We learned, not too long ago, that some friends were expecting their second child. Rather than go the typical baby route, I opted for non-traditional colours.
The colours were inspired from Create with Connie and Mary's colour challenge
and a sketch from Inkspirations Challenges:
My card, inspired by both challenges:
I used the Vintage Wall embossing folder on the chocolate chip cardstock. The butterfly stamp is from a hostess set called Punch Potpourri. A gold glimmer brad holds the butterfly in place. On the newsprint paper, I stamped small butterflies using a stamp from the Flight of the Butterfly set.
Here is a close-up of the butterfly:
I stamped the butterfly in chocolate chip and old olive and punched out the images. They were layered on top of each other with the desired effect being that the chocolate chip created a shadow.
Now this card does not look like a baby card - but that's okay. I think our friends will appreciate receiving a more adult-looking card. They will definitely be receiving plenty of baby cards in the days and weeks to come.
Thanks for visiting!
