Showers of Blessings


I made this quick, fun card for a baby shower this weekend. She is having a boy, so I wanted to use blue but not go traditional. So I used a brighter blue paired with kraft, white, and a pale yellow. The umbrella was made by paper piecing the stamped image. At the bottom I used snow white ink and the retro backgrounds set from PTI to create a pattern between the ric rac and the apron lace bottom. Fast, Easy, and I must say I loved it!

Supplies:
Paper: Kraft cardstock (SU!); patterned paper (BoBunny)
Ink: Snow White (PTI); Tuxedo Black (Momento)
Stamps: Scattered Showers and Retro Basic Backgrounds (PTI)
Extras: Apron Lace punch (Fiskars); Ribbon (JoAnn's)
