Greeting Card-Baby


Greeting Card-Baby

Here is the Saturday card project from Cherish The Thought. I started with a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the background layer then rubber stamped the edging, little bird and "Special Delivery" postal cancellation. The vintage carriage is stamped on cream cardstock cut with a scalloped circle Nestabilities Die. The background layer is edged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The lace and a ribbon is added with double sided tape and the cream piece is glued on with foam dots. Now came the frame for the carriage, this was done with 2 Nestabillities dies, the scalloped circle and the inverted scallop circle. We first placed the inverted scallop circle on a magnetic sheet, then lined up the points of the scallop circle with the points of the inverted scallop die. This was cut with the Big Shot and I got this cute little bubble frame which was edged with the Memento ink then glued to the cream circle.

very nicely done. I see you're really getting into those nestabilities. Love the bubble effect. I don't have the inverted ones yet.

Thanks Wanda, Beth and Yogi. Yogi I love using the nestabilities, but I still only have the scalop oval set. Thanks to Jessie I get to try them out though.

makatiThis card is very pretty Joanne! You are so lucky to be able to take these classes and try out the new (to me at least) embossing and cutting dies that are out there. I like what you have done with this card!
