New Arrival Baby Card - Robin's Nest

Dew Drops are my favorite product by The Robin's Nest. I can use them to embellish every project, card, or layout that I make. Here I have transformed Round Dew Drops into spectacular glittering bubbles for my new arrival card featuring a baby in the bathtub. Watch my video below to learn how easily I achieved this beautiful affect.

  •   The Robin's Nest Supplies
Other Supplies: Bundle of Joy clear stamp set (Echo Park - Hampton Art), Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue (Ranger), Baby Bathtub Die Cut (Sizzix), white gel pen (Sakura), chalk (Inkadinkado), VersaMark Ink (Tsukineko), 2.5" circle punch (Marvy Uchida), 3" scallop circle punch (Marvy Uchida), clear mounting block, white & blue card stock, 6x6" card base

1. Background - Stamp a small design onto the spotty pattern paper using VersaMark Ink. Using a cotton ball lightly apply chalk over the image. Pat gently...don't rub.  Stamp additional images onto white card stock, color, and punch. Attach the decorated card stock to the card base.  Lastly, use a white gel pen to add faux stitching details around the edge of the card base.

2. Main Image - Die cut the baby in the bathtub onto white cardstock. Use chalk to color it using a cotton swab.  Use a paper punch to cut a 2.5" circle & 3" scallop edge circle.  Adhere the baby to the center of the circular mattes using foam tape. Add the duck embellishments and use a white gel pen to add faux stitching details around the edge of the circular matte.

3.  Dew Drops - Select blue, white, & clear Dew Drops in a variety of sizes.  Press each Dew Drop into a piece of re-positionable putty so they will be temporarily secure.  Apply Stickles Glitter Glue onto each Dew Drop and set aside to dry. When they are dry, gently peel them from the putty and adhere them to the card.

 A Closer Look:

Look at those pink cheeks!
 Add dimension by shading with grey chalk!
glittering bubbles!
faux stitching details!

Don't forget the finishing touch...a coordinating envelope.
I think you too will find Dew Drops are the perfect accent for any project.
