Happy Monday everyone!
I got a call from my cousin this afternoon asking if I could make her a baby card. Of course I would! and I knew exactly what I wanted to make! I saw a tutorial from Marlene Peter’s Blog on how to make a super cute punch duck. I was missing one punch but of course we’re creative, so I just substituted one of punches I didn’t have. I wanted to participate in a couple of challenges and what do you know? I found a colour challenge from Create with Connie and Mary – CCMC 133 AND a sketch challenge from Stampin 411′ SSC 186. So thanks to these great sources of inspiration……..I was able to make a pretty cute card..if i do say so myself…
HERE’S MY CARD! I’m actually really proud of it! and how cute it turned out!
Isn’t it adorable??? I love it! hehe Great colors for a baby card! and Perfect layout!
On marlene’s blog she used a large word window punch for the body, but I don’t have that punch, so I just used another circle punch. I also make my duck smaller than hers because I needed a smaller duck lol. I also cased her ribbon on the bottom of the duck as water. It adds great texture and dimensions to the card!
Ribbons!! they’re so great! I actually won this ribbon at one of my Demonstrator’s meeting! 🙂 and I finally have the chance to use it! I don’t generally use a lot of yellowish tones with my card… but I think this one turned out FANTASTIC! 🙂
Happy Stampin’ Everyone!
