Cardmaking with Altered Pages and German Scrap

Hello everyone!  Did you know that March is National Craft Month?  Not only that, but this month, the Altered Pages design team is thrilled to be partnering with KUNZE Deco-Accessories, makers of German Scrap.  We are also featuring the Mailbox Muse kits, too.

There is so much in these kits that you will have plenty of products to play with.  I saw this beautiful pink print paper in the kit, and I knew I had to use it for a card.  Perhaps this card could be used for a baby shower, or to congratulate a couple on their new arrival.  
Make pink card to measure 4-1/2" x 6-1/2".  Trim pink print paper to 4-1/4" x 6-1/4".  Curl two ends, as shown.  

Color CHERISH bingo card with  pink distress ink, edged with brown.  Adhere to card at an angle. 

Use die to cut out doily and ink with brown distress ink.  Use circle die to cut out collage image sized to fit center of doily and adhere to card front.  
Brush red gel paint over daisy border German scrap and adhere with tacky glue around collage image.
Cut German scrap crown apart, as shown, and add black archival ink to bring out embossing.  Adhere top part of crown over baby's head.
Add dots of silver Pico Embellisher to the top of the crown and allow to dry.
Add piece of colored-to-match seam binding ribbon along top edge.  Add a double bow with a creamy yellow rose and leaves.
Highlight pennant point border German scrap and two leaf corners with black archival ink to bring out the embossing.  Add the pennant borders to the top and bottom of the card, as shown, and insert the two corners beneath the curled edges.
