A dorable new baby card using retiring Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Balmy Blue Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 4" of large Balmy Blue gingham pattern from Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- 2-1/8" x 2-7/8" from Balmy Blue Cardstock
- 2" x 2-3/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 1-1/2" square of small Balmy Blue gingham pattern from Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper
- scrap of Balmy Blue Cardstock at least 1-3/4" wide
- scrap of Whisper White Cardstock at least 1-3/4" wide
Insert the top half of the large Whisper White rectangle into the Polka Dot Basics Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the card stock inside on a Cutting Pad on the Big Shot Platform at the lowest possible setting. Place a Cutting Pad on top of the folder and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the large piece of Gingham Gala Designer Paper to the smooth bottom half of the dry embossed white rectangle.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of the Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon across the cardstock/designer paper rectangle so it covers the seam between the two pieces. Flip the rectangle over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add SNAIL to the back of the white rectangle. Adhere it to the front of the Balmy Blue card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Best Bunny Set, place the cardstock or designer paper on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the small bunny image from the Best Bunny Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Basic Gray Ink Pad. Stamp it at a very slight angle in the center of the small white rectangle so the tops of the ears are about 3/8" from the top edge.
Use the Balmy Blue and Blushing Bride Markers to color in the bunny image. Leave his belly and tail uncolored.
Mount the top hat image from the Best Bunny Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Basic Gray Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the small square of Gingham Gala Designer Paper.
Use the Basic Gray Marker to color in the band on the top hat.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the top hat by hand.
Adhere the top hat cut out to the small white rectangle so it covers the bottom of the colored bunny image.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the Balmy Blue rectangle and then to the front of the card so it is centered side to side and overlaps the ribbon and designer paper on the bottom by about 1".
Mount the "welcome little one" sentiment from the Best Bunny Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Balmy Blue Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment on one side of the white scrap leaving room to punch it out.
Unlock the 1-1/4" Circle Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area. Punch.
Unlock the 1-1/2" Circle Punch. Slide the scrap of Balmy Blue into the punch. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment circle punch out to the center of the Balmy Blue circle.
Using Stampin' Dimensionals, adhere the matted circles to the card front so they cover the lower right corner of the main image rectangle.
Cut a 3" piece of the Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the card front so it is centered over the ribbon already on the card on the upper right side of the matted sentiment circles.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up two large and one small silver star sequins from sheets of Twinkle Adhesive-Backed Sequins making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere one of the large star sequins to the upper right side of the small bunny image. Adhere the other large star sequin to the lower right side of the matted sentiment circles. Adhere the small star sequin to the lower left side of the top hat image.
