I was so excited to make this pink new baby card today as I got to use one of my new embossing folders – the polka dot Xcut embossing folder.
I am entering this card into the Crafting by Designs challenge where the theme is ‘stitching’, the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which has a clean and simple (CAS) theme this week and Addicted to CAS where the theme is ‘stitched’.
I started with a 5 x 7 inch baby pink card and then took a matching pink card and ran this through my Big Shot Plus using a 6 x 6 inch Xcut polka dot embossing folder and mounted this on the card using double sided tape.
The sentiment is a sticker from DCWV which has stitching in white around the border of the it’s a girl message. I stuck this to some more of the same pink card and cut this out leaving a border, then I added this to the card using double sided tape. Initially I tried this with a further stitch effect border using Ranger liquid pearls, but I thought it looked too fussy against the polka dot embossing, so I trimmed the border to leave it with just the printed stitching on the sticker.
Finally I stuck another DCWV sticker, this one a round pram icon, to more pink card and then fussy cut this out and mounted it using foam tape.
