baby carriage card

I created this card to enter in the Papertrey guest star stamper contest and then ended up not entering it (I decided to make a different one that I will share next to enter). I made this cute little card to resemble a baby carriage. It was really quite simple, but if anyone would like me to do a tutorial, let me know. I cut the shape of the card using the largest nestability circle (you could use a punch also). Just make sure you leave a little section that is not cut completely so that your card stays attached. Next, cut the patterned paper for your carriage. Then, cut the triangle shape out to make the shape of the carriage. You do this with the patterned paper first so that you know where to cut the card base and have the matted edge. I used scallop scissors to cut the upper part of the carriage. For the wheels, I cut more circles using the nestabilities. The tag came from a cuttlebug die. I stitched around the edge of the card, but I'm not sure you can see that very well in the photo. Last, attach the tag and wheels using brads. Hope everyone is having a great Valentine's day. I need to go get those cookies in the oven!
