Super-cute cards to celebrate new babies18th June 2018
It’s not long until issue 179 of SCP hits the shelves, and to celebrate we thought we’d share with you one more bonus card from issue 178 with you. Sarah Gray completed her first-ever Sketch Challenge inside issue 178 with a striking collection of cards for new babies using one sketch as a starting point. We loved her makes, and we couldn’t resist keeping this extra idea to post exclusively here for you…
Welcome to the world
white 13.5cm-square card blank
blue, yellow & pale grey cardstock
My Favorite Things Welcome Baby stamp set
black VersaFine inkpad
Squeezed Lemonade Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink
manual die-cutting machine
circle nesting dies
Memory Box Precious Mobile die
1 Die-cut a circle from white paper and use it as a stencil with the Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink to create a soft circle.
2 Cut the mobile die from grey, yellow and blue cardstock, use the pale grey mobile as the base and adhere coloured elements onto it.
3 Stamp the ‘WELCOME to the world’ sentiment directly in the top corner of the card front to finish.
It is simple to make your own stencil by die-cutting an aperture from white paper – using thin paper will help give a more crisp finish than inking through cardstock
