Over at Cuttlebug Challenges today is the Saturday Sketch hour where every Saturday a different sketch is featured. I don’t have a sketch handy but please head over to the blog to check it out as well as the other great cards my DT friends have made especially for you!
I needed a congratulations card for my brother-inlaw and sister-inlaw who recently announced that they’ll be expecting their first bouncing, bundle of joy this July. I’ve been meaning to make a card for her but couldn’t find the right mojo. I think all it needed was the right sketch. I had the Preggabella image from a Bella swap I did last fall, it’s a great way to have images on hand without having to pick up every single stamp! (even though I do want them all)
Paper – Bazzill, Cupcake Streamers (Basic Grey)
Stamps – Preggabella (Stamping Bella)
Ink – Black (?), Copics, Bics, 05 Black Micron (Sakura)
Embellishments – D’Vine Swirls, Tiny Bubbles (Cuttlebug), Angel Wings (Shimmerz), Branch Punch (MS), Prima Flowers, Red Rhinestone (Kaiser), Mini-Rhinestone, Doodles Parts Shapeabilities (Spellbinders), Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars), Green Printed Satin Ribbon, Yellow Flourish Ribbon
With this card, the BT paper was embossed with D’Vine Swirls and the red band was punched with the Threading Water punch and then embossed with Tiny Bubbles. To add a bit more of an accent, Angel Wings Shimmerz was painted on the Tiny Bubbles, Prima Flowers and the Doodles Parts Spellbinders Swirl. I had a couple of branches that I had left over from a previous project that added in as well. (Don’t you just love spare card parts???) The satin ribbon was picked up from a packaging store a while back and kept for this moment! 😀
Now all I have to do is address and mail it! 😀
Thanks for popping in to visit!! Have a spectacular weekend!
