Soft and Sweet Congratulations




While today's card would also be appropriate for an engagement, or wedding, I actually intend to use it for a baby card.  The soft tones work perfectly to send as a congrats on the birth of an adorable baby girl.


I used a Whisper White Card base, and a Whisper White card front.  I wanted a bit of depth, but I wanted it to be subtle, which is why I choose the tone on tone.  I layered a strip of Sahara Sand card stock on the background, and added a die cut oval from the new Falling in Love DSP.  I added another oval cut from vellum - that I heat embossed my sentiment onto - on top of that.  Then I tied some linen thread around the card front.  


I felt that the card needed a little something more, so I cut a flower shape from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, and cut that in half.  I put one half on each the top and bottom of the oval piece.  Then I glammed it up a bit more with some pearls.  I really like how that little embellishment just seemed to make the card pop.


Thanks for stopping by!


Much love,
