Jackson’s Arrival

Here's a card I made for my son and daughter-in-law to welcome Jackson home from the hospital tomorrow.

Although Jackson's room is a puppy theme, I did borrow the color scheme of the nursery to make this card – Night of Navy, Bravo Burgundy and Brocade Blue.  I created the main image using Nursery Necessities stamp set and inking each part of the ship with Stampin' Write Markers.  I stamped once on the main Very Vanilla card stock, then a second time on a scrap and cut out the base of the ship and attached it with Dimensionals.  I built a frame around it by punching Bravo Burgundy card stock with the Scallop Square Punch six times and attaching them to the back.  If you haven't already figured out, this is my new favorite punch!  Just love the versatility it brings to each project!  Did you notice the clever ribbon treatment?  I couldn't decide between the Bravo Burgundy and the Brocade Blue 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, so I used them both!  I attached a piece of each to the back of the Very Vanilla card stock, then tied them in front.  Kinda cool, huh?  Finally, I added a star designer brad from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware kit.

I'm really having fun decorating the inside of my cards lately.  Here's the inside of this one, as well as the lined envelope.  I got my Night of Navy Patterns Designer Series Paper from the Level 1 Hostess Paper pack.  You can take this handy package of paper for free if you order over $150 in product or host a workshop totaling $150 or more!  Why not get your workshop on the calendar for 2010!  Or place your own order at my Online Store HERE.  Contact me today!
