It’s time for another Linky Party over at Craftin Desert Divas. This week, your challenge is to create... anything you like!! As usual, there are two prizes up for grabs: a stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas and a $25US gift card for regularly-priced patterns at Too Cute by Jessica.
Last week, my nephew and his wife gave birth to a stillborn baby boy. I was at a loss as to what sort of card to make for them. One of my colleagues volunteers in a leadership capacity with our local Pregnancy and Infant Loss support group and I am thankful for the direction that she gave me. I also really wanted to include a teddy bear on the card and was thrilled to find just the right image at SrappyDew.
The "Baby boy born sleeping" is computer generated and I used my Silhouette to design the wording to curve around the moon. I also used print and cut (with the pattern fill from Lettering Delights) for the moon, stars and little cap. Clouds are inked and embossed. The image is popped on the card too.
I used Craftin Desert Divas’ Simply Said stamp set for the "With Sympathy" sentiment. I stamped it in blue and then went over the sentiment with my Stardust Gelly Roll pen. I also coloured in the "string" on the blue star.
