Today I wanted to show you the second baby card that I made. As soon as I found out the card was for a set of twins, I instantly thought of Noah's ark.
I also thought of this saying to go along with it.
"They came by twos..." That isn't a stamped image. I typed the sentiment on my computer and printed it out.
I made the card using a retired Stampin' Up! set called Definitely Decorative Noah. I stamped the animals and the boat on Whisper White cardstock and cut them out so I could piece it all together. Before I glued them all in place, I sponged some clouds on the background using a cloud stencil.
I made the waves with the Slit punch. I inserted the cardstock into the punch as far as it would go and punched several half circles in a row.
When I was finished, it looked like this.
I used the pointed piece as the waves and sponged some blue ink along the edges to accent the waves. I used a circle cutter to cut out the layers, and glued them on to a Groovy Guava Carousel Note. I added some Liquid Pearls to each of the scallops.
I took a second Carousel Note and scored it with a ruler and a bone folder.
I scored a line sectioning off three of the scallops. I added some adhesive on the three scallops (above the score line) and adhered the two Carousel Notes together to make it into a card that opens.
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out. It's very rare that I picture something in my head and the actual card comes out exactly how I imagined it. I usually end up having to tweak something because it doesn't work or doesn't look right. Not this card! I hope the mom-to-be likes it.
I think that's all of the details. If I left anything out or need to make something clearer, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by!
