I thought I'd share a card I made to send to a couple friends to announce the birth of our newest little granddaughter. I made this card for a challenge so I wanted to wait till the contest was over to post it here. The challenge was to make something out of a mystery die cut I received in the mail. The die cuts were a flower pot and a stem with leaves. You could do anything with them but cut them. After looking at them and studying them for a few days, the idea of a birth announcement came to me.
I chose to wrap a narrow ribbon around the stem and make my own leaves out of the ribbon. I also snipped and lightly inked the edge of some more ribbon and taped to the back of pot to resemble grass.
On the inside I added all the "particulars" embellished with a crocheted flower to add some dimension along with baby's pic.
This was my "thinking outside the box" moment that day. Hope you enjoyed my creation.
P.S. I won that challenge, by the way!
