I am attending a baby shower for a friend next weekend and needed a card. I also just bought the Puffy Cloud Borders and wanted to play with them. My friend is expecting her third child and first girl, so I went all out girly!
Size: Horizontal top fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started with a whole sheet of water color paper. I used half of it to make the card base, and the other half for the cloud borders and fairies. I die cut all of the borders first. Then, I played with the layout. Once I had decided on the placement, I ink blended some Distress Inks on the top edges of the cloud borders. I stamped some stars all over the clouds with the same distress inks. I used second generation stamping to achieve a softer color. Then, I adhered the cloud layers to the card base.
Using the scraps from the water color paper, I stamped and heat embossed the fairies. I used silver embossing powder. I used the same ink color for the fairies’ dresses that I used on the cloud borders. Once the fairies were dry, I fussy cut them out.
For the sentiment, I found some dotted velum in my scrap bin. I silver embossed the sentiment and then used a banner die cut to cut them out. I folded the welcome banner to give it some dimension. I used glue dots behind the letters on the banners to adhere it to the cloud layers. Lastly, I adhered the fairies with dimensional glue dots.
