CAS Prams

I know several people who are expecting babies this year, so I wanted to make some Congratulations cards. Since I don't always know the sex of the child, I thought that the sweet color combo at Less is More would work well.

The little stamp is from Graphic 45's Little Darlings collection. I cut it out, covered with Crackle Paint, and added a raised border with a white Sakura glaze pen. I believe the little metal clips are by Graphic 45 as well. The [originally silver] stork charm is from my stash (Mom got it free somewhere!), and since I didn't want a silver charm, I heat-embossed it in copper (ZING).

The baby carriage stamp (well, they just look like prams don't they
‽) is by Viva Las VegaStamps. First, I stamped the Lace (Kaisercraft) in Antique Linen distress ink, and then stamped the line of prams in Mustard Seed (a bit more yellow than I wanted, but it was the closest I had).
