Baby Girl Carriage...

This is a baby carriage I created from the Sizzix Scallops #2 die, it's the larger one of the two. This measures about 4.75 inches, and is too big for an A2 card, I will either use it on a 5.25 card or on a scrapbook page for my youngest daughter. The paper is a shiny textuted by Archivers, the silver and white are SU. I used various punches for the lace, wheels, and handle. I just cut a notch out of the scallop to get the carriage shape. It's really pretty IRL, this sparkly paper will not photograph for me for some reason. I am trying to work on that. This is something I doodled around with until I liked it, but I think I will be making more. I love the look of things like this on my LO's, but buying similar items from Jolees is just outrageously expensive, so part of my New Years thrifty crafting resolution is to be more creative with things like this.
