I decided to make an unconventional “baby card”.
I am absolutely crazy for Elizabeth Craft Designs release of their two Happy Frame die sets. For this DT card I used this set:
Let’s make this card:
Step 1: I found this adorable digital stamp, at Di’s Digi Stamps.
(You go straight to her online store by clicking on the blue link above)
It’s called “Hello Bumblebee”. Size, print and color the image. I colored it with Copic Markers. I added shading to the background with PanPastels. Cut out your colored image with the 3rd. to the largest die in the below set on the left. Then cut a brown mat with the 2nd to the largest die in the set on the right. Adhere the stamped layer to the brown scalloped mat:
Step 2: Cut out the die four times out of wood look cardstock. from the set called Happy Frame from Elizabeth Craft Designs. (pictured above with link to the store in blue.) I chose a piece from this paper pack:
Here is the assembly video: Happy Frame assembly video
Note: Cut your four frame pcs. to 6.25 x 6.25″. Your finished frame will be a 6.25″ square.
Step 3: Using the dies on the far right below cut two pink and two white layers for a small pink daisy and white daisy. Repeat for a smaller daisy of each color. Cut the circle center pc. for the daisies with the pc. shown below on the right side of the picture below:
This set is from Docrafts and is called: Glorious Gerbera. I added a little darker pink Copic marker from the middle out to the pink daisies.
Cut the leaves only (two of each) from this set: 1368 – Garden Notes – Dahlia:
Cut two of the longer die from this set:
Cut enough of the “bee parts” to make 3 bees from this set:
Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock from this stamp set below:
Cut out sentiment with the 2nd to the smallest die in this set from QuicKutz:
I used PanPastels to add a little blue color to the edges.
Choose a designer paper and cut a square that measures 6.25″ x 6.25″.
Step 4: Adhere the designer square paper behind the wood frame. Adhere the image stack to the center and then decorate the frame as shown.
Here’s a look at the inside of the card:
It was made by creating a base card by scoring a pc. 12″ x 6″ pc. white cardstock at 6″. Then fold over. Attach two squares of the same designer paper. Then I added charm dies, banners and the word Congratulations from these dies.
Thanks so much for taking a look. I know you’re time is valuable so I appreciate it. I can’t wait to see what you make if you choose to take the challenge!
