Baby Love Card

 Pinque Peacock

      Happy Monday fellow crafters! Pinquette Mary here to show you some Love. That's right, this month the Design Team is showcasing Pinque Peacock products with the theme being Love. To me, love can be that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you are with someone special, smell the most delightful meal cooking or even remember a moment in time that left you feeling happy all over. For my project I decide to dress up some baby cards I had done a while ago using great products to embellish my cards and to kick them up a notch, lol. We have a few really special people who are expecting babies and they are choosing not to find out what they are having so I hope I have enough cards, lol. Let's take a look at them.
     I used the Cricut cartridge Victorian Romance for this beautiful clown silhouette. I made this a while ago so I believe the size is 5.5".  It amazes me how I have grown creatively. I first made this card for a Design Team i was on and this is what I submitted. The theme may have been to use a silhouette however, today it looked so unfinished to me.

 This is the before.

      Here is the after:



     This baby boy card has the scrumptious 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon and a simply wonderful fabric 3/4"covered button in green and white from Pinque Peacock Shop. It adds so much dimension to this card and really looks like a bouncing ball! I also added some Baby Blue stickles to the solid side of the clown costume to add a little bling and also to tie in the background color. It seemed to be a good choice because it also brings out the polka dots in the button. Love when that happens! I also added some rhinestones to a scalloped border strip I had in my stash. I am so pleased with the "dressed up" version.

This is the before girl card:
    

And here is the after:
     For the girl card I added liquid pearls to her costume and a different type of 3/4" fabric button for her "ball". I also had a strip of embossed hearts left over from another project so I added this to the scalloped edging as well. I think it gives it a more polished looking card.
     Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will stop by the Pinque Peacock Shop HERE and grab some of these wonderful products and try them on your next project. Have a wonderful week and as always, stay safe.
