MFT New Baby Card

Hi everyone! Unicorn stamp sets can be perfect to create new baby cards. For this card I wanted to go for a clean and simple look with a soft pink colors. This design is a bit different from the cards I usually make, but I’m really pleased with the result. If you don’t have this stamp set, it is also really easy to change it up with a different one. For instance you could use the new Caticorn stamp set, a cute dragon, or even carousel horses!

First I stamped the unicorn from the Magical Unicorns set on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with my copic markers: RV000, RV11, RV14, C0, C1. After coloring, I used the coordinating die to cut out the unicorn. For the background, I wanted to create a soft pink gradient. To get the soft look, I used a blending brush from Nellie’s Choice which makes it really easy to apply ink lightly, especially in combination with Sheena Douglas paper. For the colors, I chose Distress Oxide Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar.

As it is a new baby card, I thought it would be cute to create a banner with flags which says ‘meisje’ (girl). For the letters I used the Caption Alphabet dies from MFT. For the flags, I used the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die from Lawn Fawn. This die set has little flags in them, really handy! To get a coherent look, I used Worn Lipstick Oxide Ink to color the flags. After assembling the flags, I put the twine in between and adhered it shut with scor tape.

To create a frame around the scene, I die cut a scalloped border from white cardstock from Sheena. For the sentiment, I prepped the ink blended background with an anti-static powder tool, and stamped the sentiment from Carlijn Design with VersaMark ink. Then I coated it in white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat gun.

I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
