Congratulating new uncles

A friend who I've known since I was 12, Bethany, sent me a message the other day asking me to make her some cards. She said she could find lots of "congrats on your new baby" and "congrats to the new grandparent" cards, but couldn't find any for new uncles! So I made some, and personalised them too! 
I used background stamps from Hero Arts, embossed onto watercolour cardstock, then coloured with Zigs and water. I tried to keep the colours pale, to match the new baby theme.
The sentiments are partly die cut with dies from Hero Arts and Avery Elle, and partly stamped, with the "uncle" stamp from Stampin' Up, and the names stamped with the Perfectly Penned set from Concord & 9th. The little animals are from DeNami Design.





 Thanks for visiting :)

  2. Terrific work, Michelle. Love the backgrounds in the soft color palettes. You find some wonderful backgrounds and dress them up beautifully. I also really like how you personalized the cards. I'm sure the uncles were proud as punch!
