Clean and Simple have a new sketch this week. With my card, I decided to make a baby card using Whisper White cardstock and Pink Pirouette cardstock and ribbon. I started with a base card of Whisper White and then I trimmed a piece of Whisper White card stock to be a bit smaller than the front of the base card. I embossed this piece with a Swiss Dot embossing folder and adhered the embossed card to the front of the base card. I stamped the Giraffe from the Wild About You stampset using Pink Pirouette ink, on a piece of scrap Whisper White cardstock. I then punched the Giraffe out, using 1 3/8″ circle punch and punched a scrap piece of Pink Pirouette using the Scallop Circle punch. I adhered the 1 3/8″ circle to the Pink Pirouette scallop circle. I then used the small hole punch on the cropadile to punch a hole on either side of the giraffe’s neck so that I could tie a small piece of Pink Pirouette ribbon. I then adhered two strips of Pink Pirouette striped Grosgrain ribbon to the base card and then adhered the circles. I finished up with stamping the Small Wonder sentiment from the Whimsical Words stamp set, using Pink Pirouette and two pink button brads. Unfortunately the sentiment does not show up very clearly on the photo.
