Here's my entry for this challenge. This card is for a friend who is having her third child but her first baby girl next month. It includes 4 Cricut cuts using the Cricut Imagine machine and the letter "b" is replaced with a glittery rattle.
I wanted to experiement with the sillhouette style that I have been seeing on blogs and Pinterest lately. I chose the baby image (cut at 2.5") and the word baby (cut at 1.5") from the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year. The rattle was cut at 1.7" from Craft 'n Craftin pink glitter cardstock and Cricut Cartridge New Arrival. The scallop oval (cut at 4.5") was a stock image in the Cricut Imagine machine. Sweet Little is a portion of a stamp by Stampin' Up from the Something sweet set. I did not ink the word baby that is the last part of the stamp. I punched it out with the Stampin' Up word window punch.
The inside of the card is finished with Bazzill pink cardstock punched with Martha Stewart scallop three dot. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up Full of Life stamp set. I will write a message to the mom-to-be with an at you Spica glitter pen by Copics.
