I adore making baby cards and this one was no exception! ūüôā

Cutest-Baby-Ever---yla

I copied a card I made a couple of years ago (found here) and changed the colors to match the baby outfits I purchased this weekend. (I love it when everything matches!) ūüėČ I made the roll of tickets by cutting a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe¬†cardstock 7/8″ x 4-3/4″. I used a Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment three times in VersaMark ink, embossed with White Embossing Powder and then used a 1/4″ circle punch (retired) to punch the little half circles in between the tickets. The medallion was made by cutting a piece of scrapbook paper 1″ x 12″ and scoring every 1/4 inch using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool, folding it accordion-style and then using a glue gun to secure the medallion to a circle of scrap paper. While assembling the medallion, I ended up burning the LIVING DAYLIGHTS¬†out of my pinky finger with the glue gun rather than mess up the medallion!!! Ah, the things we do for a little piece of artwork. ūüėČ

This card is for a friend who told me about the job I’m currently in. I’ll be celebrating my one-year anniversary in this position in just a little over a week. Accepting this job has been one of THE BEST decisions I’ve ever made and if it wasn’t for her, I would not be in this position. I am very, very grateful for her!

I cased one of my own cards found here (directions on how to create the flower are in this previous post). For today‚Äôs card, I used the 1-1/4‚ÄĚ Scallop Circle Punch, rather than the 7/8‚ÄĚ punch. To add sparkle to the flower and butterfly, I applied adhesive using a 2-Way Glue Pen and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them.

Winter Post

Here’s my Christmas card for the year. I used a bunch of retired items on this card. We recently remodeled our house this fall and the majority of my stamping supplies have been stored out in the garage. It took me over an hour to locate everything I was looking for to make this card — especially the ribbon. I looked through every shelf and box out in the¬†freezing garage and finally remembered it was upstairs in our office in a bag.¬†ūüėČ

Winter-Post-yla

I applied 2-Way Glue to the woman’s sweater and hat and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter on them for some sparkle. Pink is not a traditional Christmas color, but I thought it leant a vintage “sweetness” to the card. ūüôā It’s hard to see in the photo, but I die cut a transparency sheet with the Top Note die and the Big Shot — I didn’t want to hide the swirls of the white panel underneath it (you can click on the photo to get a closer look, if you’d like). The snowflake was¬†very hard to die cut with the Northern Frost decorative strip (retired from the Holiday Mini 2010-2011) and the Silver Glimmer paper — I had to use a shim and then still had to poke the little holes with a paper piercing tool. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Stamps: Winter Post (retired), Teeny Tiny Wishes

Paper: Whisper White, Blushing Bride (Core’dinations cardstock), Silver Glimmer, Transparency Sheet
