So I’m standing in the checkout line at a local grocery store and see this great little magazine. I HAVE to buy it. Then when I get it home, I’m inspired – not by what is inside the magazine but by the outside.
I fell in love with this colour combo and right in time too – I needed a baby card! Here is the card a little closer up:
Really, this card is all made from scrap pieces of cardstock. I started with an Apricot Appeal card base and then grabbed a layer of Bashful Blue cardstock. I stamped it with the star from the Wanted stamp set in Versamark ink. I then took a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and adhered a piece of striped pumpkin grosgrain around it.
I took a narrow piece of white cardstock and, using my corner rounder, make a scalloped edge. I punched holes in each scallop with my 1/16″ hand held punch. I adhered behind the pumpkin piece and then to the card.
I punched out a Chocolate chip scallop with my scallop circle punch and layered it with a 1 3/8″ pumpkin circle and then a Whisper White 1 1/4″ circle. I stamped the teddy bear from Family Accessories in Jet Black StazOn and watercoloured with my aquapainter and re-inkers.
Lastly, I added ‘welcome’ from Warm Words in Chocolate Chip. Quick. Simple. Done.
