Good morning and Happy July 4th to my American friends! Debbie, from Ruby's Rainbow, has a new challenge for this fortnight...emboss it! Heat embossing, dry embossing...you choose....
I have 2 co-workers who are going to have babies very soon and I really wanted to make a baby card, so I combined this challege with some others. One of the girls is having her first baby and it will be the third for the other. It's been fun to watch them grow along the way...not so sure they would agree with the "growing" part! LOL They both look terrific though!
I used some DP from Graphic 45 for my card, along with some ribbons, buttons, and Swarovski crystals. For the embossing portion, I embossed the butterfly panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dot folder. I have to note that the peach button looks really bright in the photo...in real life, it is soft and pretty. I always wonder why the colors sometimes change when photographed?
Ink: SU! Marina Mist
Paper: PTI Fine Linen, SU! Marina Mist, Graphic 45 DP
Embellies: PTI Blueberry Sky Grosgrain and Fine Linen Satin Ribbons, PTI Buttons, Swarovski Flatback Crystals
