Fab Friday’s challenge this week is to create a baby card in celebration of Mindy’s son’s recent arrival – congratulations Mindy! Something for Baby seemed to be the appropriate stamp set to use; it was actually the first time I had opened the set. I decided to go with a fun fold, using the baby carriage as my focal image. To jazz up the carriage a bit, I masked around the base and stamped the carriage with the hounds tooth pattern from the Tape It set. I then added some dashed lines onto the carriage top and cut it out, mounting it with a pop dot over the original image to add some dimension; an Island Indigo candy dot was applied to coordinate with the matte.
I wanted the greeting to match the DSP; but, I didn’t want to stamp directly onto the DSP. So, I used the circle stamp from Work of Art to add coordinating circle images onto the Whisper White greeting; then, I surround it with Coastal Cabana ruffle trim to serve as a frame for the focal image when the card is closed. For the bottom of the gift card holder section, I used Bordering Blooms (love that set). Finishing touch was a heart embosslit accented with a medium rhinestone.
