As you know I write for ItsyBitsy and a few days ago I wrote a post about a shop card with baby embellishments. I made another one to demonstrate how I used their rotary cutter and this is the final result of that project. I am still editing the video and will link it shortly. As you can see, it's the same layout but the embellishments and accents are markedly different.
My color scheme was inspired by the Play Date Cafe challenge that I saw over at Juhi's blog - the color scheme was Teal, Gold, Mint and Lavender. It's a real interesting combination so I took it as a challenge and started with teal and gold. By the end, no matter how much I tried to add lavender and mint, it just didn't sing so regretfully I didn't overcome the challenge. That said, I am mighty pleased with what finally emerged.
The flowers are a combination of roses created from the ItsyBitsy Swirly Rose Die and some readymade paper flowers again from ItsyBitsy. The cake was tougher - this is the 3rd cake I made for this card. The first 2 just didn't fit. Also a word about the sentiment, it's been written by my super awesome cameo. I replaced the blade with a pen holder and used a blue gel pen to write the text. Isn't that FANTABULOUS!!!!
