One of our oldest friends, Jeff, and his wife, Christie, are expecting their second baby next year. They already have a darling little girl and we are so happy for their new little one. Jeff and Christie are an adventurous, fun-loving couple, and I thought I'd make a card to help them celebrate the end of a not-so-pleasant first tri-mester.
For this card, I started with Taylor's fresh and funky sketch and looked for something bold and fun. I broke out my August Key Ingredients paper and ran the bright patterned paper through my Big Shot with some circle dies. Next, I stamped this cute VW bug and colored it with Copics. I outlined the whole thing with a clear glitter pen to make up for the dark ink color. (The circle behind the car is actually the B-side of one of the circles I cut out earlier!) I chose a deep, matching textured cardstock and added a bright polka-dot bow. The sentiment, "Baby on Board," is so teeny-tiny on the license plate, but I think it pretty much sums things up!
