Another idea I got for a card to tell a man he's going to become a father =)
There were two major ideas I wanted to incorporate in my new card: 1) make it bright and fun; 2) make it personal - unlike y previous tries (click the label "baby" to see my other ideas)
This card is based on a saying "Life is like a zebra: there are always stripes". So the front cover says: "Life is a STRIPY thing":
And I used laminated cardstock with stripes and lines of all colors.
There are round windows, lids are fixed with brads, and each can be rotated and you can peep inside:
There're different stripes.
When the cover is lifted a picture of striped life can be seen:
A rainbow - colorful stripes; a tiger (kinda my husband) - narrow stripes; raccoon (like it's me) - wide stripes; watermelon - monochrome stripes; striped flowers, striped bees, striped cloud and stripes of the grass below... Sentiment in the upper corner says Stripes can be different!
Everything's handmade, I didn't even use my CraftRobo/ Only my hands, paper and scissors.
The closeup of the main characters:
Tiger is made of velvet paper with lacquer -marker stripes.
The raccoon is made of torn mulberry paper (I have no velvet of white color) with velvet stripes.
And the inside of the card:
"...two thin, but very important stripes have come to our life!"
And there's the positive pregnancy test.
And a raccoon. Among watermelon seeds =) So, try to guess - is she pregnant or just ate the whole watermelon alone? =))
