Baby Girl Card

I've made it back again this week for #GDP003, I saw the theme earlier this week and have been racking my brain as to what I could come up with, here it is:



If you haven't already guessed here is the theme for this week:


I made the pram by cutting a circle from framelits, then marked halfway, and in the upper portion divided into 6 to work out where I wanted to fold to create the top of the pram (I did a test run on plain paper, and worked out that I only need score 4 of the 6 lines).

Now the dilemma, I rummaged through my DSP and wasn't happy with anything I was finding, they were all to busy or bright and wouldn't highlight the folds in the pram, that's when it hit me - I was partially taken with  a card from #GDP002 by Guest Design Team Member Carolina Evans, I can use the little flower from the Cottage Greetings stamp set!

Surprise, I just had to use pink! I decided on Blushing Bride and stamped in the same ink to give a delicate effect, it's such a cute little flower, but I needed some thing more..... the squiggly border from Tin of Cards, stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver - just perfect for baby don't you think?

I created 2 sets of wheels, but wasn't happy with either, so I tried out my latest purchase; the Banner Triple Punch - its awesome!  The sentiment is also from Tin of Cards.

Thanks for visiting today,

    1. Thanks Jess - I'm glad I followed through with the idea of folding the card, makes for something a little bit "outside the square"
