And here's my card all ready for my new grandson's album when he makes his appearance later this year. So it's a first for him too!
As you can see I rotated the sketch to give me a landscape card which fits the album size I'm going to be using better - a simple stories sn@p 6" x 8".
I started by inking through a stencil with distress ink onto some kraft cardstock. My intention is to journal onto this section of the card.
Next I die cut a banner from patterned paper and then a circle mat to go behind the scan photo which I also die cut into a circle.
Then I added some machine stitching and stamped the sentiments and sequins. The card was finished with a die cut love sentiment and a wooden pointing arm.
