I heard that a past downline member of mine recently had a baby girl and I just had to make her a card. I love the typical baby card colours but wanted to get “out of the box” with the color combo on this one.
I was inspired by the Sketch Challenge on SCS this week and used it as my starting point.
The base of the card is Certainly Celery and is layered with Chocolate Chip and then Bermuda Bay. I’ve layered a large strip down almost the centre of Chocolate Chip and Melon Mambo. Hard to see I think but it is textured with the Sizzix Big Shot and the harlequin background.
In keeping with the sketch and wanting to try to use something a little different, I used the Two Tags Bigz Die and cut out two Chocolate Chip tags. I adhered them to the Melon Mambo strip and then folded them around the back. I then layered them with Bermuda Bay scallop circles, 1 3/8″ Melon Mambo circles and 1 1/4″ Certainly Celery circles.
On the top circle, I stamped the large star from Nursery Necessities and punched it out with the large star punch. For the lower circle I used the hello baby from Teeny Tiny Wishes and added a Latte button tied with some linen thread.
Recently I also found out that a mom at school is expecting and I’m super happy for her! So, I thought I’d make a card for her too using the same sketch. I started with the same basic colour palette but switched out Melon Mambo for Apricot Appeal.
As you can see, the layout is basically the same but instead of two circles, I decided to just use to different items – the Build-A-Bear Lil’ Paws embosslit bear and a balloon.
I made the balloon with the 1 1/4″ circle punch and the Boho Blossoms punch for the bottom. I tied on some linen thread and added a little embellishment on the balloon itself.
The wording is from Nursery Necessities and it stamped in Bermuda Bay.
Again, I know – not a typical baby colour combo but that is half the fun, right?
