Paper crafting Monthly Blog Hop - Sale-a-bration!!

Hello and Welcome to our Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop!!  This group is international with lots of brilliant contributions that will really inspire you!

My card features the lovely Sale-a-bration stamp set: Cradled in Love.

I've gone for a generic colour scheme as I don't know who this card is for yet, but I love the cool fun z fold with the baby cot in the middle.  

The card folds to fit into a standard envelope easily.

ON the back of the card is a lovely stamped panel for writing a greeting to the recipients.  

Here's another view of the card and cradle.  

The Measurements for this card :
Lemon Lolly card base 10.5 x 29.8cm scored at 7.5 and 15cm on the long side
I have Lemon Lolly panels for each section of the card.  They are:  2 pieces 7 x 10cm and another piece 10 x 14cm
The white cradle is made with a long strip into a box shape
It is 4cm x 29.8cm scored at 5, 14, 19 & 28cm
Each end of the cradle is 5 x 8cm.

To create the vertical rungs of the cradle I stamped the solid pencil piece from Trusty Tools repeatedly to make the strips using Lemon Lolly ink.  

The cradle ends were created using the Very Best Trio punch and the legs punched using the Modern Oval punch.  These are attached to each end of the box shape.

When the little cradle is made, it is attached to the very centre of the z fold card.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project - keep hopping to see lots of great projects!!
