Quilted baby girl card
I made this card for a friend of mine whose daughter is going to have a baby girl. While visiting Kwerner's blog I was very inspired by a card that she made using small squares. And then I thought about Maria Bell who has a goal to utilize all of her scraps this week. Well I have a bunch of scraps in my container. So I coordinated different shades of pink to make a baby quilt for my card. I used my scallop rectangle punch on the various scrap pieces. After shuffling the pieces around to sort of resemble a quilt, I thought about what type of embellishments to use. I decided to use buttons, Prima Sprites,pearls and pink floss. The pearls and floss come from a scrapbook kit. I used my scallop scissors to make the edge resemble lace and used my paper piercing tool to pierce holes in the white cardstock layer.
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Little Lady Set and I used Impress' Old Rose for the ink. The ribbon came from Michaels and the bace layer of cardstock is Papertrey Ink White and the pink cardstock is from Bazzill. I think I'm going to make another card like this only this time I will use various shades of blue.
