Mixed Media Baby Congratulations Card for ScrapBerry's


We are looking forward to welcoming our first grandchild in February. Our son and his lovely wife are expecting a little girl. I’ve created this sweet card for their baby shower featuring gorgeous ScrapBerry’s papers and embellishments. Rachel’s shower colors are pink and grey, so these papers from The Art of Nature and In Bloom Collections worked perfectly.

I'm up on the ScrapBerry's blog HERE.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for ScrapBerry's. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

Tips and Techniques
I arranged fabulous ScrapBerry’s flowers around the beautiful Rose Garden metal framed “Congratulations” piece which is dry brushed with gesso for a vintage look. 

The white Fairy Tale resin flowers and Wedding frame are painted with white gesso, then dripped with glimmer mist to color. The flowers and embellishments are dry brushed with gesso to soften.

I just had to tuck this sweet Kid’s Fun resin baby rattle into the cluster. It’s also brushed with gesso and mist to color. The ScrapBerry’s Birds of Paradise chipboard feathers extend the design so beautifully. To add texture, the background is stenciled with molding paste then sprinkled with glittered pink/white embossing powder while wet and heat set.

A mix of art stones and prills are adhered into the sweet resin frame from the Wedding Polymer Set for added texture.
