Rolling off of this inspiring activity, for this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge #126, I decided to use Zoo Babies to make a baby card. I guess I was inspired by the fabric we chose for the quilt which had animals on it! The sketch at Freshly made Sketches really fit the look I was trying to achieve so I was happy to play along!
Here is the card I designed. It's been a long while since I have had to make a baby card and with 3 people in my department at work pregnant, it was time to get a few of these cards ready anyway! Perfect timing!
I used the Square Lattice textured embossing folder to emboss the layer with the animals. I thought it would help give the card a "quilt" look. The baked brown sugar layer is embossed with Distressed Dots embossing folder (a sale-a-bration item).
Here is another version of the card, minus the embossing on the top layer but with a ribbon border.
Hope you enjoyed the cards!
