Don’t You Love When Things Fall Into Place
I feel like that happened with PP348 this week for the tic-tac-toe challenge. I knew what I wanted to do for a baby girl card, and this challenge helped me achieve my goals.
Here’s the tic-tac-toe board:
When everything fell into place, I chose the top row of ribbon, patterned paper, and die-cut. Here’s my card:
What I Used:
This card is for a friend’s daughter and I chose the cover stamp based on the gift I purchased from her registry. I had fun shopping, but when I picked up the grey and white lamb print hooded towel and washcloth, I knew what stamp I would use. This adorable little lamb is from the retired Easter Lamb stamp. I masked out the “happy Easter” and used Smoky Slate to stamp. Next came the Petal Pink marker for the ears.
The picked the sentiment from A Little Wild stamp set. Both the lamb and sentiments were stamped on Whisper White and matted with Petal Pink. First I cropped all the circles from the Stitched Shapes die set, and then used the Petal Pink marker to color in the stitches in the ditches. Since I have become obsessed with the Subtle TIEF, I used it for both Petal Pink circles. I used dimensionals to pop up both the lamb and sentiment using dimensionals. Die cuts – check.
Both patterns on the he aborable DSP is from Twinkle, Twinkle. The grey background also popped up on dimensionals and mounted it on Petal Pink. I also used both patterns on the baby on the inside of the card. At first I was going to used markers to color the baby and umbrella, but I am pretty darn pleased with my fussy cutting. Isn’t that baby adorable? The stars, baby, and sentiment came from the Moon Baby stamp set. Patterned paper – check.
Last, but definitely not least, is the ribbon. I used the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle and layered it with Smoky Slate stitched ribbon. I tend to be bow challenged, so I just created a square knot. It was easy to get the ribbon under the grey DSP because of the dimensionals. Ribbon – check.
Of course, I can’t have a naked envelope, so I used some of the Twinkle, Twinkle DSP for the flap. I stamped Petal Pink and Smokey Slate to stamp a spray of stars on the front of the envelope as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. As always, I’d love to know what you think about this card, so please feel free to leave a comment. If you haven’t done so yet, please submit your email so you can be notified each time I post to this blog.
Have a Peachy Day!
