New Grand Parent Card

 Yesterday I heard a touching  story of couples struggle to have a baby. 
Yesterday their dreams were realized and those too of the Grandparents.
 It will be there first and maybe even their last grandchild.
The story with it's beautiful ending inspired me to create this card for the lovely grandparents. I 'd like to wish them all the joy and happiness in the world, but  I think it has just arrived with their new grandson.

To create this card I use a piece of blue white core card and ran it 

through the Bigshot using the swiss dots embossing folder from cuttlebug. Then  with a  fine grade foam sanding block from  a DIY store I lightly sanded over the embossed dots to reveal the white core of the card. 
(See the close up on the right ) 
I embossed some whisper white card stock using the same embossing folder.  These two pieces of card formed the background of my card.
Using the Top notes die from SU I cut out one white and one blue label and trimmed  the white layer back to the perforated line, I stamped the gorgeous image  from Stampin up ( now retired) and coloured it in  with  SU markers.
I added some Baja breeze seam binding, a bow and A greeting I created on my PC then foiled in blue.
The Inside greeting and poem inside was hot foiled in blue too.
