I have had such a busy day today. I have decided for the first time ever to be part of a swap. In this case a card swap. This particular one is based on ‘make and take’. Which are just quick and easy cards you would demonstrate at a workshop. I didn’t mind what I came up with but that is not what I am posting up today, I will save that for later when I receive all the other ladies works of art.
What I did do afterwards was a beautiful, sweet and simple baby girl card.
The photo is a little yellow, lighting was horrible, but you get the general idea. I also had another play with the Cuttlebug. This folder is one that I just got recently.
- Stamp Set– Nursery Necessities
- Cardstock– Regal Rose, Very Vanilla, Pretty in Pink
- Ink– Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
- Accessories– Regal Rose Ribbon, Cuttlebug
- Tools– Mat Pack, Oval punch, Dimensionals and Tape
I did the “Rock and Roll” method/technique with the elephant and then dimensionaled him up. He just was not sticking out just inked in Pretty in Pink. I also tried to put on some Silver Hodgepodge Hardware and it just would not work……maybe I just chose the wrong piece but that got thrown to the side and out came the ever so reliable Regal Rose Ribbon. I just love the colour of this ribbon, Mmmmmmm….so luxurious!
I punched the sentiment out with the Oval Punch and then cut off the long edges. The end result was something that looks like the Window Word punch ( one that will be coming in the mail tomorrow…. yippee), matted it then dimensionaled. I do like the end result. Now I just have to wait til someone has a bouncing baby girl and I can send it to them……you never know might end up giving to myself. By the way that is NOT funny.
P.S Have uploaded new photo! Much Better.
