Authentique Paper - Heaven on Earth

Baby cards are always a pleasure to create - they would be one of the cards, along with Weddings that people tend to keep...so I love to make them special - which is not hard using the adorable Precious Collection by Authentique™ Paper, 

I have cut/embossed the patterned paper and sentiment using the A2 Modern Stationary Spellbinders® Nestabilities® Card Creator #7 and #6 Dies. 

NOTE: Spellbinders number their Dies from the smallest to the largest - the smallest being #1

The embossed edges have been sanded using a Sanding Block, giving a soft and distressed look.  The sentiment is then popped up using Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares

A paper Rose and Want2Scrap© Swirls Finesse - LeCreme has been trimmed and added to the flower.

The Authentique™ Paper sentiment has been layered into a Lacey Circles  Nestabilities® and popped up on 3D Foam Squares for added dimension.

This card is for the following changes: 
Allsorts - Use those dies 
Little Claire's  - Monotone

  9. Hello Linda. Your sweet little baby card is beautifully done. Your layering of different papers and patterns is very effective. I also really like your flourish bling and the sweet flower on the one corner and the vintage baby image on the opposite corner. I appreciate your joining in and sharing your card with us at A Vintage Journey. However since it does not have a strong Tim Holtz influence or products used, it won't be eligible for our prize. <3 Candy
