Welcome to the first BBTB2 Blog Hop of the 2012. If you've come from Julia's fabulous Blog, you're on the right track, but if you've happened here by accident, you might wish to go back to BBTB2 and start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing. I still can't believe January is almost gone already. My esteemed co-leader and all around great gal, Carole chose the baby carriage from New Arrival this week and although I do have the cart, I decided to play with another one I've only used once so far, which is Car Decals. I came across the "Oh Baby" sentiment while browsing MyCutSearch.com, an invaluable tool when trying to find cut options for your Cricut. The shadows of both cuts were welded in DS and then to a long rectangle from George to make my usual shaped front card (that I failed to get a picture of because I was in such a hurry yesterday to hit the shopping trail...oops!) I sort of squished the "Oh Baby" part and hid the contours of the center of the letters with DS in order to hide the sentiment inside.
Other than the shadow, there are not a lot of layering options on Car Decals so I cut it several times and hand cut portions of the striped body of the buggy out so I could pop it and added little button both on top and behind the wheels. Trimmed her little bow as well and added a pearl and some emerald eyes. (Love her little curl.)
As I said, there wasn't a whole lot of layering options, but I did my best. And I found a cute little "binky" button in my drawer and tied it to the heart. Cute, eh?
Now on to dear Carole's Blog to view her frothy confection (It is really yummy!) but before you go, please leave a comment for a chance to win this Cuttlebug Love Language Card Making Combo, just in time for Valentine's Day. I'll draw the winner on Friday February 3rd so you all come back now, ya hear?
