Count On Me Baby Card for the Alphabet Challenge

Count On Me Baby Card by Secrets To Stamping!

Hi, Stampers!

The Alphabet Challenge starts a new theme today – “P is for Precious.” We will open that up to your interpretation, so let’s see what your precious cards look like. When I saw the theme, the only thing that came to my mind was a baby card. So, I decided to ink up a new-to-me stamp set that I just purchased called Count On Me. All of the images are adorable but this bear just melted my heart. My stampin’ friend Diane had posted a card of him wearing clothes and I just had to CASE her idea. I really like how this card turned out, even though it’s pretty CAS for me.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Alphabet Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My Secrets!

  • Firstly, this card is a standard A2 card of thick white cardstock (5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″).
  • After that, I dry embossed white cardstock with the Brick & Mortar embossing folder then layered it onto Fresh Freesia cardstock.

And now, the fun part!

  • Then it was time to stamp that little bear, so I stamped him onto the regular white cardstock. Once that was done, I colored him lightly with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. (SECRET: the thick white cardstock doesn’t like the Stampin’ Blends as much as the regular white cardstock and could bleed past the lines. Take my word on this! LOL)
  • After that, I stamped him again onto the Tea Boutique designer paper and pencilled in the onesie first before tracing over it in black ink once I was satisfied. Then, I fussy cut and glued it into place.
  • Next, I cut the image out with the circle die from Stylish Shapes (which I never put away because I use it so much).
  • Before popping it up onto the card, I cut the designer paper with the Stitched Rectangle die. Then, I colored the white 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with Fresh Freesia Stampin’ Blends, and tied it around the designer paper into a bow. After that, I glued the entire panel onto the card.
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Charming Sentiments and cropped it out with the coordinating die.
  • INSIDE: I wanted to use another of the cute images from the set inside so I stamped the little penguin. Then, I colored it with Stampin’ Blends and layered it onto Fresh Freesia cardstock.

I’m sharing my card with these challenges:
