Georgie Hush Little Baby
When I viewed the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #127 this morning, my immediate thought was to use the Elephant PaperPak "Georgie" and a sentiment of Tons of Fun. Well it didn't turn out anything like I had planned in my head because when I looked at the the Complements for this paper I fell in love with them and decided to make a fairly clean and simple card.
After I cut the papers to match the sketch, I added the two elephants and the "Hush, Little Baby" using 3D Thin Tape to raise them from the banners. I used my Stitch Guide and pieced holes in my card and then hand-stitched with turquoise thread. It still needed something, so I cut out some of the centers of the circles from the paper and adhered them with 3D Thin Foam Tape so they popped from the design paper. Using the cricut I cut out the Artiste label and stamped the sentiment. The soft colors made it a perfect Congratulations Baby Card.
I spent more time on the initial thought process of what I thought my original plan was, then I did on making this card, and it's only noon here in Arizona (MT). Lucky day, I'll have time for another card.
