Vintage Baby Card

Hello everybody,
Happy New Year! May it bring you bundles of health, happiness, prosperity and crafting inspiration!

Here is my latest creation:


This card was probably one of the most detailed ones I have done so far, meaning, many different techniques were used to create it...


The very first layer is a piece of white tulle that is slightly bigger than dimensions of the card so it is peeking behind all other layers. The second layer is a piece of white cardstock covered with crinkled hot pink tissue paper that was treated with two heavy layers of gesso. Tissue paper was optional element to use on the card at The Mixed Media Card Challenge Blog. I used the sketch from Fusion Challenge to create this card.
The banner was made using Inspired by Stamping music sheet paper. I covered it white a very thin layer of gesso and stamped some little doilies on it and also randomly on the cardstock to satisfy requirement for The Artistic Stamper Challenge that requires some stamping on challenge entries.



I created this frame using my Cricut machine, it was a Sophisticated Cartridge cutout. The bottom layer was covered with a thin layer of gesso to dull down the shine of the cardstock. The top layer was covered with texture paste and glitter. I hope you can see the shimmery glittery on it... Little stroller is also a Cricut cutout again covered with light coat of gesso to give it that rustic look. I mounted the top layer of the frame with foam adhesive to give it some dimension. The frame was the theme of Vintage Utfordring Challenge #93


I added this white shabby bow and embellished it with a vintage button that has music sheet on it. You can see the layer of cardstock that I added some damask stencil texture paste to it...

  4. Wow Samra, I am blown away right now! This is a mixed media party and you are the honouree!! Your soft colours are perfect for a baby card and I love that little baby buggy! Your use of texture paste on the frame to give it dimension is just fabulous and your tissue background turned out fantastic! I can see the shimmer of your glitter just fine, and it is gorgeous! Love the bit of textured damask you added at the bottom, a touch of elegance to a shabby work of art!

    Thank you so much Samra for playing along with me in my very first challenge as a Frilly and Funkie gal!

    1. Thank you so very much Pamellia! I am so happy for you that you are DT at Frilly and Funkie!! The colors in the picture did not turn out as soft as this card truly is :( and I was so disappointed that I could not capture the tulle layer properly, but I hope that people will still like it. :) Have a wonderful day!! Hugs :)

    2. Like it? I love it!!!! I know what you mean though, sometimes I want to throw my camera off the balcony! It's so frustrating to add details to a card and then not be able to capture it with the camera! Guess you will have to move to Canada so I can see all your work in person!

      WAIT...what the heck am I saying...I should move to Vegas! Yes, that's the better idea! HA! hugs :)
