Little One

Hey there! Thank you so much for visiting for the Spellbinders Blog Frenzy Event! Today, I'm sharing additional information about the baby card I presented using the new Labels Fifteen (S4-291). Stacking labels is a great way to create a focal point on your projects to highlight other embellishments or stamps. Stacking labels can also be used a long to create a fun or elegant tag. I love mixing styles, so this card is a bit vintage/antique with a clean and graphic design.

Today is the last day for the event, so make sure you stop by for more sneak-a-peeks!

I'm in the process of working on a series of posts focusing on photography to share with you all. Look for more information early next week!

Instructions
  1. Die cut square from black diamond patterned paper using die #7 (largest die).
  2. Die cut scalloped border from polka dotted patterned paper.
  3. Trim scalloped die cuts to 3.5" long and adhere one strip behind black patterned paper.
  4. Pop the second strip off slightly below the first scalloped border.
  5. Add pearls.
  6. Die cut two labels from silver blank board, then sand/distress.
  7. Punch a hole and set eyelet in large label die cut. Add ribbon/button treatment.
  8. On smaller label die cut, stamp baby carriage.
  9. Stamp baby carriage on polka dotted patterned paper, cut out, then pop off small label die cut.
  10. Pop small label die cut off large label die cut.
  11. Add black rhinestones.
  12. Pop focal point off an A2 soft stone card front.
