Love My Bump

Today I made my first ever pregnancy card, featuring the sweet Pregnancy Glow image from Redonkadoodles.


This is for a colleague who is off on maternity leave next week.  I don’t know the gender of her baby so I mixed pinks and blues on the card.  I also threw in some orange as the mum-to-be is an SES volunteer and they wear bright orange overalls. 

I toyed with making an easel card but I’ve already made her one for her engagement and she recently also got a 6x6 card for her birthday from me so I needed a different shape.  The layout is from the current challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches, I just swapped out the circle shape for a heart to echo the heart on the image.

Skin E50, E51, E53 (cheeks E11)
Lips R24, R29, R46
