Instructions: To get started on this shaker style card, cut white cardstock to 8 x 6 1/2" size, score and fold at 4". Take the balloon die from HCD1-7299 Baby's Air Balloon Die and place onto the cardstock, leaving the left edge of die extended over the folded side of card. Send through die cutting machine and you have a shaped card base! Now stamp the HCPC-3914 Baby's Air Balloon Cling Stamp Set in Vibrant Fuchsia ink onto white cardstock. Stamp the word ‘welcome’ in the banner at the bottom of air balloon basket. Diecut the air balloon with the coordinating die. Use from the HCD1-7155 Circle Basics Large Die to diecut the 3rd largest circle from center of air balloon. Cut the largest circle die out of clear cardstock and attach behind the air balloon circle opening.
Stamp the word ‘Baby Girl’ in the Vibrant Fuchsia ink onto white cardstock and diecut with the coordinating die. Stamp the baby piglet, bunny, and fawn from HCPC-3916 Baby's Friends Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock in Jet Black ink and diecut with the coordinating dies. Stamp the small rose image 2x on white cardstock with a combination of Vibrant Fuchsia and Leaf Green ink and diecut with the coordinating die.
Use a combination of daubers and markers with blender to color the images. For the baby bunny, sponge lightly with the Sky Blue ink. Also use the Light Pink for a blush of color, plus Pale Green, Pale Pink and Light Gray markers. For the fawn, sponge with the Desert Sand. Use the Light Pink marker for a blush of color, plus Light Green and Cobalt Blue on the florals. For the piglet, use the Light Carmine, Light Pink and Light Green and Cobalt Blue on the florals. Trim off body of piglet, you will only need the piglet’s head. Sponge the small roses with Vibrant Fuchsia and Leaf Green inks. Use the Light Carmine marker on the details of the ‘Baby Girl’ letters.
Use the stylus from the Deluxe Flower shaping kit to shape the baby animals and tiny roses. Now attach the ‘Baby Girl’ letters onto the card base so that they will show through the circle opening of air balloon. Attach a small rose and piglet’s head as pictured. Use Dries Clear Glue to add a sparkle of glitter. Attach a layer of dimensional adhesive around the backside of air balloon circle, making sure it’s sealed completely to contain shaker elements. Carefully drop some pink prills onto the shaker area. Attach dimensional adhesive onto the rest of air balloon as well and layer onto shaped card base.
Attach the bunny and fawn onto the card as pictured. Use the Dries Clear glue along with Crystal glitter to add a touch of sparkle over the card as desired.
