Today I have a sweet baby card to share with you made using the Amazing Paper Grace My Sweet Friend Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken from the The Right Words Collection. I have been challenged to do a one colour ombre ink blend this week by Becca Feeken and here is my first attempt at an ombre effect.
Today’s projects were used with dies provided by Amazing Paper Grace.
My Projects for Today
For my project today I have made a 5″ x 7″ card using the Amazing Paper Grace My Sweet Friend Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken. I have kept to a simple colour combination of blue, white and yellow with a touch of silver for a very special baby card. One of my favourite Amazing Paper Grace dies is the Amazing Paper Grace A2 Radiant Navette Etched Dies from the Classically Becca Collection by Becca Feeken and I have used this die set to create a pretty base for the sentiment and flowers.
To finish my baby card I have trimmed the stork and bundle from the Amazing Paper Grace 3D Vignette Layered Bundle of Joy Etched Dies by Becca Feeken set in white cardstock and coloured this with ink and adhered to the stork to the top right and the little bundle to the bottom left of the card.
For the large ‘sweet’ sentiment I have inked a piece of blue cardstock with two different colour blue inks and then die cut the sentiment out. I have backed the blue sentiment with a piece of white cardstock slightly offsetting the sentiment. The sentiment looks like it is floating over the background dies as I have used foam strips to adhere the sentiment to the front of the card. I have repeated the same process for the ‘baby boy’ sentiment.
I have die cut the two leafy dies from the Amazing Paper Grace My Sweet Friend Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken out of white cardstock and placed them each end of the card to create more texture to the card over the embossed background.
I have kept the flowers from the Amazing Paper Grace My Sweet Friend Etched Dies from the Right Words Collection by Becca Feeken very simple so as not to distract from the sentiment dies.
I have used two different blue inks on white cardstock to create the ombre effect in the base of the medallion die.
To finish I have added some pearls in the centre of the flowers and on the background decorative dies.
