments!!
I love that perfect blue with the soft yellow/cream background - stunning!
Hope you have a fab day indoors in the dry!
