Everything I love about making cards is in the Robin's Nest Baby Girls card kit I used to make this baby card . . . "to-die-for" colors, glittered cardstock, pretty stickers, and we can't forget the bling! Today I want to share with you a simple baby card - in a couple different versions - one entirely made from the kit, the second adding Delicate Asters from Heartfelt Creations, this month's partner.
Supplies I used for this card include
- Baby Girl Card Set (which includes)
- Little Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock
- Pink Glittered Swirl on Pink Cardstock
- Easter Dew Drops
- Princess Paper Clips
- Subway Art Baby Girl Stickers
- Three embossed cards
- Three Envelopes
- Stamps: Delicate Asters - Heartfelt Creations (2nd version)
- Copic Marker - Light Suntan (E13)
I cut Pink Glittered Swirl Cardstock 5" x 3-1/2". The bottom is trimmed with a border punch. After distressing with brown ink, this piece was popped up on Pink Cardstock cut 5-1/4" x 4" - all matted on a white card base (5-1/2" x 4-1/4").
I then assembled a frame. Cut a piece of white cardstock 3-1/2" x 2-1/2". Use a craft knife to cut out a center piece slightly larger than your sentiment - in this case, 2-1/8" x 1". I covered each side of the frame with strips of striped paper (Little Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock), beveling corners (and distressing each piece).
I centered the baby sentiment sticker in the middle of Pink Cardstock (4" x 2-3/4"), gluing this in the center of the card. The assembled frame is pop-dotted over the sentiment.
To embellish the card, I cut two crowns from the Little Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock and added a Princess Paper Clip...as well as a nice line of Easter Dew Drops along the bottom. To be sure my dew drops were evenly spaced, I taped a piece of cardstock across the card to use as a guide, as well as a ruler for spacing.
I like the clean classic look of this card...but couldn't help but wonder if adding flowers would make it more girlie-girlie. So I added Delicate Asters (Heartfelt Creations) with a crown embellishment. The Delicate Asters were stamped in brown on Pink Cardstock. I used a Copic Marker to add light brown to the center of flowers...and Dew Drops for flower centers, of course.
Let's not forget our envelope! I added some Delicate Asters to the corner of the envelope and colored with Copic Markers to match the card. Great thing about Heartfelt Creations Stamp/Die sets - making quick masks for multiple stamping.
