The challenge on this card was getting the plastic to shrink flat. It took several trys and it still didn't come out as I'd have liked. This card was made before the new colors came out, so it's with Bliss Blue. It's hard to see but I used Crystal Effects to embellish the inside stripe and circle on the cradle.

Cute card! I love your Baby embellishment.
Are you using your heat gun for the shrinky dink? If so, be sure to have a popsicle stick to hold the plastic down on your work surface (paper plate?) as you heat it.
As the plastic shrinks, it curls in - - but then it curls back out. Once it's done moving (be careful not to overheat), put something on top to hold it flat while it cools - you might want to press down on it for a few seconds. Good-luck!
