Then Comes the Couple with a Baby Carriage

Happy Friday!!! I know everyone loves Fridays and is thinking bring on the weekend.

Did you guess right? I almost decided to trick you and do more wedding cards but then I thought, nah, that wouldn't be fair or make the saying work LOL!

So let's not keep you in suspense. I made 2 different types of baby cards. The first is an iris fold, I really love doing these! And I also did a castle fold card.

 The papers I used were by Recollections and The Paper Studio. The little dies to make the sentiment tags are by mft stamps and the pink buggy stamp here and the blue one a couple pics down is a cuttlebug die and embossing folder. The ribbons I got at the Dollar Tree, there's lots of great ribbon to be had there if you haven't checked it out lately.

Here's a close-up of the boy card. I used tin foil on the wheels and put a gold gem in the center for the hub. I thought about putting silver but I didn't think it would add enough to be worth it so I went with gold. I think it added some variety and there's yellow in the ribbon so it still matched.

I can't take credit for the saying. I read it somewhere so I typed it up and stuck in some elements I got from Far Far Hill.

These are my castle fold cards. The boy one is a traditional castle fold and the girl card is modified a bit. Both papers are The Paper Studio designs. The image of the baby comes from Digital Two for Tuesday. And both of the front sentiments you can find at Doddle Pantry. The border was cut using a punch by Recollections and the flowers are from Michael's and Jolee. I used some MS flocking on the blanket to give them a little more dimension and softness. My usual Prisma Watercolor pencils colored up the images.

I'm not sure where this sentiment came from but it looks like something Grands9creations might make. Let me know if it's yours please so I can credit you.

The sentiment in this card came from Cleah Valero.

So that's it for today! What comes after the baby?

Love ya,
