All the images are stamped in Tsukeniko Memento Tuxedo black. The stitched frame is stamped first, far enough from the edge of the card to accommodate the lace frame images. The lace edge and corner was stamped with Tsukineko StazOn Jet Black on clear acrylic sheets using the stamp positioner. Careful stamping and masking created the lace frame. Then the baby toys were stamped into their positions. After I was satisfied with the design of the card I folded and trimmed it to size.
The background is colored with EK Success craft chalks which allowed for easy shading especially with the lace frame. The toys were colored with Chameleon pens: YL3 Summer Sun, OR4 Seville Orange, RD4 Crimson Red, BL3 Sky Blue, PK3 Bubblegum, BR2 Hot Cocoa, YG3 Spring Meadow. To add the finishing touches the booties have added flocking around the cuffs from a Recollections set of flocking, and several toys and the hearts have glossy accents added with Ranger Inkssentials.
The die cut background for "happy" is cut from white velvet paper and chalked the match the color of the frame. The inner "happy" is die cut and chalked in yellow. The "new baby" is stamped in Tsukineko Memento Luxe Pear Tart and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
