Congrats X 2 Card

What’s up blogosphere? Not much shaking here, except I would prefer that it was summer already. I’ve reached my limit of cold weather…that is an understatement. All in due time I suppose.

Today’s project is a twin baby boy’s card. I used a few techniques for this card: stamping, colored pencil coloring and blending, painting chipboard, embossing. It was fun and I love how it turned out.

I started with a top fold card base that measured at 11″ x 4″, which I scored at 5.5″ using my scoring board. I cut the scalloped base using the smallest of my Spellbinders oval scalloped die.

I stamped the cute little onsie with a stamp I got from the bargain bin at Michaels for $1.50 which is the same bin I found my Thank You stamp from my last post.

I colored the edges with colored pencils and used my colored pencil blender to smudge the edges. I colored the heart in blue and went over it with some Glossy Accents.

I cut a blue base about .25″ larger than the stamped area and adhered it using sticker tabs. Next, I added a blue ribbon from a .25″ baby blue ribbon I had in my stash. I used a Zot to place it on the hanger.

I have a chipboard collection I purchased from Hobby Lobby over the summer clearance for $4.00. From it, I punched out one of the banners and painted it black with acrylic paint. I also used a 2 and an X from the same collection and painted it with blue acrylic paint. I stamped my greeting — congrats — with a stamp I found in the dollar bin at Target (as part of a stamp collection) and embossed it with white powder.

I adhered the stamped picture onto my card base with sticker tabs and glued my chipboard with Aileen’s craft glue.

I punched little hearts out of blue with a punch I got out of the same Michael’s bargain bin as the stamp!

I glued those little hearts all around my card with Aileen’s glue.

I added a black scalloped heart to the inside of my card to brighten it up a bit. The heart was cut on my Circuit machine using, yes, you guessed it, my Doodlecharms cartridge!

This completed my card. It’s off to its sweet little recipients with love and joy!
