& Then there were three



A non-traditional baby card today.

I inked up my new Pandamonium set from Mama Elephant.  These pandas are just so cute!  They are stamped with Versafine and fussy cut, and I added the mouths with a journaling pen.

For the background I cut an ampersand with my Silhouette and attached it to the panel with removable adhesive.  Then I misted it and once dry stamped the sentiment which was created with Lawn Fawn Milo's Alphas.

I misted another piece of scrap cardstock, more heavily this time, with green and trimmed it down to create the grass.

Simple and easy, but if you have friends who aren't into pastels, this is a great baby card alternative.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Tomorrow is National Scrapbooking Day and I'm hoping to make a dent in some of my backlog.

Stamps:  Mama Elephant - Pandamonium; Lawn Fawn - Milo's Alphas

Other:  Dylusions - London Blue and Cut Grass Ink Sprays; Silhouette File #37057; Tombow - Mono and Multi Mono adhesive
