Baby on Board!

My husband needed a baby card for a co-worker this week.  This is what I came up with....using the new Enjoy the Ride stamp set from PTI!!  Way, way, cute stamp set that has a coordinating die for the car!!!
I also tried my "accident" rick rack again today!!  I LOVE the larger rick rack!!!  Just run your die through twice however wide you want your rick rack.  The middle piece between the 2 actual rick racks is a larger piece!!!  When you are done, you actually have 2 pieces for your scrap pile that you won't have to cut later!!


Also, had to use my new favorite set, A Little Argyle too!!  This will definitely be one of those "all the time" sets to use!!!  This is not a standard A2 card......the Hibiscus Burst base was actually a scrap from my pile so I just used that!!  As I was photographing this, I knocked it off the stand several time and bent one corner and made a dent in the rick rack!!  ughhh.....  Here is a close up of the car....Love how the headlights  size is PERFECT for those larger rhinestones!!  I wish that you could see that I outlined the license plate with a silver gelly pen!!  It really sparkles IRL!!!


Well, what do you think?  Have a great week!!

That is soooo cute! I love how you are using the ric rac die! And, I also really love how you used two pieces on the label to make it look like "she's" driving down the road! Very cute!

OK, I think you should quit your day job and just stay home and stamp for your faithful followers like myself!
My favorite part? The nestie shape with the road! So clever girly!
Of course your ingenious ric rac trick looks cool, as does your argyle BG. But those headlights rock!
