Baby Card!


This was a fun project for me... I thought of this idea a while ago and remembered it while talking to a lady at a workshop... In theory, I thought it would work... And LOOK... It WORKED!!!

Yes this was for my friend again... Its a BOY! YEAH!!

Im sure she wont mind...
Stamps: Little Pieces (Pram wheels), Cheer & Wishes.
Card: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel, Designer Paper in Certainly Celery.
Ink: Ballet Blue, Close to Cocoa
Seasonings: Very small piece of White Grosgrain Ribbon..

The Pram body was made by punching a piece of Bashful Blue with the Scallop Punch. This was cut in half. The "Lace" was made by first punching into some Whisper White Card with the 1 3/8" circle punch. I then used the Scallop punch to cut around the "hole". This leaves you with a very thin scalloped border which you can bend and straighten. The centre of each scallop was pricked with my 'pokey tool'!

I stamped the pram wheels onto Creamy Caramel card with Close to Cocoa ink and punched with the 1/2" circle punch. (If you dont have this stamp set you could always draw this by hand too!)The handle was punched with a normal hole punch.
White details on the pram were drawn with the Signo Gel Pen, and the Brown details drawn with my brown marker.

Any ideas or suggestions for my next scallop project? Someone has already suggested a sheep or a baby's bib!
Im willing to give anything a try!!

Thanks for looking,
