Baby News Card Set by Shery


Hey there, SRM fans! Shery here today sharing a set of cards using chalk markers! These chalk markers are incredibly fun and easy to use for all sorts of projects. They go so well with SRM stickers, particularly the We've Got Your Border stickers and my all-time fave, Sticker Stitches.

As my husband and I will be welcoming our first child in August, baby announcement cards are just some of the things I started working on as soon as the pesky morning sickness started to become a thing of the past and I've got a lot more energy. I needed to make these cards to send out to family, relatives, and friends here and abroad, and here are just 6 (of many!) I've done.

To start, I stamped the rocking horse, teddy bear, and baby carriage that I'd originally illustrated and turned into stamps in various Hero Arts inks. Since we don't know yet if we're having a boy or a girl, I went with ink colors that would work regardless of our baby's gender.

I covered white card stock with the Easy Chalkboard Marker and once it was dry, I cut it in several small pieces. I doodled the frame/border using the Bistro Chalk White Marker and then used the Bistro Chalk Marker Fluorescent markers to write different baby messages.

I used Black Sticker Stitches on the cards, as well as 3 We've Got Your Border stickers: Baby GirlBaby Boy, and Pastel.

Hope you enjoyed my project, and thanks for letting me share! :o)  Got to get back to making more announcements.  I'm having so much fun!
