{Altenew} So Happy For You

I'm taking a break from regularly scheduled posts to share this baby card that was commissioned by a dance teacher at my son's school. One of their drama teachers is going on maternity leave soon and they're having a party tomorrow.

I thought that the little foxes from Hug Me were a perfect representation of mom and baby, especially since she's holding a little heart! All of the other images and the sentiment are from Celebrations, one of my favourite Altenew sets.

I heat embossed all of the images with sparkle embossing powder and watercolored them with distress inks, listed below. I also used the Watercolor Stripes Stencil on the left side of the base panel to create a bit of a background and to create movement across the card from left to right.

I added a strip of gold glitter cardstock at the bottom of the card to ground and highlight the foxes. Half of the images were adhered flat with large glue dots and the other half were popped up with foam tape for dimension and visual interest.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
