BEST DRESSED BABY

One type of card I seemed to always be short of, is baby cards, and to be honest, I don't have much in the way of Baby themed stamps and papers etc.  I set myself a challenge to make a simple baby card using the Jumbo Wheel stamp "Baby Tees", since it really is the only decent sized baby image I have.  But I didn't want a string of images.

So what did I do?  I paper pieced it instead!  I inked and stamped my wheel across a gender neutral DSP, actually, it is the same DSP in the background, called Nursery Nest.  Then I simply applied shadows to the Onsie with markers and cut out.  I adhered this piece to the front of my card with dimensionals to pop it up off the card base.  Then I inked my sentiment stamp from "Word Play" using markers to achieve the two toned colours.  I then decided to round just the top right hand corner of my card, for a little bit of interest on an otherwise clean and simple card.
