Baby Screen Card

Hi, Lois here with a card I made using the brand new Baby Dies, which are so very cute.  And right now they're 25% off, so be sure to go over to the store site and check them out!

Supplies used on my card are:

Pink cardstock - 11" x 5 1/2", scored at 3 3/4" and 7 1/4"
Dark pink cardstock (3 panels) - 3 1/4" x 4"
Patterned paper (3 panels) - 3 1/8" x 3 7/8"
White cardstock large enough to cut pieces
Scrap of pink and dark pink large enough to cut circle pieces
Various Copic markers for coloring die-cut pieces
Punches to cut border top and legs
CottageCutz dies - Baby Animal Mobile, Baby Girl Tag Topper, Pram, Stork w/Baby Mini

To start my card, I cut the pink cardbase 11" x 5 1/2", scored at 3 3/4" and 7 1/4", and punched the border top and legs.  You could use any border punch for the top; mine is an EK Success punch that has small moons and stars.  There are many different punches you could use to cut the legs.   I used the Modern Label punch from Stampin' Up.

Then  I cut the dark pink matting pieces and pattern paper . . .

. . .  and adhered the dark pink pieces onto the three panels of the screen.

I cut out  the various pieces from white cardstock, except for the tag topper, where I used scraps of light and dark pink.

I colored the various die cuts and constructed the pram, stork and baby, and tag topper.  I decided that it would be easier to construct the mobile directly on the panel rather than pre-make it, although I did "build" the animals that had several pieces (the giraffe, zebra and lion -- as well as the sun).

I then glued the pram to the first panel, built the mobile on the second panel, and glued the stork with the baby and the tag topper to the third panel . . .

. . . and adhered all three panels to the card.
