Today I decided to make a baby card. No idea why I chose this. I do not know anyone who is pregnant right now but since I seemed inspired to do this I thought why not!!! Let's just jump in and get started.
I started with a base card of Tempting Turquoise cut at 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2". I then added a layer of 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" Whisper White. I ran this through my big shot using the perfect polka dots impression folder. Once impressed, I used sponges and Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise ink and brushed over the dots to add color to it. I attached it using runner adhesive.
The top layer is a quilt I made using left over designer series paper. I started with a 4" x 5" piece of Whisper White. Using my 1" square punch, I punched out squares from the dsp and attached them to the white using runner adhesive. Once covered, I ran this through the big shot using the top note die.
I attached a piece of retired 1/4" grosgrain Tempting Turquoise ribbon to it and attached it to the card using the runner adhesive.
The stamped image on this one is from a stamp set called Best of Brides and Babies. This is a special set offered by Stampin' Up! in celebration of their 25 years in business. I stamped the image using Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White. I colored the image using colored pencils and cut it out free hand. It is attached to the card with runner adhesive. I tucked it behind the ribbon just a bit. I added some colored rhinestones to the ribbon for dazzle.
The word was made using my big shot and an alphabet set of sizzlits called Girls are Weird. I cut the skinny part of the letters out of Pumpkin Pie card stock and the shadow letter from Basic Black. I layered the letters using a 2 way glue pen and attached them to the card with the same glue pen. I added some dazzling details glitter glue to the letters for added pizzazz.
Well that's it for today. I am going to go finish my laundry and take a nap. The worst part of the summer heat for me is that it increases my migraines greatly and I spend a lot of days hurting. Oh well, I have survived for many years so I am sure I will be fine this summer too.
Please stop by tomorrow to see what I will have to share with you then. I am so happy you chose to spend some time with me today. Thanks for dropping in and I will see you tomorrow.
