A Baby in Texas

A Baby in Texas

Tomorrow I’m attending a baby shower for two neighbors who are both expecting a baby boy. This is one of the cards I made for the occasion. My next-door neighbor is in the process of selling her house and moving to Texas, so I thought a (rocking) horse image would be very appropriate for her card!

I stamped the image and sentiment from Rupa Shevde’s Oh, Baby! set in black ink on a Labels Seven die-cut. I traced around the inside of the die with a red glitter pen. When I colored the saddle red with Copic markers, it was wonderful to be able to stay inside the lines (for the first time ever, I think). Red is not an easy color when you’re working with Copics. The background was stamped with blue ink and striped grosgrain ribbon was the only embellishment I used.

Thanks for stopping by!
