Baby Girl Card


Here is a quick card I made for a co-worker who just had a baby girl this last week. The card base is 4 1/2" X 6 and made from some light pink Bazzil card stock.  The next layer is a medium pink and also Bazzil card stock and cut at 4 1/4" X 5 3/4". The striped paper is by Doodlebug Designs and is cut at 4" X 5 1/2". The baby carriage is from the Cricut Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and is cut at 2 3/4" from the same light pink card stock as the card base. I create a shadow for it with my Gypsy and cut that from lavender Bazzil card stock. I ran the top light pink layer of the carriage through my Cuttlebug and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder and added a piece of lace to the carriage top.  I tried not to get the wheels when I embossed but wasn't totally successful. The brads in the carriage wheels and light pink glitter brads from 7 Gypsies. I inked the edges of everything with Memento Dew Drop Angel Pink ink and used my corner rounder to round the corners. I mounted the carriage with one layer of foam tape so it would pop from the card base. The ribbon is some medium pink ribbon I picked up at Michaels. The stamp is one of the $1 Clear Stamps from Michaels and says Sweet Little One. I used some Tuskineko Brilliance Ink in Pearl Coral. I have to make a birthday card for my daughter yet this weekend so hope to have another post tomorrow sometime.
