Lil' Princess

Howdy! I'm sure you're thinking, "Wow, TWO posts in ONE day?!" I know ... it must be some kind of record!

Clearly Whitney and I are on a roll today with baby cards. Once you get in the groove, it's hard to make it stop. (And now you know how couples end up with two kiddos close together. *snicker*) LOL! In all seriousness, we're working on the latest line due up for release called Special Delivery. This is the second card in that line - Lil' Princess.

This design came together pretty quickly, particularly when we used a sketch and color challenge as sources of inspiration. (Have you noticed that's been a pattern as of late? We've figured out why all of the big-name designers use challenges so often. Takes SOME of the brain work out of coming up with cute, new stuff!) Once again, we turned to Moxie Fab for our color palette, using the Metallic Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week, and the sketch is based on TCP Tuesday Sketch 19.

To draw in the metallic elements, we used a combination of shimmery paper (white background), iridescent gold Glimmer Mist (lightly misted over the pinkini strip), jewels, and ribbon. In person, this card is SUPER shimmery.

What we like most about this card is its versatility. While we originally designed it with our Special Delivery set in mind, it can easily be adapted for many other occasions with a simple change of the inside sentiment.

I hope you've enjoyed our second post for today. We're enjoying a super productive day in the craft room!
