Fun and Fast Notes new baby cards

A few weeks ago I had a stall at a local fair and decided I would make a box full of my favourite recess cards. Did I bite off more than I could chew? - you bet!! After making about 20 I had had enough. Plus, as soon as I had made them people kept buying them!!! (I know, that is why I made them in the first place!!) That is the reason there is no pink card, the glue wasn't even dry on the insert before it sold!
This stamp set, Fun & Fast Notes, has to be one of the most versatile sets in the catalogue as there is a stamp for every occasion. I received Fun and Fast Notes in my demonstrator starter kit and have not only used all the images (as there are 8 in the set it is perfect to use at a workshop) I have also used the greetings alongside other images.
On the front of the white recess card I added a frame of Bashful Blue DSP/Tall Tales DSP and inside the recess I added a square of Bashful Blue CS/So Saffron CS. I stamped the image onto a piece of Whisper White with Basic Grey, and then again on Bashful Blue CS/So Saffron CS. I cut out the body of the pram from the coloured card and glued it over the stamped image on the Whisper White. To make the polka dots on the pram I used my white gel pen. Using my Mat Pack and Paper Piercer I pricked a border around the image square and attached it into the centre of the recess. The greeting was stamped onto Whisper White with Basic Grey and punched out using the Stampin' Up! oval punch. This was then attached to coloured card and punched out with the co-ordinating Scallop Oval punch.
As I made sooooooo many recess cards I promise I will only post a few!!!
