First, this simple baby card. It has a cream base with a white background. Using my Cuttlebug, I embossed the bg with the swiss dots folder, one of my very favorites--seriously I'm addicted to this folder and I use it constantly! This stamp from Stampin' Up set So Many Scallops continues to be favorite of mine and fits perfectly with their scalloped circle punch. I stamped the image in bashful blue and added a coordinating wide blue/white dotted grosgrain ribbon around the layered strip, along with a couple MM safety pins and a metal heart embellishment. For a bit o sparkle, the top corner has 3 baby blue bling gems.
Next, I made this heart shaped card and matching envelope using my Cricut Expression and Wild Card cartridge. LOVE this cartridge---love love love it!!! Wild Card contains tons of specialty shaped cards and has a matching envie for each one, but also has so much many goodies, including a fabulous alphabet font and 2 shadow box templates! Did I mention that I love this cartridge?? ;) The paper is from K and Co. floral dreams collection (JoAnn's), which makes for stunning cards and envelopes with very little effort. Many of the papers in this stack are textured and have special metallic highlights. Absolutely gorgeous!
