A Maternity Leave Card

This card was made for a colleague who has gone on maternity leave.  It was made on an 8" x 8" pre made card blank to allow space for everyone to sign it.
I started by cutting the expectant mother and the individual elements from the New Arrival Cricut Cartridge using my Cricut Expression 1 machine.  I used a 5" setting and cut everything from Sheena's stamping card.
I then coloured all the elements using my Kuretake Clean Colour pens.  The top was also stamped in Cornflower Archival ink using one of the Tapestry stamps from the Butterfly Blooms set.  I matted up all the elements, but chose not to add the hat.
Appropriate words from sets 4, 6 and 7 of the Claritystamp Word Chains were stamped down the right hand side of a piece of white card (18.5cm x 18.5cm).  I used Majestic Blue Versafine ink and heat embossed them in detail clear EP.
The figure was then added on the left hand side.
Before being added to the card base, the topper was matted onto a piece of blue embossed card (19.5cm x 19.5cm).
