Moon Baby, Baby Card

I had loved this "Moon Baby" set since the first time I laid eyes on it. And it's going to be retiring.  That makes me sad, it was such a cute baby set.

I had found this card on a board that my demonstrator Terri has.  I thought this card would be fun to make.  The original card had a different doily.  It was one of those that were white on one side and vanilla on the other.  I just used the doilies that are in the current catalog. I also changed the color of the lamb. The original one had the body of the lamb colored in and it just looked off to me.  The bunny on the original was a bit more pink too.  So this is how I colored them in.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock.  I stamped the images (the come all on one block) using black Memento ink.  The piece of Whisper White they were stamped on measures 1-7/8" x 3".  I layered Daffodil Delight behind it.  That piece measured 2" x 3-1/8".  

I cut a doily in half and taped it to the bottom part of the image panel.  I cut 3 bumps of a doily and set it in place on the upper right of the image panel.  I taped those layers in place on the card front.  Then I stamped the "Twinkle, twinkle, little star..." words.  I added the star and colored it in with the Daffodil Delight marker.  The animals were colored in using Blends pens.  I still have some Blendabilities pens and I may have used them too.  I just didn't want to use ink and a blender pen.  I stamped the "Do you know how loved you are" words on the inside. I don't often add words to the inside but when the outside words end with "..." you kind of need to put something on the inside!!!

I didn't have any current Daffodil Delight ribbon, so I used some retired stuff.  I need to start using that more.  Those of you who CASE (Copy And Study Everything) my cards for swaps that require current items know what to use!!!  So I will be using a bit more retired ribbons on my cards in the near future. But I will suggest what can be used that is current, if that helps you out.  I just need to get rid of some of my stash without giving it all away or selling it for pennies on the dollar.  SO that's my story on the retired ribbon use!!! LOL

I'm looking forward to making a few more "Moon Baby" cards before the end of May.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
