SVG Attic Guest Designer - Melissa Miranda

Hey SVG Attic Fanatics! I am so excited to be joining you today. This is Melissa from M Miranda Creations and I am today's Guest Designer.
I love making cards, so that is what I have for you today. I used files from two different sets - Tent Cards and Baby Boy. Great thing about this card is that it can also be used as a centerpiece on the tables for a baby shower or as a baby announcement (just take off the 'Congrats').

The card is A2 size (5 1/4" x 4 1/2"). I used Coredinations Teal Stripe and Moonstone cardstocks and Recollections white cardstock. The base of the card is from the Tent Cards collection. Just open the file and follow the instructions on the PDF to get the card to the size you'd like. The onesie, plane, train, and the 'It's a Boy' phrase are all from the Baby Boy collection. The 'Congrats' is a die and does not come with either collection.

To make the card, I first assembled my base partially by attaching the bottom piece to the back panel of the card. I then cut a piece of white cardstock to 5 7/8' x 4 3/8" and attached it to the inside on the back panel. I did this to make it sturdier since the Coredinations paper is a lighter weight cardstock and to cover up the seam at the bottom where the bottom panel attached to the back panel. I did not want that seam to show when you look through the window in the front. For the front, I ran the oval insert piece through my Cuttlebug in the Swiss Dots embossing folder and attached it to the inside of the front panel of the card. I then added my wording to my onesie and used foam squares on the edge of the sleeves and at the very bottom of the onesie to pop this piece off the inside front panel. I then added the plane and train with a piece of Tickled with Teal Trendy Twine to the front of the card also using foam squares to add another layer of dimension. Once everything was added I attached the front panel to the bottom panel and was finished.
I wish you could see the card in person. The moonstone cardstock for the onesie, plane, and train is a shimmer paper that is just beautiful on this project. I hope you will give this a try and then share your finished piece on the SVG Attic Fanatics FB Group. I'd love to see all the color/paper combos you all could come up with! Also stop by the store to see all the fun collections and get creative!
I will see you again later this month; but until then, I invite you to stop by my blog - M Miranda Creations. Have a fantastic Wednesday!
