I liked making the baby carriage the other day, and to make something for the little boys, I did a sailboat version. I pulled out my old, retired DSP, and searched for something blue. I love blue, and I guess I do use it often, because this was all that I could find.
|Oops, and old sketch|
Here's the details. I layered up the DSP up, down, this way and that. Then I embossed with the dots for the center layer.
The sailboat I used a 2 1/2" circle cut in half. I used a variety of triangles to form the sails and flag.
For the pink, I used the 2 1/2" scalloped circle punch cut for the buggy, and added a little scalloped trim. I punched 1" and 3/4" circles for the wheels. I added a button trim to each card, and stamped a greeting from Sweet Essentials stamp set.
These cards were fun to make, kind of like a quilt, matching and layering to get just the right effect. It was kind of like digging in the fabric stash to make something. I love getting back to some of the retired paper to find some old favorites, too. These are truly "retro" cards.
Hope you enjoyed my cards, and will stop back again soon. No more baby cards this week. I have a bridal shower to go to on Sunday, and better start thinking about a card for that :)
