This is the card I decided to make for my daughter for her baby shower this weekend. I have seen it done several different ways on the web.
Paper - Pretty & Pink, Whisper White - SU
Accessories - Large Scallop Die, Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots, Martha Stewart Punch, Heart Punch, circle punches
Embellishments - Pink Ribbon
Fold a piece of 5 1/2" x 11" CS in half. With the fold on the top, leave 5 scallops showing on the large scallop die and pass it through the big shot. Then run the front side through the embossing folder. Cut out about 5 scallops for the opening in the center of your image - like a piece of pie. I punched out a strip of whisper white using my Martha Stewart punch and glued it down for the trim of the carriage. I used my
1 1/4 " circle punch for the wheels and my heart punch to decorate it. I have seen the wheels done with 1/2" circles inside, as well as with buttons. I then used my handheld heart punch to decorate the carriage top with hearts and added my ribbon. You could also use some brads in place of the ribbon. I liked how the card turned out and can hardly wait till my daughter sees it.
We have a busy weekend ahead of us with a lot of fun planned. Next week I'll post some more goodies I made for the shower. Thank goodness Rachel helped me wrap up all the goodies her Mom and I got for the shower or I would still be wrapping!! Have a wonderful weekend. The leaves are changing colors and the mountains look really beautiful here!
Thanks for stopping bye,
Nancy, Rachel & Sarah
