Precious Blessing

This is #6 and the last of my series featuring the Wrap It Up cartridge. This time I decided to go a little more elegant, since my last ones were more whimsical. Here it is:
The card is 4 1/4"x5 1/2." I used gold cardstock for the card base, then cut white cardstock 1/4" smaller and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder. I then wrapped it with a pale gold organza ribbon. I trimmed a piece of gold cardstock at 4"x3 3/8" and the crosshatched paper at 4"x 3 1/4." The baby buggy is cut at 3 1/4" from Wrap It Up. I cut a strip of white cardstock at 3 3/8"x1 3/4." I used an EK Success border punch, then stamped my sentiment on the strip. I used a Scrappy Moms Stamp, and stamped it in gold then heat embossed it. I added that to the card using pop-dots. I also added three gold brads to both sides of the buggy. I finished off the card with some baby blue Liquid Pearls on the wheels and trim of the buggy. All the paper is from Martha Stewart (except the plain white).
I also made this for the following challenges:
  • 365 Cards: "Day 118" - use three shades of a single color (I have three shades of gold with the ribbon, the papers and the brads)
  • Card Patterns: sketch 171


  1. How pretty! At first I thought the liquid pearls was ribbn. Looks great!--Pat N.
