Out of the Box Baby Cards

I've needed a few baby cards over the last few months. I wanted to make some that were not as common. I like traditional, too, but not this time!

The first card uses the paper tole technique. This technique creates layers of dimension as seen on the lion. The cameo mane is popped up with dimensionals. The the face is popped up again on more dimensionals. The elephant's ear and one of the leaves are also popped up once. I can't remember what set the leaves came from. Maybe Watercolor Minis?

Stamps: Wild About You, Mini Mates
Paper: white, cameo coral, apricot appeal DSP, apricot appeal, close to cocoa
Ink: same + mellow moss
Accessories: ribbon, circle & square punches, cameo marker, dimensionals
Techniques: paper tole

The second card uses an adorable image from Penny Black called Rainin' Daisies. I thought the "shower of flowers" with the cute teddy made a great baby shower card.

Stamps: Rainin' Daisies - Penny Black, sentiment - SU Mini Mates
Paper: certainly celery, bashful blue DSP, Cutie Pie DP, white
Ink: black, bashful blue, celery
Accessories: Copic markers, ribbon, oval punch

All supplies from Stampin' Up unless noted differently.
