My daughter's baby shower was this past weekend. I wanted to make a very special card for the occasion.
A Carl Sandburg quote, "A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on." was what I chose to hand letter onto a 6" x 6" piece of watercolor paper. Before I did the lettering, however, I created a suitable background to enhance the lettering. I used a combination of inks, Brushos, stencils and sponging.
After I had finished the lettering portion of the card, I mounted it to a 6" x 12" cardstock base to give me a 6" x 6" card.
Being an odd-sized card warranted me bringing out my Envelope Punch Board to make a custom envelope for the card.
This is the envelope closed with the card inside.
The color scheme I chose for my card matches that of the future Enzo's room. It is in shades of blue, green, gray and white.
Can't wait to meet you, Enzo!
