CCMC-SUM Week 2 – Celebrate Baby

We are at the end of Week 2 for the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Collection 2014!  Today we celebrate by sharing a challenge with EVERYONE (only our subscribers see our daily projects).  It’s not too late to join!  Check out Create with Connie and Mary for more details!

 

I love the soft, muted colors in the Lullaby Designer Paper and this color challenge is taken directly from it!

 

CCMC-SUM Week 2

And here is my card…I love the little mobile in this Celebrate Baby stamp set!

 

CCMC-SUM02 Celebrate Baby

Here are the details:

  • The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Coastal Cabana cardstock, folded in half.
  • I embossed the 4 x 5 1/4 layer of Baked Brown Sugar with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder.
  • On top, I added a 2 1/2 x 4 piece of Lullaby Designer Paper (chevron pattern).
  • I cut a 2 x 3 1/2 piece of Whisper White and stamped the mobile image on it with my Baked Brown Sugar and Hello Honey Stampin’ Write Markers.  I stamped it again in Coastal Cabana Ink and cut out the top of it, then placed it with Stampin’ Dimensionals over the original image.
  • I used the Scallop Tag Topper Punch at the top and added Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon, tied with Coastal Cabana Thick Twine.
  • Along the bottom, I add a strip of the Scallop Dotted Border Punch from Hello Honey cardstock.
  • I placed the tag on the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and added a little Rhinestone on the mobile for extra bling.
  • I also cut a narrow strip of Coastal Cabana cardstock and stamped Welcome with Coastal Cabana Ink on it, then tucked it under the tag.

So sweet, isn’t it?  Perfect for a baby card!
