Easy Events Baby Card

This is the 4th image in the set of 8 from the "Easy Events" set. My challenge is to make a card with each image from this set.  Though I think I may pass on the Christmas image.  Not completely, but just for a couple of months.  I'm just not ready to make Christmas cards yet.  I have to get myself in gear for it!!  I'm sure you will understand. And who knows, by the time I get around to that last image it may be close enough for Christmas cards!!!  But right now it is not so I thought I would pick a different unstamped image from the set.

This little duck is just TOO adorable.  Under it the words are "for baby" but I taped them off and then stamped them up at the top.  I didn't get them straight either.  UGH!!!  I knew it the second the rubber hit the paper!!!  But I just tell myself it's a handmade card and I accept it as it is.

The cute decorative paper is form the "Nursery Nest" digital download.  I cut the piece I printed out into 1" strips.  I saw this done on a card a long time ago and have always liked it and have thought about it from time to time.  I wanted to make sure that I had time to cut the strips because I knew I wouldn't get them right the first time or the second time!  But what do they say?  The third time is a charm!!!  I taped them in place and then tied on a piece of pink satin ribbon.  Well, I didn't really tie it on.  I taped it on the back and then added the bow I tied separately.

I colored in the image with markers.  No special techniques there, just coloring straight from the marker.  I punched out a Pacific Point scalloped circle and set it in place under the duck image.  I set those two pieces in place on top of the card with Dimensionals.  Then the front panel was taped in place on top of a piece of Whisper White card stock.  

It was a pretty simple card to make and fun too!!  I think this duck is just too stinkin' cute!

Thank you SO much for visiting,
