New Baby Congratulations
Hello everyone! I am back to share another card with you featuring the Penny Black Inc., Betsy Bluebell stamp set, this time in the form of a baby card.
I was inspired by the CASology “News” challenge for this week, to use a baby theme for this card. I began by stamping little Betsy with some StazOn ink onto watercolor paper. I watercolored her with my Derwent watercolor pencils and fussy cut her out once all the watercoloring was dry.
Cutting a 4 3/4″ square card base from watercolor paper, I stamped the word “baby” repeatedly across the middle of the card. On a piece of vellum paper, cut into a banner, I stamped the sentiment “congratulations on your…”, from the Cindy Etchinaw Big and Small Says it All set, with some StazOn ink.
With these elements in place, I began moving onto some die cutting…
Now that all my pieces were ready, I began putting the card together… I adhered the frame to the card base with foam tape and little Betsy tucked under the frame edge, with foam tape behind her. The clouds are adhered to the frame with regular adhesive and I tucked the vellum banner behind Betsy with a bit of foam tape.
And finally, to finish everything off, I stamped a continuation of the sentiment on the inside, stamping out the words “new baby” with the same Cindy Etchinaw stamp set used on the front of my card.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on the CASology challenge for this week! I had a lot of fun creating this card and playing around with the Betsy Bluebell stamp set.
