The Stork

While blurfing the other day, I ran across this post at the Less Is More challenge blog. The theme was baby cards, and ... meh. But someone had asked me about baby cards, so I obliged. Check out the second card in that post -- I CASEd it:

 As usual, I changed it up a bit. I used a different embossing folder for the white panel, I used patterned paper as the layer for the oval, and I stamped a sentiment.

The cool part of making this was not only breaking out my QuicKutz dies, but figuring out how to add the score lines above and below the embossed panel. Turned out it was easy. The card base is white, so I held it up to the light and put a light pencil mark on the inside of the card to note the edges of the panel. I then scored lines next to those marks and erased the pencil marks.

I also made two other colors while I was at it:

I kinda like them, even if they ARE baby cards. :)  All papers, except for the card bases, were from The Heaplet.

I hope to tackle a few more challenges today, so I'll be back later to share.

Thanks for stopping by!
