Paper craft project no. 357: You are heaven sent one layer card


Hi, everyone! My second pink/girly card in a week! Because my baby was my inspiration back in January when I was designing and illustrating Heaven Sent, the stamp set we're spotlighting today, I felt it fitting to make a card for her -- the first card she'll receive when DH and I welcome her into the world in August. I've started planning and making her baby memory book and this card from us will be in there. It reflects exactly what we think of her :o)

To create this one layer card, I cut out a scallop border from scrap paper, placed that on the card base, and stamped the grunge floral strip in rose red Memento ink. Then I moved the scallop border another inch for the second border and stamped the mixed media grunge floral in lulu lavender Memento ink. I stamped the teddy bear and newsprint in spun sugar Distress ink all over the remaining area, stamped the sentiment (the "you are" is from Sentiment Builders: Happy), and sponged a little spun sugar Distress ink. I finished the card by defining the scallop borders with black gel pen.

I hope you'll come check out the beautiful cards that the STAMPlorations girls and super wonderful guest designer Darnell made featuring this sweet baby set! You'll find links to all our projects here. Hop along and you can win one of the prizes we've got up for grabs :o)


See you tomorrow for the last day of the hop! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to smile :o)

  9. Incredible one layer card, Shery! (For a moment, I thought you'd used the bump profile from BabyBump for your scalloped border!!). It never ceases to amaze me how much you can pack into a one layer card, and it never looks too much!

  21. Great card. I love the colors but most of all I like how you inked the scalloped edges and I checked to see if it was a stamp in your set. Cool.
