Baby elephants with balloons make the perfect baby card!!

I love this image from Pixabay for baby cards!!  I started with a blue textured card front and added a soft blue floral background.  I added a length of white ribbon securing the ends to the inside of the card.  The image was colour printed, trimmed and layered onto yellow cardstock before being mounted to my card front using 3D foam tape.  I tied a short piece of ribbon using one knot to the one on the front to simulate a bow.  The greeting is stamped (SU) in blue.  I embellished with a yellow marker and then added some clear glitter using a gel pen.  I added a few dots of glitter to the star in the scallops as well.  I used a mask to sponge the center area to coordinate.  I mounted the greeting using a piece of double side tape on one edge and 3D foam tape on the right hand side so it would work with the image. 


Paste paper background, ribbon and a die cut focal element that features two little mice

The focal element on this card features two little mice with a piece of birthday cake which was die cut from the front of a used card.  They are pretty cute!!  I die cut an opening in the green paste paper background (made by me a while back), added a length of gray ribbon from the opening to the right hand edge securing the ends on the back  and mounted a piece of embossed yellow cardstock in behind the opening.  I mounted my little mouse die cut into the opening which highlights it perfectly!!  I tied a short piece of the same ribbon to the one on the front with one knot to simulate a bow.  I found a coordinating greeting in my stash, sponged the edges and mounted it below the ribbon on the right hand side.    Love how the paste paper looks like grass and you can see this little scene in the middle of it!!            Therese
