Heaven Sent, Bundle of Joy

Today my friend Andrea had a new baby girl! So after getting the text message that she had delivered, I sat down and started making her a card, and I am really happy with how it turned out.

 Sentiment inside card says "A moment in the tummy a lifetime in my Heart.

Items used:
  • Pink cardstock for card base cut 6 x 12 and then scored at 3 inches and 9 inches to make tri-fold card and for scalloped punches
  • ribbon 
  • cream cardstock for scalloped punches
  • scalloped punch
  • Twine
  • 3D square adhesive
  • ATG adhesive 
  • Pink flowers 
  • Yellow brad for center of flower
  • Tim Holtz distressing ink
  • Memento Cherry red ink 
  • Memento Black ink
  • Edge punch
I have been wanting to try making a tri-fold card lately, and just was waiting for the best opportunity to come along. When I sat down to make this card, I knew it was just the one to make as a tri-fold!

I stared by pulling out some light pink cardstock sheets that were 12 x 12. I cut one in half so that I would have a 6 x 12 piece of paper. I then used my Martha Stewart scoring board to score the paper at 3 inches and 9 inches, giving me a 3 inch flap on each side, and a 6 inch back.

I then pulled out my corner punches and picked one to give the edges of the flaps something extra. I then pulled out the ribbon and trimmed the ribbon to fit around the card. The ribbon starts / ends at the flap opening. I attached the ribbon with ATG adhesive on the back.

I then cut the scalloped circles using the same pink cardstock as the base card was made from as well as some scrap cream colored cardstock. I attached the two colors together using a 3D adhesive square and then inked the edges. Before attaching the two layers together, I stamped the sentiment onto the pink cardstock using the Memento cherry red ink. I attached the scalloped circles to the card also using a 3D adhesive square.

The flowers were attached together using a yellow brad, and then attached to the card using a small 3D adhesive square.

I also made the card, but forgot to right down what score marks ended up working for this card. (Sorry!) I am going to have to play around some more with some white paper to make it a better fit, as this envelope was a little big width and almost to small for the height.

I added the ribbon to the card to give it a little extra color.

I also happened to make some banana bread today, so decided to take her some to have in the hospital. After rapping it up in tinfoil, I used twine to bundle it all up and then stuck a bow on it to match the ribbon on the card!
