Taking time out from finishing up my projects for the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop to post this cute card I designed for this week's Global Design Project challenge (GDP003) which is a Baby Theme.
This card begins with a card base of Bermuda Bay. A piece of Pool Party cardstock was stamped with the Brushstrokes background stamp using Versamark ink. The edges of the cardstock were sponged with Pool Party ink. A piece of Tear & Tape Adhesive was placed approximately 1-1/4" above the bottom edge of the Pool Party cardstock. The top edge of Watermelon Wonder 1" Dotted Lace Trim was finger pleated along the adhesive with the ends of the ribbon folded to the back of the cardstock and adhered. A piece of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack was adhered to the Pool Party cardstock using Stampin' Dimensionals. A piece of Whisper White Seam Binding Ribbon was wrapped around the cardstock and Designer Series Paper and knotted on the left side.
A piece of Whisper White cardstock was stamped with the striped background from the Tag Talk stamp set and punched using the Label Bracket punch. The label was adhered at the right side of the piece of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack using Stampin' Dimensionals. I moved the orientation of the label so that the stripes followed the vertical pattern of the Brushstrokes stamped image.
The Welcome Baby image from the Tag Talk stamp set was stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Pool Party ink and punched with the 1" circle punch. The stamp was cleaned and stamped again on Whisper White cardstock using Watermelon Wonder ink. The "B" at the center of the image was punched out using the 1/2" circle punch. The "B" was adhered to the center of the Welcome Baby using a Stampin' Dimensional and the Welcome Baby was adhered to the center of the Bermuda Bay striped label using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The inside sentiment area was lined with a piece of Whisper White cardstock with a piece of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. The "welcome, baby" sentiment from the Petite Pairs stamp set was stamped near the upper center of the liner using Watermelon Wonder ink. The "so glad you're here" sentiment was stamped below the previous sentiment using Pool Party ink.
A piece of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack was adhered to the envelope flap of the Medium Whisper White Envelope.
The great thing about this card is that all the Designer Series Paper pieces used for this card come from a single sheet of paper from the Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack. There were even a few pieces left over that can be used for punches later. I really love that Stampin' Up! went to the 6" x 6" size for their paper stacks. It's a much more versatile size.
Be sure to check out all the other submissions for this challenge at the Global Design Project. You'll see some really adorable ideas for baby-themed projects.
Don't forget to come back on Friday for the Stampin' Addicts Winter Holiday Blog Hop!
Have a great day!
