New Baby Card

Hello, Crafters.

This is another unusually busy card for me, but I think I quite like it! LOL!

My first idea was to heat emboss the three images that are inside the three large hearts, but for some reason two of the three Versamark stamped images just would not pick up the Copper Embossing Powder! 

I gave up after three attempts, and settled for Basic Grey Archival Ink, but I would still like to know why two of the images refused to pick up the embossing powder!

This card is another example of how easy it is to mix and match Stampin' Up! stamp sets. 

I chose the Welcome stamp from the Wood Words Stamp Set, the rabbit from A Good Day Stamp Set, and the Hello Baby stamp is from the Moon Baby Stamp Set. 

Wooden elements have never appealed to me, but I have played with the hearts before on a previous card, and they are really beginning to grow on me!

You can find them on page 196 in the Annual Catalogue and are called  Hearts & Stars Elements. They are excellent value as you get 72 pieces for €7.50/£5.50. 

There's another set of wooden elements in the catalogue called Touches of Nature Elements, which I have been playing with recently, too!

I used my Watercolour Pencils as regular pencils, to colour the rabbit. The colours I used are Basic Grey for his body and ears, with a soft touch of Melon Mambo on the outer edges of his ears, and also for his nose; I used Pacific Point for his bow. 

The Whisper White Baker's Twine bows were tied around the heart frame before they were adhered to the card front, with Fine Tip Glue Pen. 

It was an effort to do this with the Glue Pen,  so when I was ready to adhere the medium heart frames and the small solid hearts, I used Tombow which was so much easier! 
The Designer Series Paper (DSP) that the hearts and images are adhered to is the Naturally Eclectic DSP. 

Then the DSP is on a layer of Pool Party Cardstock (CS), and then a layer of Silver Foil.

The card base is Whisper White CS, with a layer of Pool Party, and a top layer of the Sale-a-bration (SAB) DSP which is called Springtime Foil. 

To decorate the inside of the card I added a layer of Pool Party CS with a layer of Whisper White CS on top. 

When I created the first stamped images on the DSP it didn't work out because I'd cut it too short to fit the three large hearts on.

Rather than waste it, I punched out the three images using my 1 3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch, and adhered them along the bottom of the CS inside the card!   

That's about it from me today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
