Baby Girl Shaker for JAI

Welcome to the day before World Card Making Day!! Yes, it's that time of year again….crazy amounts of card making…no, its not Christmas (tho nearly!!) It's the day before WCMD so yes there are a few cards on the table. Unfortunately though,  I am not holding a special event tomorrow but am looking at getting together with some friends a little later in the week. So in the meantime I have a card to share with you that I have made for some old friends - who are celebrating being new grandparents :-) We often make new baby cards for parents but it is an exciting time for all the family of course -and  especially first time grandparents too :-)
And guess what the challenge this week is at Just Add Ink? Yes, that's right: "Just add Baby"…or in this case, just add baby shaker :-)

Oh another shaker card I hear you say…but yes - isn't this the ideal kind of baby card? And a good way of making it special I think :-) And Grandma IS a card making friend of mine after all….!!

The card base is some Pink Pirouette and then I stamped the pram image from the Something For Baby stamp in the centre of the white card and cut out with the co-ordinating framelits. I added some Window Sheet to the underside of the white and used a couple of the Shaker Frame circle adhesives to make the frame. I just snip one side of these little circles and remove the backing and they are so mouldable to any shape then. For the shaken goodies I used the Confetti Stars punch and punched out different coloured card stock including silver Glimmer and added some silver sequins for some added bling.
Next the letters were cut using framelits and Crystal Effects to the two Bbs and they were left overnight to dry.


And the cute little bunny teddy is coloured with Blendabilities markers too :-)

Card stock: Pink Pirouette,Whisper white, Strawberry Slush, Silver Glimmer
Inks: Pink Pirouette, Tuxedo Momento Black, Daffodil Delight Blendabilities, Strawberry Slush (marker)
Stamps: Something For Baby, Baby We've Grown
Accessories: Big Shot, Baby's Firsts Framelits, Large Polka Dots EF, Window Sheets, Shaker Frames, Confetti Stars Punch, Timeless type Alphabet Sizlits (Retired), Crystal Effects

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have time to go and check out all the great inspiration from the Team at Just Add Ink today and maybe you too might be the next to enter :-)

Happy stamping until next time,

Jan
