{Altenew} For the New Mother

Hi, everyone! I'm back with a quick card that cases a previous Altenew card of mine. I needed a baby card for a friend who gave birth to her third child a couple of weeks ago. I haven't made a baby card in a very long time but the Celebrations stamp set had the perfect sentiments.

On the original design, I only used one of the Halftone Circles in the centre, behind all of the images. Here, I featured three smaller halftone circles in Mountain Mist, Pink Diamond and Morning Frost to coordinate with the watercolours.

All of the sentiments and images from Coffee Love and Celebrations were heat embossed and watercoloured with distress inks. I also moved the little coffee cup to the left side as it was originally on the right but didn't work for this particular layout. To embellish, I used sparkling clear sequins in three sizes and added little pearls to their centres.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

It's a beautiful card for anyone who loves a feminine touch, Emily ... oh so special for a new mom ... as the mother of three, a tea party of this kind would have been a blessing, indeed!
