Baby Buggy

Today I'm sharing how I made a "Baby Buggy" card.  It's so adorable and you will definitely be the only one giving a special card like this!  Hope you like.
"Baby Buggy"

Stamps:  Short & Sweet (sentiment) (SU!)
Paper:  Pacific Point Blue, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink:  Pacific Point Blue
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot (or cutting machine), large scalloped circle die-cut, Swirls Scribbles Sizzlits die-cut, Sizzix buttons die-cut, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop trim border punch, small oval punch, medium oval punch, scalloped circle punch, two yellow buttons, 6" yellow 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, polka-dot embossing folder

I ran the folded card base through my Big Shot with the scalloped circle die-cut, making sure the fold was inside the circle on the left hand side by about 1/2".  I then ran the card base through the Big Shot again with the polka-dot embossing folder.

I used the 5" x 2" So Saffron cardstock to punch out the scalloped border, trimmed it to size and adhered it to the middle of the buggy and along the front edge of the "bonnet" part of the buggy.  Using the 8" x 2" So Saffron cardstock, I punched out four 1 3/8" circle for the wheels and attached two at the front and two at the back of the card.  It's important to have wheels on the back of the card in order to balance the card so it will sit straight.  Two Pacific Point flower buttons are centered on the wheels on the front of the card.  Two yellow buttons are centered on the flower buttons.

The sentiment was stamped using only half of the "welcome baby" stamp and then framed as per the picture above (popped up with dimensionals).  The Swirls Scribbles die-cut was used for the handle and a yellow bow finished off the card.
