This is my first time participating in Jitterbuggin’s weekly sketch challenge. The challenge this week is to follow the sketch, make a baby card and add some ribbon. Be sure and check out Jitterbuggin to see some fabulous cards.
This card is 5″ x 7″ and all the solid cardstock is from Core’dinations. The white cardstock is from their Gemstones collection. The baby shoe print paper is from me & my BIG ideas that was purchased at Joann’s.
I used several Cricut cartridges to get all the cuts. The lettering in the blocks came from Simply Sweet. I did some faux stitching around the blocks with a black pen to make them stand out. The rattles and the safety pins came from the new Sugar & Spice Cricut Lite cartidge (available only at Wal-Mart) and each are made of several layers.
I used My Community for the baby shoe. I cut it out several times, glued two pieces together and added three white eyelets. Then I threaded the ribbon through the eyelets and added two more layers. I ran the contrast piece at the bottom of the shoe through my Provo Craft Cuttlebug, using the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The shoe is mounted on the card using 3D Pop Dots.
For the lacy square under the shoe, I used a Martha Stewart Punch-Around-the-Page Combo. I made two layers, the top layer being vellum. For a little added interest, I stamped a swirly design in white ink on the wrong side of the vellum
The inside of the card is decorated to match the outside, again using the rattle and safety pin cuts from Sugar & Spice.
