Baby shower card

I went to a baby shower today for my friend, Cath. She is a fellow papercrafter, so I wanted to make a special card for her and her husband, Rob.
I used the Magical Background stamp from Hero Arts, white heat embossed onto white cardstock, then added some watercolour over the top. The main image is from Mama Elephant, coloured with Copic markers and the diecut (with some creative placement of the dies over the masked images). I then took another piece of white cardstock cut with a stitched cloud die from Lawn Fawn, and stamped a sentiment from Avery Elle. 

 I'll be sharing this card at the new CAS Mix up challenge (I used stamping, watercolouring, Copic colouring, heat embossing and die cutting), the Color Q challenge, and the Muse challenge.

  12. Such a lovely baby shower card!! It looks amazing and I think’s it’s a DIY baby shower. I would love to do few things on my sister’s baby shower as she has booked one of best outdoor party venues in Chicago. Excited for the event!
