Today’s card is for my daughter, son-in-law and new grandson.
I received my JustRite Stamper on Monday – woo-hoo! I kept trying to talk myself out of it, but I lost. Or, did I win? LOL!! Anyway, this is the first thing I stamped with it. (In “real life” it has his last name on it, but I took it off for the picture.) I stamped it with Baja Breeze on an off-white cardstock and cut it with a Marvy circle punch. I cut the scalloped circle with another Marvy punch. I stamped the dots on the scalloped circle with PaperTrey Ink’s Borders and Corners Circles, and I sponged both the edge of the plain and the scalloped circle with Baja Breeze. All of the background papers are from Die Cuts With a View Nana’s Nursery – Baby Boy. The vertical-striped piece is CB’d with a Dotted Swiss folder. The horizontal-striped piece is sponged with Baja Breeze and mounted on Baja Breeze cardstock. The top section is also mounted on Baja Breeze, and I added a thin strip of the stripes between the bottom and top sections. The rhino, hippo and giraffe are cut from the cardstock and mounted on various heights of dimensional squares and dots. The circles are on Pop Dots, also. The card is 4 3/4 inches square.
I wish it was a little more special for him, but it felt good to be card-making today. Maybe I’ll head back down to my stamping area and make something else while I’m at it!
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
