|Card for twins using the Baby Bundle stamp set and Nursery Nest DSP. The sentiment is from a retired set called By Ones and By Twos.|
|Inside of card...sentiments are again from the By Ones and By Twos set (retired)|
|Close up of the sentiment layering.|
Starting with a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of polka dot patterned DSP, I adhered a narrow strip of the rick-rack patterned paper along the left edge. I then tied a piece of pear pizzazz seam binding ribbon around the length of it, again along the left side. On a piece of 3" x 3" whisper white cardstock, I randomly stamped some of the images from the Baby Bundle stamp set in blushing bride and marina mist classic ink. I then sponged the edges in marina mist and layered it on a mat of blushing bride and another of marina mist cardstock. I adhered that to the DSP cardfront. I then cut a banner out of pear pizzazz, using my modern label punch to shape the ends. I scored each end twice, folding the scores in opposite directions so that it popped up. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of whisper white using pear pizzazz ink and then punched it out using my word window punch. I adhered that to the banner and then adhered the whole thing to the cardfront. I added two marina mist brads to either end of the banner and then adhered the entire cardfront to a pear pizzazz card base using Tombow liquid glue.
For the inside, I inked the "hurray for twins" sentiment using my pear pizzazz and marina mist markers on a scrap of whisper white cardstock. I punched it out using my decorative label punch. I layered that on marina mist and I then punched two scallop ovals from the polka dot patterned DSP and layered them behind the label (this is a trick I learned at convention...I likey!). I adhered it to the card using dimensionals. The rest is pretty straightforward...I'm sure you can figure it out.
Here's hoping the weekend brings some stamping time and some much-needed rain (we haven't had a drop in over a month!) as well as relief from this oppressive heat!
