"Baby Gel Card'


I made one of these for my friend a few years ago when she was expecting. I haven't had any other friends expecting until now. So I made this one for her. How fun is this card? I used to make gel cards all the time but I haven't made one in over a year. I think I will have to make some more. I totally forgot how much fun they are and how much people like to get them. Here are the directions for the gel cards on SCS.

Here is what it looks like under the dress. The Turquoise paper is the card. It opens just like a regular card. The dress is on the front. Super cute ha? The "cleavage" is just a cut out triangle out of blush blossom that I glued onto the red. I do not have a template for this. But here is what you can do. Click on the picture of the outside of the card and print that out. Cut out the dress. Trace that once on the color that you are going to use for the dress and once on blush blossom for the tummy.
Stamps: Cuddles & Tickles
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Whisper White, Blush Blossom, East Coast Prep DP
Ink: Stazon Black
Accessories: SU Markers, SU Scallop Punch, Ziploc Baggie, Hair Gel, Scor-Tape, Red Grosgrain Ribbon
