This one was due a few weeks ago, and I just didn't have the time to get to it when or before it was due to be posted. So, I finally completed it just before I left for New Orleans (more on that soon), but didn't have the time to post. Well, I snapped a photo of the card, downloaded it, and took my laptop with me and had every intention of posting it for you all to see....BUT, I just couldn't seem to get an internet connection! Actually, if I went down the street to the coffee shop, I know I could have, but once I left the hotel, (to be honest) I really wasn't thinking of card samples.
So, finally, I'm back home....just arrived a short time ago. Unpacked....or more like I threw all the dirty clothes on the floor in front of the washing machine....it will wait till tomorrow......and then sat down to the computer.
This card was fun....but it really uses only a few SU items. You see, a couple of weeks ago, I attended a scrapbook expo and took a class while there. It was interesting to see how just scrapbook papers and rub ons were used....they used no stamping! The price of the class included a package of papers, and we used a bit during class and took the remainder home. I'm in love with all the dainty patterns in this paper....and the pinks.....perfect for a baby girl card, don't you think?
On my sample, I used a couple of stamped items, unlike the cards made in that class......the "baby" focal point is actually from the recently retired Lovely Labels.....you know, there's just some things I cannot part with! This was stamped, punched, and layered on the scallop circle punch out. The "welcome" is also a stamped addition, punched with the fun, new Modern Label Punch. See below for more info.....
