I've got another new card for today, I have a friend who is having a baby very soon and I just wanted to make her a special card for the big day.
This is her first girl after three boys! I know she is a little scared but I know she is excited too.
I followed a technique that Kristina Werner did on her blog a while ago. She first used a stencil to put some color down on the card then covered it with Translucent Embossing Paste. I tried it here and I really love how the effect turned out.
I cut my own stencil using my Silhouette. I really like all of the dies and stencils on the market but when I need something I don't have the patience to run out to the store and find the "right one". Also, where I live my stores might not have what I want so I make a lot of what I use on my cutting machine. :)
