Vintage Baby Card

My latest make as GDT for Imagine That! Digis by Kris.  Be sure to visit the Imgaine That! Digis by Kris Creative Playground blog HERE for design team inspiration and links to current challenges, the FaceBook page, and the store.

I started with a digital composition background using

Winter Arabesque kit HERE (HERE links you to the item in the store)

Soft Florals digi paper pack HERE  (layered inside frame)

I layered on top a sentiment from Little Blessings HERE.

I printed the composition in the lower right corner on white cardstock so that I could trim, score and fold in order to make it into a card.
I also printed an extra butterfly, fussy cut, added pearls and placed on the card for dimension.

I printed 3 times on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla cardstock the outline bassinet from Little Blessings HERE.  I fussy cut parts of the bassinet, colored with Copic markers E50 Egg Shell and E31 Brick Beige, and then layered with lace and other trims, half pearls, cording bows, and an enameled letter "B" for baby.

You can see that I cut a special lace to conform to the bassinet outline which I laid over the skirt netting. I followed the ruffle with box pleated trim, softening with some E31. 

The stuffed rabbit got a good dousing of Copic E00 skin white as the marker was overfilled.  I touched up with the other two markers.  The bunny is placed in the bassinet with foam adhesive for a 3-D efffect.  

You can see on the close-up how I used the Copics to make a dotted crib sheet and striped bumper pad.

This close-up also shows off that digital frame.

Making use of my "wins" here:  I used my Craft-Dee BowZ maker on the beautiful silk ribbon to create a double bow.  I adorned it with Prima flowers and a beaded berry spray and a rolled paper flower from The Ribbon Girl.  

I finished with antique buttons from my collection.

Anything But Cute Challenge 16 Shabby Garden Mood Board
I took a stroll through the garden and as typical of the Victorian era, I brought the garden inside, decorating with flowers, a trellis background, butterflies, time-worn furniture, soft pastels, and feminine accessories. The top middle photo on the mood board inspired me the most with its romantic feel and colors.  I'm #19 x
