Raffie for Baby
I was torn between making a baby boy or a baby girl card. You may not notice it at first glance, but the teddy bear on the bed has a blue diaper on so in my mind it's a license for a baby boy card if you like. That being said, the baby girl card won out this time, but I think I'm going to make a baby boy card with a blue raffie and crimped panel so I have one of each in my card supply.
The light yellow panel was originally embossed with the hearts embossing folder, but it was a bit too over powering, so I ran it through the Swiss Dots embossing folder as it ties in with the spots on the giraffe. The double embossed panel gives it a pretty fun effect. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see the heart impression as well as the Swiss Dots on the panel.
The crimped panel was inspired by the ruffles on the pillow, though I think I could have done some ruffled ribbon on this panel instead (going to have to try that), and the border punch added a little girly "froo froo" to the main image panel. I outlined the raffie's eye and eyelashes with a fine line black felt pen so you can see it better, added some pink half pearls to the top of each antler, tied a yellow bow around the raffie's neck, and I was good to go. It's been a while since I've made a baby card so this was a lot of fun to do. Now I'm off to see if the boy version works LOL!
Thanks for popping in today. This is may last full week of the kids in school (they get out next Tuesday) so I'm hoping to get in a lot of stamping LOL! See you soon :)
