Unisex baby card

I was asked by a friend to make a baby card that could be used for a boy or girl. She wants to send it to her friend who lives in Australia so it is there for when the baby arrives. I thought I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone and have a go at the DCM mid week tutorial using doodling on a card.....


I used a tall thin white card blank and cut out lots of yellow circles which I stuck to the right of the card all the way down the side, not quite to the edge. I then doodled around them onto the white card (as Jo shows on the DCM blog) and cut around the doodles to make a large scalloped edge. I then used some freebie paper as a backing. I inked a strip of white card with yellow and green inks, then stuck down the middle of the card. I then added a green ribbon over the centre of the inked card. The stamped image uses a stamp that is my bargain of the month 99p in The Range!!!! I stamped in black Stazon and painted the image using marvy le plume pens. I doodled the outside of the image and mounted onto green, then yellow card. A congratulations rub on was stuck underneath the image and I cut the letters for the name Pam & Eric using my cuttlebug with the Moxie Quickkutz alphabet set. Last of all I stuck green buttons up the right side of the card. Ooh and added glitter glue to the names and the pram!! I'm very pleased with this card. It is one of my faves!
