Baby, Oh baby

I was going to do this wonderful post last night after coming home from our annual fire department Christmas dinner and party.  Yeah, well, that obvioiusly didn't work.  I definitely have just a bit of a "cold and a runny nose" this am!  I decided (ha!) for the better part of valor last night (actually really early this morning) that I did not need a BUI (blogging under the influence) and went to bed instead.

It is bright and early (damn fire pager of DH went off at 0515 this am) and here I am, doing my second post for my guest DT spot for The Crafty Pad.  This weeks challenge is to 'Send someone a smile', No Christmas allowed!

I just happen to have a couple of people at work that are having baby's so I decided to play with on of the baby sets from The Crafty Pad.

The card fits a standard 5.75 by 4.5 envelope, I just fussy cut on the right side of the bottle.  The flowers along either edge of a CB embossing strip that is rubbed with ink after dry embossing.  I put a little dab of liquid pearls at each center.  The flowers on the bottle are heat embossed with Ranger white detail embossing powder.  The flower image is from an Our Craft Lounge set.
The coloring is all copics.  This actually worked on this card with one layer because I wanted the ink to bleed through so that I could continue coloring the other side so that you see the bottle when the card is open also!

I took my black copic multi-liner and traced the image of the bottle and colored some more.

The footprints were printed and colored, punched out and then heat n' stik and glitter were used to make a medallion.  The pacifier (dummy) was colored, cut out and hung off a piece of pink baking twine (The Twinery) from the medallion.  The would congratualations was stamped all over the part of the inside covered by the bottle (when the card is closed).  It is a stamp from Our Craft Lounge.

I added a handwritten 'It's a girl' and the card was done!
Go by The Crafty Pad and check out the gorgeous creations done by the "real" DT, play along with the challenge and then visit the store and maybe even pick up a stamp of two!
