I chose to use this adorable Baby Animals stamp for my card. They animals reminded me of some stuffed toys my children had as babies. I’m a little bit hooked on faux paper piecing at the moment, so I headed off to my Silhouette to start my card. I was thinking of colouring the animals in pastel colours, maybe with a new baby theme, but at the last minute I used the solid colours from the Sweater Weather digital paper collection by Harper Finch. I was a bit disappointed that the lovely texture in the papers didn’t show up as well as I’d hoped, but I think that may have been because I was using the papers in a relatively small area.
I popped a circular frame cut from chevron embossed Kraft card over the coloured image using 3D pads, then finished the card off with a little twine and a natural coloured button. I’ve left the sentiment off for now as I’m not sure whether it will be a new baby card or perhaps a birthday card for a young boy….
Make sure you head over the see what the other Crafty Girls have been up to! I look forward to seeing your lovely entries 🙂
