I'm not into traditional baby cards




I have been asked to make some baby cards for Handmade Canberra. I have issues with the traditional pink and blue cards and so thought green is a good compromise. I also thought a monkey would be a fun image to use on this card, I absolutely love monkey's and figured it was time they feature on my cards. 

This card was designed on photoshop, the green checked  background has been designed from scratch. I have had the digital  monkey image for forever and ordered it from GingerWorld, Etsy. I wanted the monkey to look like it was hanging from the Congratulations sign and resting it hands on the text below being "on your new arrival". The card has been printed on my PC, cut out and stuck to the backing card with self adhesive dimensional foam. I am really happy with this fun baby card and plan to print it out in a variety of bright colours.
