LIM 68 - Baby or Child Card
Thanks for all the kind comments last week. This week's challenge on the Less Is More blog is to make a card suitable for a baby or child - a theme that didn't really have me jumping for joy (hence the tardiness of my post this week). I very seldom need to make a baby card these days and am not really into cute stamps so after much scratching of my head I came up with this. When I used to make kid's cards I found the best way was to put the child's name on the front or to use an excruciatingly bad pun (snappy birthday with a crocodile was another favourite). I used tumbled glass & broken china DI for the background and a Komodo stamp for the seaweed. The fish are a Cuttlebug die. I added some glossy accent air bubbles and a computer generated sentiment. The aperture has been covered with acetate to give a goldfish bowl appearance.
