Sweet Baby card



I fell in love with this card by twoboysandagirl on SCS. See her card here.
I LOVE how she outlined the stamped images in black. I just had to give that a try! The card base is Bashful Blue. I put a strip of So Saffron monochromatic designer paper on the inside edge. I cut 1/2 inch off the front edge of the card and then used my corner rounder to scallop the edges. You just take the corner guide off and punch side by side across your card. Then I put a piece of Certainly Celery designer paper on the front of the card. I put three circle scallops in white down the front. I cut out each image, outlined them in black and popped them up on stampin' dimensionals. I finished it off with a little greeting stamped in basic black at the bottom of the card.

We are having a heat wave here in Minnesota. Everything is melting. It's been in the 30's and 40's. My husband put in an ice rink last week when it was really cold and now it's all mush. Oh well. We know there will be more cold weather coming.
