Before I tell you about today's card I want to say Thank You very much for all of the wonderful comments and personal emails about the Appletini ensemble!! I love hearing from you and reading all the comments & emails!! Today's card is a baby girl card that I made awhile back for my mom to give to one of her co-workers. I used the Baby Girl stamp set and Pastel Paper Designs from Crafty Secrets. I cut and embossed two circle die cuts using the Wizard and Classic Circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders and Cryogen White CS. I stamped the image twice and colored them using Copic markers. On one image I only colored in the outer circle and leaves and then cut out the center of the image using a craft knife. I added the sentiment and then layered the two pieces using pop dots. Then I cut and embossed two Petite Scallop Circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders to use for a mat and added some Liquid Pearls from Ranger to the scalloped edge. I used Fabri-Tac adhesive from Beacon to apply the lace trim and then added the pink ribbon. After adding the lace trim I stamped a rose in between the scallops on the lace and colored with Copic markers. I assembled the card as shown and then stamped the baby girl sentiment and added more liquid pearls in the corners, a few buttons and a little bit of stickles for some sparkle.
