Baby Girl Card


It's time for another fun and fabulous Whimsical Wednesday Challenge.  This time the challenge is called Three Times a Charm.  You need to use 3 colors, 3 Cricut cuts, and 3 of an embellishment such as a button, brad, bow, etc.  This time around I actually came up with the challenge, so if you think it stinks you can blame me ;)  *LOL*  Actually I do think it's a bit tricky - but sometimes it's good for force yourself to think a little harder.

I used the Baby Steps cartridge and cut these adorable little shapes out at 2 inches.  I hid some details on the bottle and bib to avoid other layers that required more colors.  I used a My Pink Stamper stamp to stamp "Sweet Baby" on the bib, but it showed up very pale so I went over it with my Sakura Gel Pen.

The embossing is done with the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder.

I hand cut a little banner and stamped Congratulations using an SP & Company stamp.

I added 3 buttons, some faux stitching lines using my Sakura Gel Pen, and plenty of beautiful Stickles.

Be sure and head on over to Whimsical Wednesday today!  The rest of the design team will have lots of fun projects to share and you'll be able to share your own creation for the chance to win an awesome prize :)

Amber, Amber, Amber!!! This was a fabulous challenge, but heck it gave me a hard time..it was nice to be truly challenged. The card on my blog is the second one a made..talk about second guessing myself. Well your card is adorable, and it does not look like you struggled at all. Great color combo, and I love the embossing. Thanks for a great challenge:)
