Unconventional Baby Colors-CCMC#165
Here's a color combo from Create with Connie & Mary that sings Halloween to me however, I chose to use the colors for an unconventional baby card!
Do you think I have enough "dots" on this card? I absolutely had to buy this stamp set, just loved the way the baby "ellie" is hanging on to his momma and the itty-bitty heart at the end of momma's trunk, so cute!
Here's my card using the three challenge colors for both inks and paper.
I stamped the razzelberry cs with the same ink using polka-dots for the background and also to coordinate with the pumpkin pie dotted frame which I used the ticket corner punch on the top corners. I stamped the "ellie's" in razzelberry ink, then cut out two little circles from the pattern paper, cut off approx. 1/3" of the circle to represent their ears, glued only the end to allow the ears to flap!
I didn't have a circle punch smaller than the 1/2", which I needed for the baby "ellie" ear, so I used the eyes from the Owl Builder stamp which I thought was the perfect size, and it was!
I colored three white pearls using the razzelberry marker pen and added to the top of the framed piece as I thought it looked to plain (can you image..with all those dots...too plain)!
I chose to use the reverse side of the razzelberry polka-dot ribbon to calm down the dots a bit, taped it to the frame and separately hand tied a knot, since I never seem to be able to combine both with one piece of ribbon.
Hope you enjoy looking at my card as much as I enjoyed creating it, thanks for lookin'!
