Finding Nemo Baby Shower Card Tutorial

Hello Friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!
Today I would like to share with you something a little different.  I was asked by a friend to create a "Finding Nemo Baby Card."
I had a fun time putting this card together.
Pin It!
Lucky for me, I made this card for a friend, who has a friend ...who is having a baby :0)  Good thing it is not me going to the shower...because then I fall into that...I think I want another baby...LOL.  
Here is a close up of the darling image that I found here.
I just want to mention that I was creating my card around 2am...which of course made me think of my friend Helene.
I decided to use my Art Glitter Designer dries clear Glue & Ultra fine Metal Tip , to add glue to my card.  I used the perfect color glitters to set off my images.  #183 Blue Angel was used on the blue scallop, #373 Fairy Dust to the eyes, # 56 Pumpkin to Nemo, #162 Just Peachy to the pink areas, #286 lettuce to the green areas, #236 Clementine to the turtle, #92 Banana on the yellow areas and #91 Orange Crush, on the orange areas.
Look at my fabby bow that I created using Orange with White dots Grossgrain ribbon and Bow it All from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
You can watch Bonnie's Youtube tutorial here to see how to make a bow like this.
Here is a look at the inside.
I altered the second image that you see above by using part of the original image and changing the colors of some of the pieces.  I created the text boxes and used MTC and my Black Cat Cougar to cut out my pieces. You can see the sweet little Orange Gingham bow that holds my Polkadot bow to the front of my card below.
I am super happy with how the card turned out.  Here is a photo of the card with the gifts my friend packaged, and of course the bows were made using the Bow it all!
I think the paper is perfect, and Card went with is fabulously!!
So enough chit chat about my card...you can watch me make it on my youtube video below.
It is kind of long..so you may want to get a snack and a cup of tea or coffee.

I hope you enjoyed my card!
Thank you for visiting!!
Hugs
Heather

  5. Absolutely beautiful Helen!!! Would love these for my daughter's baby shower but as invitations? Do you sell these or know where I would be able to get them? I was looking for something different as oppose to just an ordinary invite. This is so beautiful .
