Hello everyone! Today's card is my spin on the sketch challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. Here was the sketch Cathy gave us to play with:
I flipped the sketch on its side, so that the smaller curvy piece was on the left. Then, as I looked at it, it reminded me of a cute little maternity dress with a baby bump; and the idea for this baby shower card was born! GET IT? LOL, sometimes I crack myself up.
To make this card, I started with a piece of the retired Watercolor Wonder DSP (in keeping with yesterday's color challenge also), and used the Adorning Accents edgelits and embossing folders to cut and emboss a little dress. I trimmed out the neckline with my scissors and added pearls under the bustline and at the scalloped hem. My card layers are as follows: Strawberry Slush card base, a 5 1/4" x 4" So Saffron layer, and a 5" x 3 3/4" Crisp Cantaloupe layer that I ran through the Tulip Frame embossing folder. I popped the dress up on dimensionals, and then got to work on the sentiment.
For that, I used the Baby Bundle stamp set. I stamped the four-line poem in Strawberry Slush ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and added the "congratulations" underneath in Crisp Cantaloupe. I colored in the hearts with a So Saffron marker, and punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle punch. Then I punched out a 2" Strawberry Slush circle and a 2 3/8" So Saffron scalloped circle. I stuck them all together with snail and then adhered the piece directly to the card front.
I had a lot of fun figuring out this card, and I hope it inspires you to use your dies in a new way! Thanks for stopping by!
