The Cutting Edge Challenge #11...A Card for Baby Mercy

It's time for challenge # 11 at The Cutting Edge!!   This week's inspiration card is a fun one, made by Melania!!   
The use Melania's card for your inspiration and create a card that includes die cutting (all forms accepted).  There’s so much about this project to be inspired by!!  Here’s what I created:
I really chose all the elements of Melania's card...loved them all...thought it so cool that the elephant I used even had a heart on his ear...Melania's camera had a heart in the center of it's!!  The card was made for my son-in-law's brother's baby coming in November...her name will be Mercy and the colors of her nursery are mint and coral with lots of all the elements of the card are made for HER (but you could easily personalize this with another name and colors!):)!! Here's a close up...

  1. O SO CUTE! I have ONE question...HOW did you get the vent with TWO colors?
    Wish you had a video showing how you did this--Absolutely wonderful card!

  2. Just love this card Lisa, gorgeous colours and so sweet the baby elephant and tiny row of hearts - Lovely

  3. Hey Ruth! I actually die cut with the vent die in both the mint and coral/peach colors, adhered a piece of paper behind my card vent with lots of stick on it, and placed each of those colored strips into place. Hope that makes sense...and I AM working on videos:):)!!!

  4. Thanks Lisa for getting back to me on that--I'm sure it took a little time to do it but it sure did turn out to be a stunning card-GREAT JOB! Now, I have to go put that little elephant and the matching dies in my wishlist-
    LOL! TFS AND for the inspiration!

  5. Love the personalisation here. The elephant is too cute. Love the colours - feels very modern, love how you matched it to the baby's nursery. Cx
