Windy and Mimi, friend of ours, recently had a new grandson!  It's always exciting to have a new baby!!  This little fellow was named Johnny for Mimi's dad, the baby's great grandfather.  That's really special to her!  I wanted to make a cute card to send them to congratulate them on the news.  Here is the card I came up with.
I had seen a cute stamp with a baby hanging from a tree, but couldn't find where to purchase the stamp.  So I decided just make my own card using punch art,
The baby's "blanket swing" is made from the largest oval in the Ovals die.  I ran it in both directions through my crimper, to give it some texture and folded it in half.  I trimmed each corner to give it the curved shape.    The baby's head is made using the 1-1/4" circle punch and the legs are punched from the Word Window punch.  I free-hand cut the tree branch  and clouds.  The leaves on the tree are punched with  Two-step Bird punch.

The sentiment, "Welcome Baby" was stamped with the Something to Celebrate SS, a level 2 hostess in the Occasions mini.

I think Mimi and Windy will like this card! I hope so.  What do you think?
Smiles, Laura
