A card for my best friend ! She had a baby boy last weekend and I sketched this card for her.
I was torn between my two favorites...a letterpressed card and a watercolored one so decided to combine both!
I got the little one a cashmere/merino wool blue baby blanket ( now that's a tongue twister!). It is sooo soft and cuddly, I hope I can tear myself away from it fast enough to mail it! To go with it, I painted a loose sketch of the blankie on the card as a keepsake for her scrapbook.
Over the weekend, I got the L letterpress platform which fortunately works with my Big Shot. I gave it a test run today and really love the deep impression it makes....a huge difference from my earlier attempt without the platform.

Love the look of letterpress!
