Just call me Grandma!

Hi there! I dusted off my Cricut last week. I don't have a pregnancy stamp set so I thought I'd make a card with "New Arrival" Cricut Cartridge. I can't remember if I mentioned on my blog yet that I'm going to be a first time Grandmother! I'm thrilled for my daughter and her husband as they take on their new journey. I'm thrilled for me too!! Can't wait to hold that little Bambino!

My card is fairly simple. Just an A2 sized card base with some layered mats. From the Simple Stories Summer Fresh 6x6 pad, I cut out one of the journaling cards, matted it and layered my pregnant girl on with some foam tape. Before doing that, I notched a space in the top of the base with a SU slot punch for my double twine bow (the Twinery) to sit. I also laid down a MS doily. Then added some red pearls. Easy peasy! I popped it in the mail today so she can get a little surprise snail mail.
