I’ve used this image before for a baby shower card. Today I used the image for a new baby, my new granddaughter! Alexandra Grace was born November 14, four days before my birthday, and six days before her mother’s birthday.
I also made her a baby blanket, pink of course.
I used my Copics to color the image. The image is Baby Ellie by Conie Fong. I think it is so cute and perfect for a new baby or baby shower.
After coloring the image, I trimmed it down and then added some lace to the back of the image. I mounted that on some patterned paper. I cut some small strips of glitter paper and added it to the side of the patterned paper. I then adhered it to the card base.
I add a couple of highlights with my white gel pen and added Glossy Accents to the hearts in the wheels. I used my purple Atyou Spica Glittern Pen pen to the dots on the rattle for some sparkle. I wanted the white dots on the stroller to “pop” a bit, so I added some White Nuvo Drops. With that, my card was done.
Thanks for stopping by!

Congratulations Nanny! How lovely to have a little granddaughter! Girls are very rare in our family so I am truly excited for you. The card is so cute and love those Ellie ears. The blanket is a great keepsake too and can be a wonderful memory to pass on. Clever lady! 🙂
Thanks Kim! Now I have one of each!
Congratulations, you must be so excited to have a new baby in the family! I love the name Alexandra Grace, so pretty! Hope you getting lots of time with her, nothing like holding a newborn and playing with a 6 month old. This card is the perfect baby card and you do such a nice job making it come to life. The little blanket you made is beautiful. You are so talented!
