The good news is she successfully delivered her (huge) healthy and happy baby boy! I wanted to make a special card for Anita and Patrick’s new baby, so I looked at some pictures of the nursery Anita had shared online. She put so much love, effort and care into the special touches that brought this adorable room together. This card is a nod to little Beckett’s nursery.
I used the cheerful Lifting Spirits Close to My Heart stamp set for the airplane and clouds. Is anyone else concerned that there’s no one flying the plane? I told Anita a teddy bear is flying it (totally normal) but he leaned over to tie his shoe when this picture was taken. I stamped the airplane onto the cardstock first and then stamped it onto scrap paper. I trimmed around the stamped image and stuck it onto the airplane with washi tape to temporarily mask it. I should have used a sticky note or the masking adhesive designed for this! Then, when I stamped the clouds over the airplane, it caused the clouds to look like they were behind it.
I used Copic markers to color this. I have forgotten everything I learned about coloring with alcohol markers in high school AP art and college.Don’t you just love this cute orange and white button that anchors the sentiment banner in place? Anita is very talented at sewing, so I thought adding a button was appropriate.I made a little string of pennants from orange cardstock that I hand-cut and drew designs upon with a white gel marker. I used glue dots to lay them over the embroidery floss I stapled down with a mini stapler.Anita shared this cute pic she took of the card in the nursery and she plans to display it on one of the shelves made from vintage suitcases:Thanks for reading my blog!
