Baby Girl Card
Here is a quick card I whipped up last night for a former co-worker who had a baby girl over the weekend. The card is an A2 card made from white card stock. The patterned paper is from the K & Company Best of Brenda Walton paper pack. Ribbon is from a Martha Stewart pack that I picked up at Big Lots. The onesie was cut from the Straight From the Nest cartridge and was cut a 3 1/2" using the real dial size button on my cricut. This cut is on page 46 of the handbook. The cut is actually of three shirts/onesies hanging from a clothes line. To get the cut I wanted I set the cut up on Gypsy. Since we don't have Hide/Contour feature yet, I simply placed all the items I didn't want to cut off the side of the mat. The sentiment was cut at 1 1/2" cut from the Nursery Rhymes cartridge. The cut is from page 65 of handbook using the Font feature button. The shadow was cut using the Font Shadow feature button. I embossed the onesie with my Sizzix three dots folder using my Cuttlebug. I adhered the cuts with foam tape to provide some dimension to the card. Once I had the card done I spritzed it with some Pear Glimmer Mist to give it some sparkle and added a small Prima flower in light pink and a darker pink pearl to the center of the flower.
