baby rattle card


There seems to be a theme to my cards lately! lol I didn't not plan it, but I seem to be making quite a few baby cards lately. This is the last card that I entered in the Papertrey Gueststar stamper contest (sorry to flood you with them all at once). I thought this card turned out so cute and was my favorite of my submissions. It's funny how different people are drawn to different things. I drew the template for the card, traced it and cut it out. I sponged the white cardstock pink with Palette ink. Then, I used the Faux Ribbon set to make the center line on the top. Next, I used the little flowers from Butterfly Kisses to make the pattern on the top of the rattle. The sentiments came from the Mixed Messages stamp set and the little flowers from Beautiful Blooms. I'd be happy to provide the template for personal use if anyone is interested. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

I love the baby cards.You should visit www.card-scents.com they have scents that are made for card stock. The baby powder one would be just perfect for your baby cards.
