I am the official card maker at my office. One of my co-workers is going on maternity leave soon, and we are having a little get together for her on Monday. I got thinking about the whole currently being pregnant but soon to deliver thing, and decided to see if I could translate that into a card. What do you think? I've never done a view master card before, and let me tell you, I spent hours working out all the kinks!
I used the head from Expectafellabella and the bottom from Babyfellabella and attached them to the front of the card with mini glue dots. I stamped and colored each of the four mid-section pieces, cut them out, and glued them onto the pink view master insert after the card was assembled so that I could line them up properly.
Here's the first view, with the mid-section from Expectafellabella.
The mid-section for the second view is from Teddybella. Doesn't she look like she is going to pop any second now?
In the third view, with Babyfellabella mid-section, baby has arrived. Aren't they sweet?
And here in the last view, with the mid-section from Dogwalkabella, we see that my co-worker is trim and fit and ready to return to work.

I've recieved a few questions on how I made the card, and will try to answer them. First off, read the view master card tutorial on SCS for the basic directions. Now on to specifics...
1. The brad is hidden under her skirt. (Get your mind out of the gutter! Really!) I used a mini glue dot to hold the skirt in place and it seems to be holding up well.
2. For the nice dark skin tone, I used a SU creamy caramel marker. I also highly recommend the SU creamy caramel or close to cocoa watercolor crayons.
3. I made 6 "washers" to put between the brad and the view master insert to give it room to spin. To make them, I punched a hole with my 1/16th" hole punch, and then lined my 1/4th" hole punch over that hole and punched again. Wah lah! Instant washer.
