Hi everyone! I was asked to make a baby girl card for a western themed shower and I was all too happy to oblige! I have made a western wedding card before and although I was going for the same feel, I wanted this baby card to be softer and more delicate!
The background was created using an embossing folder and a soft pink ink. I covered the indented side of the embossing folder, inserted my card stock and ran the whole thing through my machine. I added in a delicate doily border and topped it off with a soft bow cut from a faded pink bandana. To keep it a bit more western, I added in a few star metal charms and printed out the sentiment in western style fonts.
The inside sentiment is also done in the western Giddy-Up font and I layered this card stock over a solid embossed background. Some tiny pearls and a lone silver star were the final touches. Perfect for a little cow girl in the making!
Since I was playing around with embossing folders and ink, I thought I would try another baby card- this one with an ombre background. I chose a more whimsical embossing folder and then cut out a few adorable baby items from different pink card stock. Each one has a bit of glitter and they are layered over some soft pink twine and a doily. I double up the baby sentiment giving it a black edge and then tucked in a few sequins.
More of the ombre embossed background for the inside as well as a few more sequins. Plus, I had to add in this adorable baby sock with it's little bit of glitter!
Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!
