CPS 99


IT'S A GIRL! Alicia had little Emma on Monday night, mommy & baby all rosy and healthy. So I was inspired to make a card for a precious little girl. Mommy likes green so I used a soft green with white dots for the background and a soft pink with slightly darker pink dots for the paper I ran through my Cuttlebug with a stamp die cut, then used the embossing folder to add the baby carriage embossing. I tried the alphabet die cut for the first time with this card, wow now that was an experience. They don't cut as nicely as everything else I have tried. But I think I finally learned the trick (after MANY attempts). I sponged Brillance Pearlescent Pink onto the letters and ran ribbon down the side to tie all the carriages together with.
I couldn't stop with one card for this challenge so I made the blue card also. I used my Martha Stewart flower punch to make the flowers, added a little color using my gel pens and topped them off with a little Stickles Diamond glitter glue.
