Something for Baby with Balloon Celebration

My daughter and I spent most of the day at the Kutztown Folk Festival today.  There are lots of crafters, music, story telling, demonstrations of traditional ways to do things, food and a fabulous quilt display/sale.  We enjoyed our leisurely stroll through the festival, enjoying the sights and sounds and didn’t come home empty handed.  We found the sheep shearing accompanied by an educational talk quite interesting.  The history teacher who was performing by the craft barn — my daughter would love to have arranged for him to come to the local middle school.  He has composed a series of songs about the Revolutionary War period to help teach the history.  And our treat today was eggplant fries — delicious! We wish they would show up on restaurant menus.  In fact, we’re going to play with them at home and see if we can’t come up with an acceptable oven baked variety.

But, my creativity today meant making a baby card.

I used Something for Baby and Balloon Celebration for my card.

It starts with a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Mint Macaron cardstock base scored down the middle.

Then, I added a 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock layer.

An In Color Doily in Mint Macaron has been adhered to the Very Vanilla layer.

Then, taking another piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, I stamped three balloons from Balloon Celebration in Mint Macaron.

The balloons were cut with the Balloon Bouquet punch.

Next, I inked the pram from Something for Baby in Mint Macaron and stamped on Very Vanilla.  Then it was cut out using the Baby’s First Framelits.

After adhering the bottom two balloons to the Very Vanilla layer, I held the baby carriage in place while stamping the balloon strings – also in Mint Macaron.  I wanted the strings to slightly overlap the handle so that it might appear that the balloons were tied to it.  Once the third balloon was placed with a Dimensional, I stamped the bow from Balloon Celebration in Mint Macaron.  Then, I used the Mint Macaron Stampin’ Write Marker to draw in balloon strings below the bow.

Using Dimensionals the carriage was attached over the In Color Doily.  And the finishing touch was Basic Pearls on the axles and along the stroller’s folding top.
