Starry Stork -- Baby Cards with Crafting with Dragonflies

This fortnight at Crafting with Dragonflies our theme is Baby Cards.

I used the fork trick to make the bow with seam binding from Paper Sweeties. I added extra color to the ribbon with my Frost Blue Copic marker, which also stiffened it. I tied the silver stork charm onto it.

I stamped the trio of stars in Orange (Craft Smart), Baja Blue & Coral (Quick Quotes) inks. The stamp was made with a bottle cork & wood veneer stars, as inspired by Hand Made Kultur.

The card base is from the cloud shaker card kit by Jillibean Soup. I used ZipDry silicon glue to wrap the plastic cloud with a coral-colored, polka-dotted ribbon from my stash. I filled the shaker with orange & blue glitter shapes (Recollections) and sealed it with a piece of scrap acetate.
