Created by Love – an Artisan Award Entry



This is yet another of my Artisan Award entries this past year. I tell you, having all these pictures available have invaluable since starting my new job. I haven’t really had much time to craft these past couple of weeks so using these photos to keep you all entertained.

I love making baby cards and I’m always trying to find a new and exciting way to make them. This card uses the Art by Design stamp set for the salutation, pretty sneaky, huh?

The card base is Creamy Caramel and layered with Very Vanilla and then Blush Blossom. I rounded two opposite corners. On the top left, I rounded two of the layers and tied it in with some vanilla taffeta ribbon.

On the Blush Blossom layer, I used the Pick-a-Petal brass template and dry embossed part of it and then paper pierced along the inside circle. I adhered vanilla pearls from the Pretties Kit to the scallops.

For the centre part of the card, I used Art by Design to stamp the words and punched them out with the large oval punch. I stamped the moon from Nursery Necessities in Barely Banana and clear embossed it, cut it out and adhered to the card base. I also embossed a piece of vanilla cardstock with irridescent ice and punched it out with the small star punch. I added one more vanilla pearl and tied it all up with some vanilla taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
