Sweet Little Baby

I've had the Bitty Baby Blessings stamps from Papertrey Ink for a while but just got around to unpacking them this weekend. I stamped the little elephant three times - twice on pink paper and once on patterned paper. I cut out the one on the patterned paper and adhered it on top of one of the images on pink paper with some foam tape. Next I cut out the ear from the second pink paper image and adhered it on top of the patterned paper version with foam dimensionals from Stampin'UP!. These are only 1/16th of an inch thick so they are thinner than the foam tape, but still give a bit of dimension to it. I added a Heidi Swapp jewel for the eye and paper pierced some holes in each corner of the olive mat. Sorry the photo is a bit dark.

I experimented with something on the ribbon - I ran it through my Wizard with one of my Cuttlebug border embossing folders to emboss some flowers in it. I passed it through three different times and you can barely see the embossing, so that was a bust on this particular ribbon. I'll try it on some other ribbon, though, because I've seen it on other cards, so I know it works in some situations. If at first you don't succeed....

Hope you had a nice weekend! Thanks for looking.

This is an adorable card. Cool idea to emboss the ribbon, too. I sorta did it once but adhered my ribbon to a strip of cardstock that was a slightly narrower width than the ribbon so it didn't show. Then I ran it through my crimper and it stayed crimped. Haven't ever tried the Cuttlebug though. Gonna have to try that, too!

What a sweet card, different then the normal pink and blue and that's what makes it special. Very nice. Pat
