Bloggers Challenge - Celebration


I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday spent with family and friends! For this weeks Bloggers Challenge - we are to create anything using the theme Celebration. Celebration encompasses a wide variety of images - so I can't wait to see what the other players decided to create this week.

I've chosen to create a Baby card, not your typical baby card, I was going for more of the antique look, to match the beautiful Baby Buggy from I Brake for Stamps. I used the Burnt Edges Technique on Vanilla Card stock, then stamped my Antique Buggy (IBFS), and sentiment from Stampin' Up! in Black Archival Ink. I layered this on my Black panel. I stamped the Canvas Background (ISC) on the other Burnt Edges panel in Chocolate Chip Ink, layering onto my Black Panel. I layered these images onto my Chocolate and Black panels, then onto my Kraft base card. I used my Sizzix Button Die-Cut for the button, threaded through my linen thread then attached to my card as shown.

Details:
Stamps - Antique Buggy, I Brake for Stamps; Canvas Background - Innovative Stamp Creations, Sentiment - SU Holidays and Wishes
Ink - Black Archival, Ranger Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy, Straw
Card Stock - Chocolate Chip, Black, Vanilla, Kraft
