Classy Cards Baby Shower

Hi, I made this for my friend to give at a shower.  The invitation was blue and brown so I tried to use those colors.  

I cut the umbrella from an old Quickutz die with a scrap of Authentique paper I had in my stash.  The new Spellbinders Umbrella Trio die would work well too.  I added rhinestones to the centers of the stars on the umbrella.  

I cut a white oval using the new Spellbinders Oval Bliss die and then sponged Antique Linen distress ink onto it using the die as a stencil. The yellow dotted paper is from an older 12x12 DCWV paper pad.  Once I liked the shading on the circle, I adhered the umbrella using Joy! Foam pads.  I doubled up the pads on the center of the umbrella to add more dimension and give a rounded appearance to the die.  The sides are also popped with Joy! Foam Pads but I didn't add an extra layer so the sides would sit closer to the paper.

For the brown layer I cut a piece of Kraft card stock but then decided I wanted something a little darker so I brushed distress ink around the edges to darken the Kraft paper before I glued the layers together.  I added a baby stamp from my stash, a bow with a small button and voila!  This was a quick card if you need something for a shower in a snap.

Thanks for stopping by!

Really nice Classy Cards Baby Shower. The design is truly amazing. I am also finding any good San Francisco venues for my cousin’s art themed surprise birthday bash but having hard time in finding a right location within the budget. Please share any suggestions.
