Scallop Baby Buggy



I know a couple of 'moms to be' that are expecting baby boys in May and I'm in need of some non-girlie cards (which are not my usual creations.) All I needed to get started was just the right color, patterned paper, image, and fun layout. Thanks to Taylor for another fabulous sketch this week, Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #110!



Scallops, scallops... The patterned paper squares were punched with the 1 1/4" Square Punch and adhered to decorative squares punched from the Scallop Square Punch. The ribbon was wrapped around the card front with a little peek of a scallop edge punched from the Scallop Edge Punch. The baby buggy image from the Puns from the Past stamp set was inked up in Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.





Stamps: Puns from the Past
Paper: cardstock & patterned paper (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft
Other: Heat Tool, Clear Embossing Powder, Scallop Edge, Scallop Square & 1 1/4" Square Punches, Circle/Scallop Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Ribbon & Button (Taylored Expressions), Linen Thread
