I think this card speaks to the idea of renewal and the hope that a new baby brings to the world. It also kind of reminds me of the hopeful feeling of spring after a long winter.
I used this photo as inspiration. I just loved the bright colors of the room and the unique design.
PTI's Make It Monday challenge to use distressed edges in your card. I edged the card with Tea Dye ink and then distressed it with Tim Holtz's paper distresser tool. This is a great tool to make distressing your card much easier! It can also help to ink it before you distress. The wetness of the ink can make it tear a little easier.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a very sunny day today! :)
All supplies are Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Stamps: Merry Little Christmas, Inside and Out: Baby, Love Lives Here
Ink: Versafine Graphite Black (Brilliance), Sunflower Yellow (Brilliance), Tea Dye Duo
Paper: Vintage Cream
