Baby, We've Grown

Hello crafters.  I'm back with some more projects to share with you over the next few days :)

First a new baby card we made in class earlier this month.  I love that large polka dot embossing folder.  We embossed white vellum card and overlayed it over Pool Party card which was cut slight wider than the vellum to give that little border. 

The stamp set is Baby, We've Grown.  We used Memento ink pad to stamp the images as the colouring in was done with Stampin' Up!'s Blendabilities.  Fabulous alcohol ink markers. Oh, and the little heart is from Something to Say stamp set.  There is a cute punch pack that coordinates with the set.

As you can see this is a tent style card with a cool base so it stands nicely.  Here's how it's done:

Cut an A4 card to 5 1/4" x 11 3/4".  On the long side score at 4 1/2", 9", 10 1/8" and 11 1/4".  You should have a 1/2" tab left at the end.

With the right side facing fold all the score lines making the 10 1/8" score line a valley fold and the remaining three mountain folds. Adhere the 1/2" tab to the back of the card to make the base.  I adhered it to the inside of the card rather than the outside, looks neater :)

There is plenty of room to write your greeting at the back of the card.  The envelope was of course made using the envelope punch board. We used measurements for the A-2 on the board.   Hope you like it and thank you for visiting x
