Another Baby Card Swap

Hello again! I decided to help Kim out and sign up for another slot in her card swap. That way I get 8 cards instead of 4- woohoo. Here is the other baby card I made:

The recipe:

Stamps: Curvy Verses, a baby stamp

Paper: various cardstock

Accessories: RicRac, decorative scissors, paper piercer, pencil eraser

Ink: ColorBox Light blue pigment, SU Almost lavendar

I cut out the spotted paper and cut the corners with a tag punch. I edged it with the blue pigment ink. I edged the card with the almost lavendar ink. I stamped "Welcome, baby!" in the upper left corner with the light blue and a silver pigment ink. It shows up much better in real life. I embossed the baby with clear embossing powder and I edged the scallop with the pigment ink as well. I used a moss green ricrac on the card. Lastly, I needed brads, but didn't have 16 of any color that would work, so I used the eraser of a pencil to dip in my ink pads and create spots on the corners of my card. I think it added that little something to finish off the cards. This card was fun to make and I like it better than the previous one. Thanks for looking.
