I made this card for our friends who have been blessed with a healthy baby girl. Having had two girls myself I know how wonderful daughters are. Anyway, I decided to use the sketch that Vicky set at Sunny Challenges and Creations.
I cut a narrow strip of Pretty in Pink card, punched both long edges using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and attached it to a piece of Whisper White card stock. I then embossed using the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder. I wrapped the Pretty in Pink section with Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon, tied a knot and then attached the whole piece to the front of scored and folded Chocolate Chip card stock. I punched Pretty in Pink card and Whisper White card using the Stocking Builder Punch. I cut down the stocking slightly, attached the cuffs, heels and toes and then embossed the “booties” using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I attached the “booties” to a piece of Whisper White card stock punched using the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch and then added a Chocolate Chip circle cut using the Circle Scissors. This was then attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “welcome baby” from the Short and Sweet stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Chocolate Chip ink. I punched the greeting using the Word Window Punch and then attached it to a Chocolate Chip Modern Label. I added a dimensional to the back of the left hand side and snail to the back of the right hand side and attached it to the card front. Lastly I tied a knot in a short length of Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and attached it over the top of the “booties” using a Mini Glue Dot.
I love this card and I am really happy because I made it to match the Photo Frame which I made earlier for another challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations. I think they look sensational together.
What do you think?
You still have time to play along with this week’s challenge at Sunny Challenges and Creations and we would love to see your take on this week’s sketch.
Bye for now, Kris.
