Bib Rocker Card
Today I want to show a lovely shaped card I made a few days ago when one of the class ladies became a nana again...we had all waited for the arrival of baby Ben and he finally joined the family last weekend
I loved the card with it being the bib shaped – unusual too – although not much to do it did gave way to plenty of embellishing as you will see in the photographs
The sheet is from www.craftsuprint.com and was designed by
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
Pale blue A4 card
Crafters Companion Stick & Stay
Pointed blue AB flat back gems
Amble flat AB gems
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
Before I printed off the sheet I added the simple message to the back of the bib..
I trimmed the printed sheet then sprayed the back with the stick and stay – the sheet was then pressed securely onto the pale blue card.
I scored well on the fold line then started to cut the sheet out – I found it easier cutting one piece at a time rather than both pieces together
Once it was all cut out – I really struggle cutting scallops but think I did ok on this card – I folded in half to check it all lined up and just trimmed off any little stray strands
There was just the one piece of decoupage to be added so I used small sticky pads
On to embellishing the bib – I love this part of any card..those finishing touches that make the card...
I added a few amber AB gems to the flowers above the booties and then used turquoise stickles to added shine and colour to the booties themselves
The beautiful blue pointed AB gems were stuck to each of the scallops – with a dot of stickles either side of it.
When it was all dry I turned the card round and started on the back – I used the turquoise Stickles – the printed design was a larger open circle and a small circle either side of it on all the scallops..
The card looked so pretty and was possibly one of the easiest cards I had made for a long time...
And it could turn out to be one I use time and again!!!
Thank you for looking
