Less Is More - Baby Card

Hello, friends!  I'm back today with another all-time favorite go-to card design I use when I need a baby "Congratulations" card.  I entered this in the current challenge at the Less Is More challenge since it is a clean and simple design (and it is a congratulations card to boot!).

I embossed the Rubber Stampede (A2268E) Stork with Baby stamp in black, then colored with colored pencils.  I masked the image and stamped the Hero Arts (S5215) Clouds stamp using soft pool shadow ink.  Finally, I added the Hero Arts (C2734) Congratulations sentiment and rounded the bottom corners.

Materials Used:  Rubber Stampede (A2268E) Stork with Baby; black embossing powder; colored pencils; Hero Arts (S5215) Clouds; soft pool shadow ink; Hero Arts (C2734) Congratulations; Crop-a-Dile Corner Chomper   

Sometimes I make a whole bunch of these cards without coloring the baby or the stork's bow...then, when I need a baby card for a specific occasion, I personalize it (i.e., for boy or girl). 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
