New Nephew

We are all sat here holding our breaths, desperately awaiting the safe arrival of my brother's baby. They accidently found out they were having a boy. I say accidently they had a 3D scan and the little monkey made it perfectly clear he was a boy. 

My Mum wanted a card to send to them all ready for when he decides to vacate. So this may well be the first of many new arrival cards. We are a big family after all

There is a video on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

I printed the image and begun to colour it in using IG5, IG2, IG1. TB5, TB3, TB2 It was cut out using the circle nesting die

The rest of the image was coloured using

Skin FS4, FS8, FS7, FS6

Clothes IB3, IB2, IB1

Wall BT2, BT1

Floor BG3, BG2, BG1

A larger circle was cut using pearlescent card and the 2 were adhered together

A piece of A4 card was scored and folded at the half way point and the largest torn circle nesting was placed so it was slightly over the folded part

A separate piece of white card was cut with the same die and adhered onto the front of the card base. Across the middle a piece of ribbon was secured

The image was then adhered onto this. The sentiment was stamped in Midas and cut out before been adhered and 2 heart buttons were added to hive it a little dimension

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
