Baby Shower Card by Chris

I love my Nestabilities Labels Four and have used 3 graduated sizes here to make this shower card. I cut four labels—2 from the largest die, skipped a size and did one each of the next two dies. All edges were inked with Tattered Rose Distress Inks.

To assemble the card base I scored the back piece straight across the top of the side parentheses. I then used my ATG gun to glue above the score line and glue the two pieces together and trimmed off the bottom of the card so it would stand as an easel. The yellow layer was glued down next and the green swiss dot layer was mounted with pop ups. I wrapped the bakers twine around the top and bottom.

To make the stork and baby I used New Arrival Cricut Cartridge and cut the baby at 2 inches. The face is one of Peachy Keen stamps. (I used Just Baby Face Assortment which I bet Kim can get for you if you want.) The stork was cut at 3 inches. To make this stork I cut 2 extra body pieces because I wanted to make the wings look as if they were flapping in flight. All three pieces went through my Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder. I didn’t want the neck and face to have the swirls so I left those parts hanging out as it went through my Big shot. I glued the first layer down. The next two layers I trimmed off the neck and head and glued down only the part closest to the neck. I inserted pop ups between the wings to raise them up and then layered the baby bundle over his beak. The top of the bundle is glued down, but the bottom is raised on another pop up. (Lots and lots of dimension in this card.)

To finish off the card I made a rosette using Tim Holtz Alterations Paper Rosette (which Kim had special ordered for me) and a Winter Twinkle Jewel on the outside and a sentiment on the inside.
