Welcome Christian John

My husband Steve and I have become Grandparents again.  Steve’s daughter Amanda gave birth to
Christian John last week.  Amanda and proud father Eric live in Pittsburgh.  Those of you that are Pittsburgh fans will appreciate this picture of Christian.

I made this card to celebrate the arrival of Christian to our family.  The Made with Love stamp set made making this card so easy.  After stamping each of the animal images on whisper white I used a blender pen to subtlly highlight the image by pulling in the color from the edges.  It is very very subtle but a pleasing effect to the eye.  The Thick Whisper White card stock makes for a great card base.  Love it.

I popped each circle up on a cropped tag from the Tags and Labels framelit set.  There is also a piece of Marina Mist (retired) ribbon underneath to ground the images.
