This is a quick card I made for my cousin and his wife who just had a baby boy a few days ago (welcome Ethan!). I will be seeing them tomorrow so I plan to hand deliver it. I have made cards like this before. One was when I was the A Muse Guest Designer. You can see it here. However, the original design was for my baby daughter's birth announcements, which I made last October. You can see that here. Both times with the duck family, I masked one adult duck so I could add a second parent to the group. The scallop border is such a pretty accent image here, too. Add the vellum into the mix and it gives the card a very soft and classic look. Here is a close up of the scallop edge. I embossed with clear powder since it was stamped on vellum - that saves smearing and drying time!
