Room For Baby

Baby cards are one of my favorite types of cards to make.  It's always a happy celebration and these dies from Taylored Expressions have been sitting in my pile of NBUS for way too long so it's time to bust them out and give them some love!  

 I started by cutting all the shapes from Build A Scene Nursery and Rocking Horse out of white cardstock.

I colored some of the dies using Copic markers and left the crib and rocking chair white.

 I cut the front panel from printed paper using an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle with an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Oval cut from the center to create a window.  I backed the printed paper using Double Sided Adhesive Thick Foam Sheets from Cheery Lynn to give it dimension.  

I then used the coordinating Elizabeth Craft Designs Dotted Scallop Oval with the same Stitched Oval cut out of the center to create a white scalloped frame to frame the window in the front panel.  

To help me decide how I wanted to layout the scene in the window, I used the center oval die and played around with the layout until I found the one I liked.

I used the negative piece of the oval and adhered some printed papers onto the front, then trimmed around the edges.  I adhered the die cuts using Glossy Accents.  

I finished the card off by adhering the front window panel over the top of the card front.

I like how the scene is inset from the card front giving it dimension and interest.
