Cute & Cuddly – PPA38

My friend and co-designer for Create, Mary Brown, let me know about a sketch challenge this morning over on Pals Paper Arts.  I've played with their challenges before, but hadn't been over there for a while…it was a good reminder to check them out!  Sketch PPA38 was really fun.  I needed a baby card for a friend of mine who just had a new grand-daughter born a couple weeks ago.  I bet she is thrilled (and I hope she doesn't see this before I get it mailed to her!)  At least the inside will be a surprise…I'm not going to show it here!  lol!


I started with a base of Pretty in Pink cardstock and layered on one of the prints from Pawsitively Prints Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!  The one made for the Build A Bear dies!  I love the small prints in it.  I added a strip of Whisper White and added two Scallop Edge Punch pieces in Certainly Celery cardstock.  I wrapped the Pretty in Pink Striped Ribbon around and tied a knot.


For the focal element, I stamped the Sweet Little Baby scallop square image from Stampin' Up!'s Cute & Cuddly stamp set three times on Whisper White with Basic Black Classic Ink, then stamped it again three times on Pretty in Pink cardstock.  I punched out the Whisper White images with the Scallop Square Punch and then cut the centers 3/4" to fit inside the squares and capture the Sweet Little Baby words.  Those are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals on a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock and I layered that on Whisper White.


I think this made a very sweet baby card and it was pretty easy to put together thanks to the fun sketch!

This card is simply adorable and I can see that it could be used for mulitple occasions.   Combined colors of pink and green are a fav of mine as well.  THANKS for the inspiration!  🙂

So soft and pretty – that pink and green make a great combo!  Love how you framed your words in black and white – perfect touch!  Thanks for playing at Pals Paper Arts!
