Special Delivery

I know I will be needing baby cards soon.  So, theme for the Global Design Project this week came at the perfect time.  I don't yet know the gender of the baby, so I needed a gender neutral card.  Although I've been told colors don't have gender, I still tend to think of pink for girls and blue for boys (baby cards that is).

I decided to go with some symbolism on this card.  I don't know if it quite managed to get the message across, but I sure had fun making it.  I decided to use the three colors of the CAS challenge to represent the three people involved--mom, dad, and baby.  I'm pretty sure you can tell with the hearts that the larger two represent mom and dad and the smaller heart with the stork represents baby.  I also used all three colors on the celebrate thinlit.  I started by cutting out four with my BigShot:  Peekaboo Peach, Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Basic Black.  I then cut the three challenge colored words and used the Fine Tip Glue to reform the word "celebrate" on the Basic Black word.

I even carried the three colors onto the inside of the card making a fun pyramid of blocks.  The Tetris player in my wanted to turn the stamp upside down to fill the empty middle space on the bottom row.  That part was fighting with the OCD/Type A part of me that is really bothered with the upside down letters.  That part of me won the battle, so the bottom row of blocks has an empty space.

I am entering this card in three challenges.  Make sure you head over to them to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.

  1. What a wonderful card, Angel! The colours are perfect for celebrating a baby whose gender you don't know. What a clever idea to have that stamp of a stork carrying a baby in that heart. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
