hi there! here we are at day five of the countdown to the papertrey ink april release and i'm still having fun with baby face. i have three more clean and simple cards to share today, so let's get to it...
i just love these bottles! after making the bright rainbow card with them the other day, i really wanted to do one in more traditional baby pastels. don't they make a sweet mobile? add a little bling and scallops and we have another perfect card for someone who doesn't know if they're having a boy or girl!
now, this one, on the other hand, is definitely for the boys! you can hang the fish a few different ways from the mobile. i decided to hang them this way - like they're hooked! - with a fishing enthusiast in mind. if you hang them sideways, it could be like they're swimming, and they can face each other too, like in the kissing fish card the other day. i really wanted a simple mostly monochromatic look and i think i got it just right! a snippet of ribbon with bubbles and just a little bit of an accent color plus a tiny baby pin were both happy hoarder's finds!
and last, but definitely not least, is a sweet baby girl. i thought it would be nice to have a white blanket for a change, with just a bit of color on the edge. very much like a blanket i wrapped my girls in! i stamped the face only on the pink layer, then stamped both the face and line image of the blanket on a white scrap, colored them with copics, and cut them out closely. after layering the face over the one on pink (because i wanted the little curl!), i added the blanket below, followed by the banner, stamped with sweet baby dreams. a little bling on the blanket, a pink baby bottle, and a scalloped edge were the final details that pulled it all together. i think this is my favorite today!
