Here is another card using Beate’s wsc#28. I wanted to make a baby card for Charmaine who just had a baby boy this past week. After looking at all the other samples for this weekends sketch, I thought maybe I did my first samples wrong. So, here’s another take on the challenge with the stamped image in the circle on the sketch.
The card base is 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Chocolate Chip CS folded in half. Next two layers are Blue Bayou CS 4″ x 5-1/4″ & Soft Sky Prints DSP 3-3/4″ x 5″ with Ticket Corner Punch to the corners. Sponged Chocolate Chip Ink to DSP edges. Added a piece of Twill Tape with Soft Sky Dbl-Stitched ribbon layered on top and tied in a knot.
The teddy bear image was stamped on Very Vanilla CS with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored in with an Aqua-Painter and Chocolate Chip ink. Punched image out with a 1-1/4″ Circle Punch. Adhered to a Blue Bayou CS circle punched with my 1-3/8″ Circle Punch. Scallop Punch to a piece of Chocolate Chip CS and punched holes to each scallop with my 1/16″ Circle Punch. Adhere all pieces together and attach over ribbons with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Stamp “welcome baby” to bottom right of card.
Next, for balance, I had to add something to the right upper side of the card. When all other ideas are used…turn to the wonderful Jumbo Eyelets…you can’t go wrong! I wanted to carry the theme of using the twill tape over to this side of the card. I punched 3 holes and attached the Pewter Jumbo Eyelets with my Crop-A-Dile. Before adhering the two pieces of CS to the card base, I adhered a strip of Twill Tape to the back of these pieces, then attached to the base. So, your end result is seeing the twill in the holes of the eyelets.
