I usually make a card for any siblings of a new baby as they can so often feel left out by the attention poured on the new arrival.
This card was made for my friend's son who became a big brother aged just shy of 22 months! The image is by Hunkydory from the For the Boys collection. I formed a wigwam from the foiled cardstock, half following instructions from a HD magazine. The Chief is decoupaged. The whole thing was mounted on to a blue background with a small strip of grass at the bottom. This was layered onto cold mirri card before being added to an 8x8 card blank. I couldn't find an appropriate sentiment so just wrote along the lines of "I guess this makes you the Big Chief now" inside.

This card was made for an ex work colleague (I don't work there now!) who had a baby girl at the beginning of September. The image is Penny Black and was coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pencils (plus blending solution). Now, I'll be honest and admit that I didn't think using the pencils on top of pens would make much difference but I was pleasantly surprised! The image was mounted on to a Die'sire Chantilly Lace stamping frame cut in pink Centura Pearl cardstock. The sentiment is by LOTV and was stamped and punched out. I added a bow to the top left corner to balance the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
