Whimsie Doodles Release Day - CPS156


As I mentioned yesterday, today is New Release Day at Whimsie Doodles!! I am going to share a card using the new Baby Sentiments set. This set was created to coordinate with the two new adorable baby bear images - Baby Bear Standing and Baby Bear Sitting.


The layout for this card was inspired by the latest CPS sketch - CPS156. Before printing the Whimsie Doodles sentiment, I made sure to resize it to fit the circle die I would be using. That is one of the best advantages of digital stamps; in my opinion.


Because I have some of the stars and the sentiment circle hanging off the right edge, I cut the card base a bit more narrow than usual. The folded size is 3.5" x 5.5" and the card would still fit in a standard-sized envelope.


I used a star stamp from my stash to create the design on the bottom and then inked the edges with the same white.  To tie in the white, I embossed and added a white strip across the card front of the card. Another star was cut from the 'lace cardstock' and added to the center of the sentiment circle.

I was originally going for the 'baby boy look', but realize I got more of a 'patriotic look'. I guess the card can be given for more than one occasion. :)

This digital stamp set is available starting today at the Whimsie Doodles online store! Here is a look at all of the sentiments in the set...
