Cherish the Moments Friday Mashup 74!

I’m a little late this week. This should have been posted Friday, but I was too busy enjoying a nice long weekend off work. I actually got to spend some time cleaning out and organizing my craft room Saturday. I still have a long way to go before I’m totally done, but its progress! Anyway…Here is the card I made for the Friday Mashup challenge from last Friday.

  • Stamps: Baby Prints
  • Card Stock: Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso, Whisper White
  • Ink: Early Espresso, Baja Breeze
  • Accessories: Fancy Fan embossing folder, Baja Breeze pleated ribbon (retired), SNAIL Adhesive

Since part of the challenge was to use pleats I pulled out some of my Baja Breeze pleated ribbon that retired earlier this year. It was perfect for this challenge! I started off by cutting a piece of Lucky Limeade card stock 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” and scored it at 4-1/4”. Next I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”. I cut a piece of Lucky Limeade card stock 2-1/4” x 3-1/2” and ran it through the Big Shot in the Fancy Fan embossing folder. I adhered this onto the bottom of the Whisper White card stock.

Then I stamped the hands from Baby Prints onto the top of the Whisper White card stock in Baja Breeze ink. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso ink right on top of the hand prints. I adhered this layer onto a 3-3/4” x 5” piece of Early Espresso card stock.  I used a little bit of SNAIL Adhesive to adhere the pleated ribbon onto the panel and adhered this layer onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Super quick and easy. I was kind of in a hurry when I created this card, but I still really like how it turned out. Simple and pretty.

What do you think? 


  1. Love those baby print hands. Those colors you've used make your card so elegant. Great card!
    Hugs ;)

  2. Amanda...I love this card. It is so sweet. But what colors would you use if it was a baby girl card?
