Bundle of Joy

Morning.
There is nothing more special then a new baby and I need a card for a special friend.

I began by stamping this cute little bunny onto white cardstock and fussy cut him out.  I stamped the bunny again onto the blue gingham paper, then fussy cut out his belly and ears and glued them on.   I coloured the rest of the bunny using Copics and set aside.
Next, I found the closest match to the gingham in my Distress ink colours which was Stormy Sky.  I wanted a space to ground the bunny when I added him to my card front so I masked the corner then sponged on the ink keeping it just in the corner of the card front.
Using my Misti, I stamped the sentiment and clear heat embossed it.  
I mounted the inked piece onto the gingham, pop dotted the bunny and done.
A very clean and simple, fun card.
