Welcome to this VERY special blog hop for a good friend of mine, Beverley! A few days ago, she gave birth to BEAUTIFUL TWIN BOYS!! The Uniko Studio design team has teamed up for this awesome blog hop to honor Bev and her two little blessings.
Beverley - CONGRATULATIONS!!! I am so beyond excited for you! Being a mom is such a rewarding experience, and even more so with twins ;) I wish you the best in your first weeks and months as you learn more and more about those amazing little blessings you have. Cherish every moment and take lots of pics! :D
Now, onto the crafty goodness. I made a one layer card (with exception of the star diecuts). I used a technique that Laura Bassen showed in the Online Card Classes - One Layer Cards from a few months ago (yes I'm REALLY behind!). It's all about stamp layering. You can see which stamps sets I've used listed in the supplies at the end of the post.
I started by masking off the horizontal white strip in the middle of the card. Then, I stamped the light grey background, then all the stars. After removing the mask, I stamped the sentiment. Then, the stars were diecut and attached with foam tape for some dimension. I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out! What do you think?!
Ok, it's time to check out the next designer, Gillian's, beautiful card! Make sure to leave her some love! ;)
We are also inviting anyone else who would like to join in on the celebration to create a card for Bev and post it on your blog or online gallery, and then add it to the InLinkz linkup in this blog post!
