********Kalidescope of Spring Color JustRite 052

More than a card!  I was inspired with the colors of JustRite's 052 challenge (buttercup yellow, soft apricot, spring green, violet blue with a splash of brown) to create this card/gift.  Headbands for babies with big flowers are very poular these days and I love card making.  So, I made this presenation card to surprise my daughter/grandaughter.  She can wear the headband and the card goes in her scrapbook.  To make the card I first created the paper by blending yellow, apricot, green and violet blue watercolors on a piece of white watercolor paper.  When the paper was dry, I stamped/masked/stamped the background design using JustRite's Kalidescope rubber stamp.  The headband was made with a piece of  peach elastic lace and a two-tone yellow/dark peach silk flower.  A Spellbinders Label 20 was cut from violet blue  cardstock, which was then covered  with Sakura Crystal Lacqer and lightly sprinkled with with Art Institute crystal glitter.  A smaller Labels 20 was then cut from a light yellow paper,  I sponged a bit of light blue ink (Stampin Up) and using JustRite's Special Occassions 50 point font to create the sentiment. (and isn't she a pretty baby!) .  The finishing touches - brown chipboard flourish, peach dew drops, and two tiny violet blue pearls were used as accents.  Then, as soon as it was made, I gave the card to my daughter and grandaughter was happy to model her new wardrobe acquisition.  How fun! 


  1. Great idea! Headbands are definately in - beautiful color combination! And what a pretty baby :)

  2. What a clever idea. Making your paper and a gift for baby too. Well done

  3. I love the headband and card. What a adorable baby. I love her cheeks.
