Cut It Up Challenge #27 Labor Day


I am so excited to be posting my first project as a DT member at Cut It Up Challenges! The challenge for the next two weeks is Labor Day - Celebrating Pregnancy or New Baby. My card is very simple, but I think it turned out really cute. I used New Arrival for the cute baby girl outfit and the Swiss Dots embossing folder to give it some texture. I rounded my corners of my card and mat and used my Fiskars Sea Pearls corner punch for the patterned paper corners. I also ran my green mat through the Swiss Dots folder. I popped up the patterned paper and outfit with foam tape, as well as my sentiment that came from TPC Studio's Beautiful Baby Girl stamp set. The inside of my card has the same patterned paper as the front with a border created with Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop. My ribbon is from American Crafts and the sentiment is from the same TPC set. I think this would be such a cute baby announcement to send to family and friends. Hope you like and I do have a video showing how it all came together. Thanks so much for checking out my card, and be sure to check out the other DT's projects!  This challenge is sponsored by Too Cute by Jessica and a $20 gift certificate is up for grabs, so get your project linked up for your chance to win!!!

I will also be entering this into Craftin' Desert Divas Baby Challenge and HIMCR Anything Goes Challenge.
