One of my colleagues recently had a baby girl, so I took advantage of the occasion to create a super girly, all pink baby card to welcome her. The clean, classic layout for the design comes from September's first Viva la Verve sketch.
Verve's Little Star Plain Jane as my focal image, so I stamped it in rosy pink ink on a white circle, then layered it on a pair of pink mats for emphasis. It's hard to see in the photo, but the bottom layer has a pierced border that goes nicely with the dotted frame around the sentiment.
To go with the sentiment, I found a scrap of pink heart patterned paper. I double matted it, just like the sentiment, then added it to a pale pink card base. After adding a pink strip on top, covering the patterned panel's bottom edge, I added the sentiment on top. Originally I had a trio of pink sequins lined up next to the sentiment panel, but I didn't like how that looked, so I carefully took the pieces apart and wrapped a piece of ribbon around the panel instead. Much better! For a final girly touch, I tucked a strip of ruffled gingham ribbon beneath the panel that runs across the card.
