Darling Baby Card
Hi everyone! Today I will be using Fable Friends stamp set to make a card for my soon to be here Grandson Oliver Finn! I am the Mima of Five grandkids. Oliver will be number Six . Five grandsons and one Princess who will be turning sweet sixteen this Year. The Fable Friends stamp set is a hold over from the spring and summer Occasions catalog.
We will be making this card and I will list all the supplies at the end of this post.
To make this card you will need the following supplies:
One sheet of Balmy Blue card stock 8.5 x 11 cut at 5.5 and scored at 4.25
One sheet of 6 x 6 designer series paper Subtles color group cut 5.25 x 4.25
One piece of whisper white card stock 3 x 4.25
scraps of whisper white and balmy blue
layering ovals dies
I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Mother Goose and Goslings to the 3 x 4,25 piece of Whisper White card stock.
This is my first time using the Stamparatus and though it was confusing at first after catching on it was easy!
Making sure the stamp was clean of ink I placed Mama goose on the paper where i wanted her then closed the left plate<. Mama goose will stick to the clear plate.
I then placed the goslings on the card stock where I wanted them and closed the top plate.
I will ink up the Goslings with black ink and stamp them on the card front. Because Mama goose will stamp her tail over the gosling I used a post it to mask the Goslings.
I used water color pencils to color the image. Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie.
Next I used my Big Shot Die Cutter and Layering Oval dies (the smallest oval and the next size scalloped edge). I used a scrap of whisper white to stamp darling baby with black ink. and used the dies to cut my ovals.
All that is left is to assemble the card. Use snail adhesive to adhere the Balmy Blue Gingham paper to the card base.
Adhere with snail adhesive the Mama Goose and Goslings to about the middle of the card. I used one of the rows of checks to Level the piece on the front.
Next adhere the white darling baby oval to the Balmy Blue scalloped oval
Using stampin dimensionals to pop the greeting up right above the Goslings and you are done!
I made a Friend card with this same set using Grapefruit Grove and Very Vanilla color scheme.
