One of the girls in my stamp club just had a baby last month before Christmas. I needed to send her a card and this is it! I started with this sketch challenge from Stamper's Dream. I made this card a 4.25" square to fit the sketch. These are nice small cards that fit into a regular invitation size envelope (an A-2 envelope). Just something a little different than the regular size.
The baby is a girl (did I even need to say that?), so I went for SU's Parisian Summer dp(soon to be retired). It matched up nicely with Pink Pirouette and Perfect Plum. The plum looks a lot darker in the picture than it actually is. I stamped this image from SU's Punches Three in Perfect Plum and added the little buttons. There are little stars there on the stamp, and it didn't look right on this card, so I used the buttons. The image is layered on Pink Pirouette which was cut and embossed with the Labels One nesties. I sponged some plum around it to make it pop off the dp more. It's also on dimensionals. Then I added the Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon. This was a last minute change because the card looked so bare without it. The sides of the plum panel were punched with a new Martha Stewart punch I got at my LSS last weekend. It's called Flourish Border punch. Isn't is cool? There's not much more going on with this card. Pretty simple. The inside sentiment is from a clear stamp set I got at JoAnn's called Simple Thoughts-Baby by Cloud 9 Design. That's all folks...thanks for stopping by!
