Products used: Imaginisce All Kinds of Happy Collection

Instructions

  •  Cut a piece of paper the size of a folded card.

  • - Ink around the edges in black.

  • - Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to go around the card and tie in a bow.

  • - Attach to the back of the paper using DST.

  • - Sew paper directly onto the card, sewing through the ribbon too.

  • - For the card sentiments I used a Whipper Snapper Design stamp.  Colour in using markers and highlight in places with a white pen.

  • - Attach all embellishments to the top of the cards: the pink scallop is a painted chipboard  (Chippies) which is then lightly sanded and stuck using double-sided tape.

Once everything is in place go around the edges of the paper and lift and tear in places to give an aged look.

  • - Attach all embellishments to the top of the cards: I decorated some chipboard buttons using scraps of the Imaginisce paper.  Sanded the edges and then inked.  I threaded cotton through one and ribbon through another and attached to the card.

Large card using QuicKutz dies, Bazzill Bling cardstock, Heidi Swapp Clear Stamps and doodling.

Card size: A5

Note* The Bazzill Bling cardstock is thick enough to use as a card.

  • Score and fold the Bazzill cardstock into the required size.
  • Stamp one corner from the Heidi Swapp Baby Corner set.
  • Stamp the other corner on a separate piece of the same card. Cut around the stamped image and ink the edges with blue ink. TIP* To ink the edges simply run the paper along the pad.
  • Glue the corner onto the card.
  • Mat a piece of darker blue Bazzill Bling onto a piece a yellow Bazzill Bling cardstock. Stick onto card adding blue gingham ribbon along on edge .
  • Doodle as shown with a white pen or paint dabber. You can either do this freehand with a pen or using one of our doodling templates (which I did here).  Dot each of the circles with a blue Sakura Gel Pen giving a glossy raised appearance
  • Cut QuicKutz Stork shape. Using light brown chalk , chalk the beak, the edges of the wing and the belly and tail of the bird. Cut the Baby shapes and stick both onto card.
  • Cut three QuicKutz Button tabs contrasting the buttons and the tabs; glue onto card.
