New Grandparents Congratulations

Recently a customer became a grandparent for the first time.  I made her a card to congratulate her on this special occasion.  

I used the Polka Dot Basics embossing folder for the background, together with the Lots of Labels dies which I stamped my rabbit on.  I love this rabbit.  He is so lifelike with his three step stamping method. I used Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede inks.

For the sentiment I used the die from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies (currently in the Occasions Catalogue) but I extended it to make it fit my word.  I did use some retired letter stamps to spell out the word Grandparents but everything else is current.

Whilst I admit I'm tickled pink for the new grandparents the baby was a boy.  So, I got out my Stampin' Write Marker and changed the 'pink' to 'blue'.  

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Whisper White

Inks: Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Night of Navy
