Post 161: Congratulations: Baby Card

Hi Friends !

I'd like to share a Baby Card today :) and also wish Kylie and her family a huge congrats on this blessing. This is an A2 size top folding card. I've kept the color scheme with pinks because as Kylie said everyone at her place think it is going to be a baby girl :) how cute is that? so I've kept the colors as hues of pink and added a vintagy look with some hints of browns

Synopsis of the Process:

First I die cut iris cardstock using stitched rectangle and square dies. Then stamped the background in pink and then stamped images and sentiment from various stamp sets using onyx black ink. Then using 2 pink distress inks blended the colors onto the die cuts. On the horizontal paper strip, I created a flowery pattern paper by stamping flowers from the Verve Poppy Birthday stamp in 2 pink shades of distress ink and a grey ink. Then distressed this panel with vintage photo distress ink. I also distressed the big background panel lightly with vintage photo distress ink. Then adhered all the die cuts to the card and adhered the card panel to the card base. In the end, added the bow, heart button and tied a hemp twine through the button holes.  

List of Supplies:

Verve Stamp- Emery Plain Jane (baby elephant)
Verve Stamp- Poppy Birthday (to create flowery pattern paper)
Happy Little Stampers Stamp-  Doodled Flowers (congrats sentiment)
Peek-a-Boo Designs Stamp- Little Wonder (stork and rattle images)
