Baby Bonnet Card





Hello everyone! It's time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This time the challenge is "Congratulations" (think graduation, new baby, new job, etc.) 
I have had the idea for this card for quite awhile. So I decided to finally make it and guess what? I couldn't believe it when I went to look for a baby bonnet on one of my carts that I only had 1 and it was a front view cut! So I did a search and found a total of 2 baby bonnets available on all the carts that are out there! Well needless to say I didn't let that deter me. I ended up creating this bonnet in CCR with using only George and Basic Shapes. I am going to include a picture of the CCR screen so you can see how I did it. 
After I had the basic shape that I wanted, I grouped them and then copied and welded the other to make the card base. I decorated the front by using white crinkle ribbon with a combination of embossing and a punched border. To finish I stamped the tag and added more crinkle ribbon and a button for the ties. I love how this card turned out....just as I saw it in my head! LOL!
I hope you will all come play along and please don't forget to check out what the rest of the amazing DT has created! I can't wait to see what you will create! Have a great day.
