Guest Designer Week: Melissa Hampton

Embossed Baby Card

We are excited to continue our week featuring guest designers! Today, we have the talented Melissa Hampton! Check out her pretty baby shower card below!

Hello, Everyone!
Here is a card I made for a friend who just gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. The Craftwell Regency folder is one of my favorite embossing folders, because not only is the design so elegant, but I love to cut out pieces of the folder and layer different colors together.

I embossed a white piece of cardstock, and then cut out designs on embossed blue and yellow paper, and layered them over the white cardstock,  alternating the colors.  Add a 
couple of cute embellishments and you have a quick, beautiful card to present.

Using different colors opens up a world of card making combinations: You can do pink for a girl, imagine using the colors of a beloved couples wedding, or even the school colors of your favorite graduate,  as graduation season is only a couple of months away. I hope you are inspired to get “colorful” today!

Thank you Team Craftwell!


Thank you Melissa!
