Sketch Challenge - Baby Shower Greetings

 Good evening!  Wow it's been awhile since I've posted as I've been trying to get back into the swing of things after convention.  We've been on the run since we got back and this weekend was actually first time I got down into the studio since before convention, boy did I miss it.  When I saw this weeks Stamping 411 challenge sketch I knew it would be perfect for a baby shower I went to earlier this afternoon.

This card uses the Baby Bundle stamp set which I love because of all the little pieces that are included.  For the background I ran a piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder before matting it on Chocolate chip cardstock and the Pink Piroutte cardbase.  For the main stamped image I stamped the greeting with Chocolate chip ink and then colored the hearts in with Stampin' Write markers.  I tied Certainly Celery 3/8" Taffeta ribbon around the cardstock before matting on Rose Red card stock and used the Scallop Trim border and corner punches on the mat. 

For the accents I stamped and cut out several of little pieces and cut and colored them.  3 smaller pieces were glued to the bottom right corner.  I punched holes in the 3 larger cutout pieces and used White Baker's Twine to tie them around the ribbon.  The final touch are 3 silver brads in the top right corner.

This card turned out exactly like I pictured, love it!  I love when I get to give a card I make to someone in person so I can see there reaction, it's too fun.

Hope you have a great week and happy stamping,

Pin It!
