Happy Pregnancy tri-fold





I have been wanting to make a card for my cousin, whose wife is expecting their first baby, for weeks now, and I thought I better get to it today or she would have the baby by the time I send them a "congratulations on your pregnancy" card!!!
I had been waiting for Melanie's "Hip-hop accessories" set for that since I wanted a kangaroo and baby in pocket... ;-) This card was one of those that just come to me at once, the paper, the small size, the tri-fold... it just clicked in my head, and I really love the end result (especially the small size, I should make small cards more often! ;-)).
So the front has the chick (which I changed into a bird...) and it says "Un petit oiseau m'a dit que..." which means "A little bird told me that...", then you open the card and find the kangaroo with baby in pocket (I just sliced with a blade alongside the pocket top and tucked my little guy in there!) and it says "C'est dans la poche!" which means literally "It's in the pocket".
Now, in french "it's in the pocket" means something like "it's a done deal", (or according to my dictionnary "it's in the bag"...)... so I thought it was really fitting with the kangaroo... :-)
I colored the animals with my watercolors pencils. I have had those for almost 20 years, they're a great french brand and I was happy to see they are still ok! :-)
