The talented Joanne is hosting a Clean and Simple Baby Card challenge at The Paper Players this week. I am so excited to ink up one of my favorite sets from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Catalog, Little Cuties, and play along. I hope you enjoy today’s card.
The Stampin’ Schach’s Design Tips
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long when folded.
Piece, baby! The Rocking Horse image was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink twice: once on Tip Top Taupe Gingham Paper (from the Succulent Gardens Designer Series Paper collection), and once onto Blushing Bride card stock. The Blushing Bride saddle and bridle were snipped out and adhered onto the gingham pony.
The Rocking Horse was snipped out and then popped up on a circle created with the Layering Circles thinlits. Pearls and Blushing Bride Baker’s Twine are the perfect embellishments. A Blushing Bride Stitched Satin Ribbon bow and the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder background add texture.
Although I used pink hues with taupe, think how easy this would be to create for a baby boy. Just switch out the pink for a suitable blue. And of course, there is always gender neutral yellow if you wanted to create a few of these cards to have on hand.
If you are a fan of the Tip Top Taupe Gingham pattern paper, you’ll be happy to know the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper is one of the additional FREE Sale-a-Bration items which are available with your order of $50 (before tax and shipping).
I love clean and simple cards of any type, but clean and simple baby cards are among my favorites. I can’t wait to create one for a baby boy. Of course, if you have any questions about the cards I create or the techniques I use, I am only an email away! Until next time, when I introduce you to the newest four legged member of the Schach family…
