New baby card

This is a card I recently did for a colleague whose daughter in law just presented her with a new grandson.

The card was a gatefold square card, with a raised centre flap.  I kept the colours plain and simple, using blue and white as the main theme.  The butterflies were punched (X cut punch, I believe), as was the dotted edge to the card gatefolds (EK Success edger punch).
 The inside flap was decorated with a topper made from layered nesties, and with a very old stamp (manufacturer forgotten, I'm afraid) that was languishing in my stamp drawers.  The image was coloured with promarkers.

Underneath the flap was the normal congratulatory sentiment, and a single "congratulations" was placed under the image.  Side panels were made from the same blue card as the topper and front panel butterflies.

I used peel off lettering for the baby's name.
This is a close up of the coloured image.
