I was inspired by the sweet gift box featured on page 41 in the catalog to create this ‘Happy Baby Card’. I stamped the duck pull toy from the Embellished Events stamp set on Crumb Cake cardstock with Chocolate Chip. Then after inking up the stamp with Daffodil Delight, I colored the beak with a Pumpkin Pie marker and stamped on Whisper White. The little yellow duck was trimmed out with my paper snips, adhered and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The duck square is layered on matching Chocolate Chip cardstock with a delicate scallop border along the bottom. To create the scallop border, first trim off the bottom border of the layer. Then using the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, punch out a strip of paper ribbon slightly larger than your layer. Adhere your paper ribbon under your main image, and mount the whole piece to the Chocolate Chip layer. Finally, trim your ribbon even with the sides with your paper snips.
The card base is So Saffron cardstock cut to a traditional 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ size. After folding to a 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″, I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the right front before adding the Baja Breeze layer on top. The Baja Breeze cardstock was cut to cover the front of the card leaving the scallop border on the right exposed. Before adhering this to the base, I ran it through the Big Shot Die-cutting machine with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and tied the Victoria Crochet Trim around it.
I was so tempted to add Crystal Effects to the duck for a glossy finish or add buttons and brads, but I resisted the temptation to gussy-it-up too much. I love the soft classic feel of this baby card!
