Baby Shower Card
For this card, I started with white cardstock for the base, then used a cypress green cardstock to punch a lace pattern in with a Martha Stewart border punch. I cut a circle-patterned paper to layer over the green, then took a solid pink, cut a 1" strip, and adhered it on top of the green. I thought the solid pink was too plain, so I used an Impress starburst/flower rubber stamp (www.impressrubberstamps.com) with VersaMark watermark ink to stamp the image across the pink. Then I tied a pink polka dot grosgrain ribbon to cover the seam between the patterned and pink papers. For the embellishment, I stamped "Welcome Little One" from the Stampin' Up Riveting set and punched it out using a 1" circle punch. Then I stuck it into an inverted bottle cap using a large Zot Dot (adhesive dot). Behind the bottle cap, is a scalloped circle from the Easter 2010 cartridge, cut at approximately 2". I adhered the scallop to the card with pop dots to add dimension, then used another Zot Dot to hold the bottle cap onto the scalloped circle. ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
