Baby cards are always so much fun to make. They're cute and sweet and make you go "Awwwww." I don't have too many opportunities to make baby cards, so I enjoyed sitting down to create one yesterday for a cousin's baptism.
Supplies (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Stacks of Wishes, Sweet Essentials
Cardstock: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, Real Red, Basic Black
Ink: Marina Mist
Accessories: Cloudy Day and Woodgrain embossing folders, Happy Whale Clearlits die, corner rounder, Marina Mist dotted scallop ribbon, white baker's twine, Designer Buttons - Playground, wave scissors (Provo Craft), 1/16" hole punch, Glue Dots, Mono Multi liquid glue, Dimensionals
Makes you say, "Awwwwww," right? (Well, that's what I think, but I may be partial.) I started with a Marina Mist card base and added a layer of Whisper White embossed with clouds at the top of the card. Using the Happy Whale Clearlits die, which includes whale, water splashes, heart, anchor and fish shapes, I cut the whale out of Marina Mist cardstock and the heart out of Real Red. I adhered them near the middle of the card and added a 1/16" Basic Black circle for the whale's eye.
For the water, I embossed a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock with the Woodgrain embossing folder and cut along the top edge with a wavy scissors. I wrapped a piece of Marina Mist ribbon around the bottom of the Bashful Blue cardstock and used Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base. For another pop of red I added a button, with a little flag, to the ribbon.
