This week's challenge from the super talented Maki! Maki is challenging us this week to create a card or project with hearts on it (FLLC207)! Yup... it's as easy as that!
I knew just what kind of card I was going to create! I found out this week that my "brother" (he's like my brother! - known him since he was a baby!) and his wife are expecting their first baby! So I knew I wanted to use the super cute "Hello Baby!" stamp set.
I began my card by first stamping the onesie image from the "Hello Baby!" stamp set onto some Flourishes "Color Made Easy" light pink cardstock from the "Poppy" collection using Memento "Tuxedo Black" ink. I also stamped in on to some cute heart patterned paper. I fussy cut each image out and applied the heart papers to the top of the pink cardstock. I also added some white pen detail to the snaps and mini tag on the image using a Inkssentials™ White Opaque Pen.
Then I began to assemble the remainder of my card. I designed to be a Surprise Pop-Up style of card. You check out the video tutorial here for Splitcoaststampers. It's a super fun card to make!
I die cut out the frame for the onesie from the Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Victorian Ovals die set and mounted it on my card front.
Sentimental Favorites" stamp collection. I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to stamp all of my sentiments and verses.
Classic White cardstock, reveals the message:
A baby is a blessing,
a gift from heaven above,
a precious little angel,
to cherish and to love.
This verse is from the "Hello Baby!" stamp set as well. Such a sweet verse too!
