My friend that I painted the mural in her baby’s room for did finally have her baby (oh… 5 months ago now). Just got the announcements out last week. I wanted to keep with her owl theme, so took one of guys from the wall and put him on this announcement (she named them all, but I don’t remember which one he is). I put my lovely die-cutting machine to work again to build his name into the branches of the tree, and she picked 4 pictures of him as he grew up from birth to 3 months, and they sort of grew up the tree from there.
I initially built it so that the whole tree and parts were glued down flat to the green background, but it seemed too flat, so I added a very small pop-up to the top half of the card. All the leaves (thank you again die-cutter) are glued down flat though.
