Welcome baby James!

Friends of ours who live in Perth had a baby boy last week and I wanted to make a card using the Baby Bundle stamp set (IB&C p 56) as I haven't used it before.

I like the idea of having the pram and being able to bundle into it any items I liked. I choose the teddy bear, rattle and bottle and then added the booties to the handle.

I water coloured the image using the ink pads and a blender pen, scalloped some blue cardstock and then versamark stamps some heart on the crumb cardstock.  I used the sentiments from the same set and punched them out with the oval punch and then mounted it onto the oval scallop.  I added a couple of little brads for colour as well as some dots around the scallop.  All in all I'm really happy with how the final product looks. I hope they like it!
