Another Baby Card

A bit similar to my last baby card post, but here is the second Baby Card we made at  Langley Stampers Club. The hostess kindly supplied everyone with the papers and die to make both a pink themed card as well as a blue themed card. What luck!!!

As I did with the blue baby card from that meeting,  I chose to turn my card into a topper. Here is the result...
 The card we made was a 4 x 5 1/2 inch bright pink card. I cut that card down into a topper and saved the back piece I had cut off (to be used for the tag).

The pink Tattered Lace buggy was mounted on a Spellbinders pearlescent white scalloped oval mat. That mat was then placed on a rectangle of pink card that had been embossed with a  Swiss Dot EF .
A bit of darker pink mat was added and then off centered onto a  5 /12 inch square card that I had covered with a DP  that reads "Oh Happy Day" printed over and over.

I am considering the cast off back of the original card as a snippet. and used it to punch the  wee tag out of. The word cherish is a Tattered Lace Wedding Words die. It is a handy die set to own as the words are very tiny and come in handy for teensy spaces! I used a snippet of the while pearlescent card for the word Cherish, so with having used two snippets, I am well enroute to entering this card over at Di's Challenge. I looped a bit of fine silver cord around the card and tied the tag on when I made the bow.

I am entering this card in the following challenge
1. Pixies Crafty Workshop - must use snippets


Just a quick reminder that the Rudolph Days Challenge is fast approaching. It will run from May 25th through till midnight on May 31st.  Once again, the winner will have a choice between a Memory Box die or a stamp...prize details to be released on May 25th!

I spotted the TL dies immediately Mo and it's a super new baby card using them.

Know I have been slacking on the Rudolph front, will try harder I promise.
