Buttons and A New Baby Girl!
I made today's card for two reasons: 1) for a coworker that just had a baby girl, and 2) for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Button Theme Challenge 74. I finally had some time to dig in to the new DSP, Cheerful Treat, and thought it would make a perfect card for a new baby! The card design is loosely based on the template found on page 30 of the July Stampin' Success.
CS: Concord Crush, Melon Mambo, Shimmery White, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake
DSP: Cheerful Treat
Ink: Melon Mambo, Concord Crush
Accessories: Stampin' Up Buttons (from the Neutral, Brights, and Subtles Collections); embroidery floss, Crystal Effects, dimensionals, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, sponge, and Snail Adhesive
I hope you enjoyed today's card - I love how it turned out! And if you'd like to play along with this week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, you have until Monday at Noon to add your card to the collection. Please email me at Josee4@aol.com if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques that I use.
