Big on Cute

I stamped this card quite a while ago but didn't upload it here because it was a swap card and I didn't want to spoil the surprise. Now that everyone in the swap has their cards I thought I would share it with you. I used the Big on Spring stamp set for the main image and background basics for the tone on tone background on the barely banana card base. The stars in the background are actually stamped with so saffron ink to make them show up a little bit more.

I used my certainly celery stampin' write marker to color in the letters of the sentiment. I stamped the onesie again on a piece of barely banana card stock, colored it with regal rose and certainly celery markers, trimmed it out and attached it to the original sentiment image with a dimensional. The I used the brown paper backing left over from when I mounted the set as a mask (if this does not make sense, click to see this post) and sponged around the maim image with barely banana ink. I also added some certainly celery sponging around the edges of the whisper white card stock.
I attached the main image to a lovely lilac mat and added a narrow certainly celery ribbon. I then attached the whole thing to a piece of certainly celery card stock which I ran through a crimper. Then I just attached the certainly celery crimped piece to the card base and the card was done.
