I thought I'd share a baby shower card I made for a friend of my daughter. If you look closely, you'll notice a bit of sheen on the embellishment (baby bottle). I tried something new . . . I sprayed the embellishment with polyurethane. I thought I'd try to add some sheen, but it may have backfired.
Anyway, I'm sharing it so you can see the effects. By the way, before anyone asks, I sprayed it it separately from the card. In other words, it was not on the card when I sprayed it. It was hard to get a good angle, but I'm showing it in two different views.
WARNING . . . I'm really into using up my scraps. I have so many parts and pieces of beautiful papers that I feel the need to use them up.
*premade A2 card and envelope in offwhite
*once again, scrap paper in pink gingham, light pink, dark pink, pink polka dot, light tan, and light green (gotta love it!)
*green ribbon with pink polka dots from Hobby Lobby
*EK success border punch
*CTMH stamp pad in New England Ivy
*CTMH stamp pad in Watermelon for the inking around the edges
*sentiment stamp from My Creative Time (love it!)
*light pink and kiwi green stickles
I cut the baby bottle at 3 inches from the Baby Steps Cricut cartridge. I cut the little flower on the front of the bottle twice because the cut was with the bottle ring and I wanted it in different colors. Because I cut it twice, I had extra cuts that just HAD to be used. Know what I mean???
Okay, so I used the extra cuts to make the little tulip that graces the inside of the card. Isn't it cute?
Anyway . . . that's it. I'm off to help my daughter with this baby shower. I'll try to take pictures of some of the other decorations I made and show in another post. Gotta love it!
Thanks for looking . . . and in the infamous words of a former governor, "I'll be back!" teehee
