Sweet Stampin' - Wheels

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well that's me back from my fabulous holiday in Majorica. Basically I sunned myself, ate and drank (only soft drinks though!) the whole time. My hubbie and I had a lovely relaxing holiday which was perfect after having a hectic year, and a little health scare a few months ago. Now I feel I'm back on track again. so it's onwards and upwards as they say.

Anyhoo it's that time of the week again, it's Sweet Stampin' time and my turn to share my Design Team card with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Wheels'. 

For my 'wheels' card I used an old baby digi stamp from Pink Petticoat to create a Christening card - this was a commissioned card so I've covered up the baby's name on the tag.


Here's What I Did
I used an 8" x 8" white card base which I matted and layered with some patterned paper and coloured card. Using a smaller piece of the pink card I punched along the bottom edge and matted it with the same patterned paper as before, then wrapped a piece of ribbon around it - this was mounted onto foam pads and added to the card base.

The digi stamp, sentiment and the baby's name was printed directly onto some white card and cut to size. The pram was printed out twice onto colouring card stock and coloured with Copic pens. both of the prams were then fussy cut out and added to the topper using foam tape to give extra dimension. The completed topper was added to the card base along with die cut flowers and a flourish.

To finish off I added buttons for the wheels, the name tag and a few pearls.

Here's What I Used

Dies: Britannia Multi Rose 'Medium', Marianne Designs 'Swirl Rose-LR0162', Cheery Lynn Designs 'B11-Fanciful Flourish'
