Hippo Baby Card


Hello everyone,
I am back to share this baby shower card I made for my eldest son and his wife who are expecting their first baby soon and I used the absolutely adorable Rainy Day Play stamps and dies from Clearly Besotted.
I started by using my Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China on a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# card stock then sprinkled some clear water on and blotted off, when dry I cut it out using the Wonky Scalloped Frames from Avery Elle.  I set this panel aside and then cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# card stock with the same die for the outside frame.  I then took a piece of Neenah Desert Storm card stock and made an A2 sized side fold card base, I then glued down the frame and inked panel to the card base and set aside to work on the elements.  I colored the hippo and his umbrella, water puddle, splash and ducky with my Copics and then glued them on my panel. I used the "Welcome Baby" sentiment from Newton's Nook Loveable Laundry set and stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink on the front of my panel.  I then used my white gel pen for accents on all the elements and my Spectrum Noir Glitter Gloss Pen on the umbrella, puddle, heart and splash, then used Glossy Accents on the heart, splash and ducky.  I finished my card with some clear confetti sequins from Unity Stamps.  And that is all for this card.

See you all soon!
