I sold my last baby card at the office and set out to make another baby-themed card this week. The new Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge (# 172) just happened to be the perfect colour combo, so I paired it with the Retro sketch #88 and created this card.
I was looking through my stamp collection to find something baby-themed and stumbled onto an old favorite called She's All That. I like the retro silhouette and decided to bring it out of retirement momentarily. The image was stamped in Baked Brown Sugar ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.
I created the frame for my image out of Soft Sky cardstock with the paper cutter. I found my initial frame to be a little thick, so I took out a little more inside and that it how I wound up with the smaller frame. Instead of throwing it away, I got the idea of using both frames at an angle to highlight my image. I embossed the bigger frame using the retired Finial Press embossing folder, and I used Dimensionals to adhere it to the card.
