Pink Blog Hop!
Thanks for hopping along to my blog! This blog hop is in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness month. My card for the Pink Blog Hop was inspired by a cupcake topper order I received for a Baby Shower. The request was for pink, gold and forest creatures. I thought the pink and gold were the perfect fit for today's Pink Blog Hop! Babies and boobs....what goes together better! As a mom of a two year old who is still breastfeeding, Breast Cancer awareness is a big deal. My grandmother had Breast Cancer and I know other women for whom this has been a battle as well. How cool is it that we are able to shed light on this important issue through crafting!
My Pink Blog Hop card features the Bundle of Love Designer Series Paper, the Foxy Friends and Special Celebrations stamp sets and the Woodland Embossing folder. I must say that I had not ordered this Designer Series Paper before I received the special request and now that I have it I love it! The gold foil inlay is beautiful!
To make this card I heat embossed the fox using gold embossing powder on Very Vanilla thick cardstock then watercoloured using Blushing Bride ink and an aqua-painter and fussy cut it out using paper snips.. It is popped up using stampin' dimensionals.
The Bundle of Love DSP is die-cut using Stampin' Up!'s Stitched Shape Framelits
The Welcome Baby sentiment is cut out using the Classic Label punch and affixed with mini stampin' demensionals
For additional gold accents I added the 1/8" gold ribbon and the gold foil snowflakes. The snowflakes I trimmed into 2 quarter-ish pieces.
Here is the finished card:
I hope you enjoyed my Pink Blog Hop card. Be sure to keep hopping along and check out the other great projects!
