Retro Fresh Sweet Baby Card

by Joanne James26. January 2015 09:00

Today its Monday and I have a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge; I am also linking up with the Friday Mashup, where the challenge is to create a baby card, a card in brown aqua and tangerine - or as in my case, a mashup of both:


I decided that the 'any shape' allowed in the sketch was a great opportunity for me to use probably the only stamp that has never been inked up in my 'Something for Baby' stamp set - the pram. Here is my card:


I chose to use some retired 'Retro Fresh' DSP for my card, as it featured the mashup colours. Once I'd decided on my layers, this card came together surprisingly quickly, even leaving time to stamp the inside and decorate the envelope. I've not used this pram stamp previously as it's quite large - this type of sketch layout is just perfect for it though. I finished my pram wheels with a couple of candy dots for added interest and done! 

Back tomorrow with another project; until then, happy stampin'!

Adorable!  Love the dsp you used.  It can be a challenge, but this is perfect!

Thanks Wendie - this colour scheme wouldn't have been my 'go to' choice for a baby card, but I really like it!

Thanks Narelle - very true, it's always handy to have 'unisex' baby cards in the standby pile Smile
