Congratulations to Kim and her family over at Perfectly Rustics on the birth of their daughter, Abbey! This week’s Perfectly Rustics Challenge (PR Design Challenge – No. 39 – Animals) is to make a card using an animal, so I thought I’d use this rocking horse image on a baby card as my entry. Welcome Abbey!! (http://perfectlyrustics.com/2015/01/12/prdc-no-39-animals/)
The rocking horse image was stamped and paper pieced. The 8 piece stamp set, which contains baby sentiments and images, is by Recollections. I am not sure of the name of the set since I don’t seem to have the original packaging anymore. The hanging hearts stamp is from the Gina K Designs “Love You” mini stamp set, and the greeting is from the “Bundle of Love” mini stamp set, also by Gina K Designs. I stamped the greeting and hearts twice with both Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Rose Bud inks. The black seemed too harsh, and the pink didn’t pop enough, so I thought I’d layer the two colors. The large background die is the largest of the 5×7 Detailed Scallops by Spellbinders (S6-004), and one of the Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles – large (S4-142) was used for the image panel. The patterned papers are from the DCWV 6×6 Girl Stack paper pack, and the solid pink is Gina K Bubblegum Pink which was sponged with a little bit of the rose bud ink. The corners of the card were rounded to follow the corners of the die.
Since I’ve never used this scolloped die or the stamps before (all new), I am also entering this card in the NBUS (never-before-used-schtuff) Challenge at djkardkreations.com. http://www.djkardkreations.com/2015/01/happy-new-year-2015-nbus-challenge-3.html
I haven’t made too many baby cards before, so it took me a little while to get this one to come together. I’m going to work on this type of card more since I think they are so cute!
Thanks for checking out my card project!

I love the detailed die cut for the BG and the little rocking horse is perfect for a baby card. Really nice to see the three hearts on the main image too.
