Congratulations...It's a Boy!

Today I needed a card for a friend of mine who just became a Grandma for the first time. I am enjoying being a Grandma and Carol is a very proud one also.  Her daughter recently had a baby boy - Easton and I wanted to help her celebrate the birth by sending a congratulations card. I came up with this card using the new stamp set "Oh Whale" that is currently in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.

I love the look of adding a doily for the background. I also added a rhinestones for the whales eye and on the Congratulations tag. Marina mist and real red are the cardstock colors. I did emboss the real red cardstock to add some texture. Do you like the way I made the Congratulations tag?

I actually saw this idea on Pinterest. It was so easy. It is using SU! scallop square punch. This shows you how it is done:

Slip your tag through the TOP of the punch, align it the same on both sides and punch. Easy!

This is the inside of the card - super simple with just a few words from a retired stamp.

Thanks for stopping today at my blog - Please Enjoy the moments!
