Special Delivery Baby Card

The stamp set I am showing you today is one the first stamp sets I ordered from Stampin Up when the new catty came out. I just love the doodle images in this In The City stamp set from Stampin' Up's NEW 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. It is one of the HOST only stamp sets and not only does it have several different 2-step images to create some fun city scapes, but it has several different greeting stamps that make it a super versatile stamp set! Today's card is a just a sample of how you can use the images and greetings to create this hand stamped baby card.

How To Make This Hand Stamped Baby Card:

I started this card with a base of the NEW Powder Pink cardstock.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the scene using the various stamps from the In The City stamp set keeping the scene tight to fit into the oval that will be cut later. The main images were stamped in Basic Black ink and then I filled in the colors with the matching 2-step stamp in Old Olive ink, Powder Pink ink and Berry Burst ink. The fireworks were stamped with Powder Pink ink.

The scene was then die cut with the larger oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits and the mat oval was die cut using the next size oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits. Both pieces were adhered together with SNAIL Adhesive.

The greeting from the In The City stamp set was curved onto the acrylic block (I used the punch to guide the curve) and then stamped with Basic Black ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and then punched out using the Duet Banner Punch. The mat piece was punched with the same punch out of Powder Pink cardstock. Again both pieces were adhered together using SNAIL Adhesive.

Now to put the card together:

Lay a Delicate White Doily on the card front and once you are happy with it's position, adhere it using SNAIL. Add a layer of the NEW Berry Burst 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon with one end snipped in a ribbon cut.

Add the oval layers on top using SNAIL Adhesive and then add the greeting using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Add some Clear Clear Faceted Gems to finish off the card.
