I've been asked to make a card for a new arrival which was a great chance to play with these cute little stamps from Baby Prints in the Summer Mini. I'm also going to use them later in the week (I hope) to make a layout featuring my little nephew, so stay tuned for that.
Here's the card:
I started with this sketch from 365 cards. Yes, really, just squint a bit. OK, a lot. I stamped the baby footprints in Blushing Bride, cut out into a circle, inked the edges and then mounted onto a fancy die cut layer. So far so good with the sketch.
Then I mounted onto some textured Whisper White card stock and stamped the sentiment, with a couple of pearls as a nod to the bling on the sketch. This was when it all started to go a little bit off-sketch. I die cut the panel to sit beneath and embossed it with my ever-favourite lattice embossing folder but given the size of my first panel, I couldn't get it to look right positioned diagonally. So I left it vertical. And that meant the ribbon didn't look right. So I left it off. And I thought it looked better with a square card base so I changed that too. But I promise I did start with the sketch!
