Oh yeah, Baby!

As promised, I have the pics from some recent baby shower cards that I made.  With both of these I was experimenting with somehow incorporating wraphia in the card design.

Baby Shower Buggy card

For the Baby Shower Buggy card I chose a plaid pastel design paper as the base, and then cardstock in light green and light yellow.  In the green I punched a large and small tag, and in the yellow I punched a medium tag.  On more yellow cardstock I stamped the letters for b-a-b-y with Black ColorBox ink, and punched them out with the Fiskars square punch.  I then used rounded off the corners with another punch.  On the small yellow tag, I

stamped the buggy image with Black ColorBox ink.  I layered the tags and used a small strip of green cardstock to create the hanging part of the tag.  I layered a fuzzy, sparkly piece of yarn around the wraphia, and then wrapped the thin strip of green cardstock around both before gluing it to the back of the tag.  I took a small blossom punch from the yellow cardstock and glued it to the topmost layer of the tag

and green strip.  I wrapped the two ends of the yarn-wrapped wraphia around the design paper, glued them there, and glued the bottom edge of the layered tag to the paper.

Voila — Baby Shower Buggy card — say THAT 10 times fast!

Baby Shower card using pastel colors and Changito Knee-Hugger  rubber stamp

Pastel Changito Knee-Hugger card

For the Pastel Knee-Hugger card I chose another pastel designer paper as the base, used the same light yellow

and light green cardstock, the wraphia, and added some brass-looking fasteners.  Similar to the Baby Buggy card I stamped out b-a-b-y in black ink, punched them out with the Fiskars square punch, and rounded the corners.  I then fastened the letters to the wraphia with the brass fasteners at different angles for a more whimsical look.  I used the mini pop dots to secure the backs of the fasteners to the designer paper, and glued the bottoms of the letters down.  I wrapped the ends of the wraphia around the back of the designer paper, and glued them there.  I

then used double-sided tape to adhere the designer paper to the front of the card.  On the light yellow cardstock I stamped the image of the Changito Knee-Hugger, and embossed the design with clear embossing powder.  I used my special colored pencils to first fill in the images, then with the watercolor brush smoothed out the color.  I angled the light yellow and light green cardstock and glued the pieces together.  I used mini pop dots to fasten the pair to the designer paper.  On the inside of the card I stamped the “welcome baby” message — and presto — another cute baby shower card.

Inside the pastel Changito Knee-Hugger card reads: Welcome to the  world, little one
