The challenge this week on Crafty Card Creators Yahoo group is to make a card for a baby. This is my card for that challenge.
I used green and lavender so that the card can be used for a boy or girl. To make the bib I used Nestabilities oval and scalloped ovals to cut the shapes. After adhering the ovals together I used a round hole punch to cut out the neck opening and trimmed off a couple of scallops and cut the top edge straight. I used a white gel pen to add dots to the scalloped border.
The Welcome stamp is an old one from Stampin Up and the Sweet Pea stamp is a $1 stamp from
Michael's. The stamp has the pea next to the words so I used a black marker to color the part of the stamp I wanted to use and then cleaned it off and colored the other part. You don't have to use your stamps exactly as they come! When using a marker on a stamp you have to huff on it after you color it because the ink dries really fast. The baby and the pea are colored with pencils.
