A card to welcome baby Holly

On Tuesdsay night, May 1st, my new granddaughter Holly was born. If you are a follower of Mellow Mummy  you may have already read about her arrival and seen photos of her, but I had to share a photo of my own
The proud grandparents!

Naturally I had to make a card to welcome her. We hadn't known whether she was going to be a boy or a girl, but as she turned out to be a lovely little girl it was easy to choose which card and paper to use. last year I was lucky enough to win a HUGE bundle of assorted 12 x 12 papers and cards, which included several baby designs in pink (but none in blue, so it's lucky she wasn't a boy!)


Since getting my Hougie Board, I've been very keen on making shutter cards, and I decided one of these would be a good way to make the most of the lovely embossed washing line design on the background card. The paper used on the top and bottom panels also came from my prize bundle, and I stamped the images and coloured them in with Promarkers, then mounted them on frames cut with Nestabilities. A little Candi from Craftwork Cards to highlight the design and this quick-to-make card was ready.
