Baby Wobble-Head Card
The papers on this baby card coordinate with the Baby Crib Box Card project I posted yesterday. (I will be sending both of them together.)
The baby image was Googled and “traced” with my Silhouette software. The baby’s head is mounted on a spring, and it wobbles when the card moves. (Yes, the blurry head is supposed to show movement! lol)
The spring is called an “Action Wobble Spring” and is a plastic spring with adhesive on both sides so it sticks to your card project and to the element you want to wobble.
I used the following paper and card stock for this project: Core’dinations April Lovely, Colorbok Heidi Grace Designs bgirl buggy (double-sided), Core’dinations light pink plaid, Gina K bubblegum, ivory and white. I inked all the edges and stamped the greeting with Gina K bubblegum ink. The greeting is from the Gina K Designs “Bundle of Love” stamp set. The baby’s hair is made with a few strands of yarn and a ribbon, and I added a few pink pearls to finish it off.
Inspiration for this card came from two places. First, I used the same baby (as a boy) with the wobble spring on a card I made a bit ago. Here is the card that I had previously posted in my StampTV gallery (which you can see HERE).
Secondly, I used a sketch from the StampTV Sketch Book which is under the “Freebies” section on the StampTV Site (HERE – scroll down; the sketch book is a little below the photo of the swimmer). This is a fantastic resource for layout ideas when you are stuck! You may need to be a member of StampTV to view this Sketch Book, but membership is free. Here is the sketch I used as a starting point for my card project:
Thanks for checking out my card project!
