Hello crafters!  It's time for a baby card!  I started this one by cutting the Noah's Ark out of taupe card.  I used petrol blue card for the roof.  I added the ark to a piece of card that I sponged Tumbled Glass distress ink on.  I used the Double Stitched Squares to make a white on white multi frame and added mounting foam to the back.  I embossed a piece of white card with the Dotty Waves 3D embossing folder.  I cut along the waves to use a small portion of it and added it to the bottom of the frame so it looked like waves against the ark then added the frame to my backing card.   I used a small bit of Stellar Ice Luna Paste on my finger across the top of the embossed waves.   I cut the bunting out of white and paper pieced the letters back in cut out of blue card.  I cut four of the slightly larger bunting out of Bluebell card and glued them on top and then added them in a swag across the ark's roof.  I cut the animals out of various pastel colours then added them to the ark.  I used both the Farm Animals and the Zoo Animal sets as well as the tiger and giraffe from previous baby sets.  I cut the dove and sprig and glued them in the upper corner and used the Congratulations sentiment cut out of petrol blue and black as a shadow.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 3/4"  x  7 3/4" in size.  All for now.

Hi Sue, a gorgeous baby card and I love the waves created from an embossing folder. I totally agree with others that it would look perfect in a box frame on the nursery wall.


Lisbeth said...

Hi Sue. Love this card. As I have said before, I love all those animal dies probably because of the simple shapes and they are so cute. Great idea for making the waves for the ark to float on.
