Hello Sweet Baby Card

We have friends who recently had their ninth child.  I am amazed at the wonderful parents they are and their little girl Brinley is lucky to have been born into such an loving family.  I found the cutest little dress in a pale green and thought I would use that color to create this card, along with baby girl pink.

I began by stamping the cute baby image from Whimsy Stamps Wee One on Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  It was then colored with Copic Markers: E50, E51, E53, R20 (Skin); RV10, RV11, RV13, RV14, G20, G21, G24 (Buggy); C5, C4, C3 (Wheels); Y02, Y06, Y08 (Bird); YR21, YR23, YR24 (Horse); C1, C2 (Ground); BG000, BG0000 (Background)

Once the coloring was complete the focal image was die cut with a Spellbinders Square Die.  Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was then cut just smaller than the square and adhered to the back.  A rectangle was cut from the Gina K. Designs 80# White Cardstock using the largest Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Stackable Rectangles.

For the sentiment the word “baby” was cut four times from green cardstock using the Simon Says Stamp Baby stamp and die set and then adhered together with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  The focal image was placed on the rectangle, along with the die cut word, to determine where to stamp the secondary sentiment, which is from the same Simon Says Stamp set.  Hero Arts Bubble Gum ink was used to stamp “hello sweet” and then the “baby” die cut was adhered using Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  The focal image was adhered to the white rectangle with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.  Green organza 5/16” ribbon from Berwick Offray was tied around the white rectangle and adhered in the back with scotch tape just below the focal image and then a small bow was tied and adhered with a glue dot.

A top folding A2 cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock, however I felt like it needed an accent to highlight the pink in the baby carriage so I pulled out a scrap of pink cardstock and cut it with a paper trimmer to be 1/8″ larger than the white rectangle.  Both rectangles were adhered together using Tombo Glue Runner Dot Adhesive and then adhered to the cardbase with Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card was done.
