Made with love

Baby cards are in big demand lately so my aim today was to whip up a few to have on hand. I also had the details of 2 challenges on my sketch pad so I thought I would use both the colour combination from TGIF and the sketch from Just Add Ink to come up with a unisex baby card.

Now I have to admit to loving Bermuda Bay but not really loving Wisteria Wonder. I find that if I am having difficulty with a colour challenge I change the proportion of each colour and use a bit less of the one I like the least. So armed with the Made with Love stamp set and coordinating  Baby's First framelits I came up with this.

If you are a regular follower you'll know I am besotted with Kraft cardstock at the moment so it was an easy choice for the card base. A piece of Shine On DSP matted with Basic Black cardstock makes a great base for the 3 onesies in the challenge colours. Each onesie is raised on Stampin' Dimensionals.

I had stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock to form the horizontal strip in the sketch but it looked awkward and clumsy. After a coffee I had the idea to stamp one line of the sentiment in the Kraft stripe. I placed a sticky  note over the top stripe so that the first line of the sentiment was not stamped. Now what else can I use Kraft cardstock for???
