Graphic 45 Little Darlings Collection


Hello everyone!  

I have another sneak peek for you from Winter CHA.  Graphic 45 is taking you "behind the scenes" at the show and will be featuring projects from the Design Team.  This is one of my projects titled "Happiness Be Yours."  Be sure to head over to the blog to see more gorgeous projects from the team and peeks from the show.

I love creating unique shaped cards.   I went through all of my Cricut cartridges to find just the right shape to coordinate with the Little Darlings collection.  While both the New Arrival and Heritage carts had gorgeous carriages, I chose this vintage baby carriage from the Heritage cart.  This is one of my favorite cartridges to use for my vintage projects and this shape was the perfect match for my patterned papers. 

I cut the background using white cardstock which I inked with Old Paper Distress Ink.  Next, I cut the main image using “Little Treasures”.  I added a paper border, Graphic 45 trim, Pom Pom trim and a beautiful white ribbon to embellish my card.  I finished my design with a beautiful “For Baby” image from “Bundle of Joy” and round punched circles (from “Baby Borders”) in the center of the wheels (topped with Diamond Stickles). 

The inside of my card has a message that reads "Happiness Be Yours".  Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of it before I sent it off! 

The stamp I used for the sentimet is from Crafty Secrets called Card Sentiments.
