Today I am sharing a baby card that I made for a friend’s baby shower last week using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Something for Baby. In this case, the new little one is a girl so I used a couple of shades of pink cardstocks. In this case I used the retired Strawberry Slush cardstock and coordinating Designer paper that matches the color for the background layer.
One of the best things about using Stampin’ Up! products is the coordinating colors. For each Stampin’ Up! color there is a matching ink, cardstock, and marker. And all of the Designer Series papers coordinate with the colors so it is very easy to mix and match supplies and you can be sure that your colors go together!
Well back to my card. This is a 5 1/2″ square card with Strawberry Slush and the coordinating Designer Series paper as the card base. The Strawberry Slush is 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock folded at 5 1/2″ to form the card base. Next is a layer of Whisper White cardstock. cut to 5 3/8″ sqaure. Then a piece of Strawberry Slush Designer paper cut to 5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″.
The next layer starts with a piece of the new Flirty Flamingo cardstock which measures 4 1/4″ square. Then a piece of Whisper White cardstock which measures 4 1/8″ sqare and a piece of retired Beyond the Garden Designer Series paper that measures 4″ square. The Baby carriage is stamped using Flirty Flamingo ink on a piece of Blushing Bride Herringbone Designer Series paper. Using up some of my old papers. And I love the way that they coordinate.
The Carriage is mounted on a circle of Whisper White cardstock on a scalloped piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock. The ribbon is a piece of Blushing Bride Stitched Satin Ribbon. Pearl Jewels were used below the ribbon and on the wheels of the carriage.
I hope you have enjoyed my card today.
