I made this card for my neighbour who had a baby girl a few days ago - and for the SCS Free for All Friday Challenge from a few weeks ago - F4A156 - Go to your Happy Place - where you are to use colours that make you happy eg: bright, pastel, muted tones etc. I used pastel. See this link for details on this challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...a-t568897.html
Apologies for the ribbon shadow. I tried taking a photo with the sun directly on the card but it made the image all washed out so had to put the card at a slight angle instead.
The adorable little baby hedgie/flower frame is from the Penny Black clear set Bundle of Joy and was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured with Prismacolor + Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Odourless Minerals Spirits. I lightly chalked around the image with blue chalk. I went to town with the glitter and added glitter to all the flowers as well as the frame. I corner punched this main panel and popped it onto pink cardstock that was diecut using one of my new Spellbinder Decorative Labels One S4-379 dies and my Big Shot. Oh my gosh - I LOVE these dies - they are so pretty and feminine. I added a little Kaisercraft pink gemstone in each corner then popped the panel up on dimensionals.
The embossed white panel was embossed using a Crafter's Companion Die'sire Embossalicious EF6 Floral square 6" x 6" embossing folder then corner punched.
The pink base was made using a Martha Stewart Vintage Floral punch-around-the-page corner/edge punch. I also added a pink gemstone to each corner.
Lastly, I made a pink bow with my Bow Easy and sewed on a pink heart button, added Fray Stop to the ribbon ends and glued the bow on with some Fabric Glue.
