Guest Designer For Paper Players

I am pretty excited!!! I've been asked to be the guest designer for Paper Players for the month of July. This is my first time being a part of a design team and I feel so honoured. The other designers are so talented and I am loving learning from them.

For Paper Player's first challenge of the month, the theme is "Oh baby"! If you recall I did a onsie card not too long ago. Click here to view it. This card was so very sweet and I received a lot of comments on it but I decided I should do something different. I went with a bit of the same theme in making a card that had an irregular shape to it. A diaper card!

It took a bit of time drawing up the correct shape with the right dimensions to hold a true card inside but it took no time at all dressing it up. A little sponging on the edges with Pretty in Pink and then a 5/8" Satin Pretty in Pink ribbon and that part was done.

I kept the card simple so as to not draw the attention away from the diaper too much. Pink Pirouette on Whisper White on Pretty in Pink. I used the new Extra Large Scallop Circle Punch with the Scallop Circle Punch and a 1 3/8" Circle Punch. For the sentiment I stamped "hello baby" from Teeny Tiny Wishes and punched it out with the Word Window punch and layered it on the Modern Label Punch. Then I punched a 1/4" whole at each end and put 5/8" Satin Pretty in Pink ribbon through.
