The baby carriage begins with a piece of So Saffron cardstock die cut in the Big Shot using the 3 1/2" circle Originals die then inserted into the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions embossing folder and run through the Big Shot again. The die cut circle was cut apart into two pieces: one piece is 1 7/8" wide and the other 1 5/8" wide, then the 1 5/8" wide piece was reduced to 1 3/8" wide. The edges of both pieces were sponged with So Saffron ink. A piece of Chantilly Crochet Trim was placed along the straight edge of each piece with a piece of Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta ribbon placed along the center of the crochet trim. The top of the carriage was adhered to the card front using Mini Glue Dots and the bottom of the baby carriage was adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The carriage wheels begin with a piece of So Saffron cardstock punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch and matted with a 1 3/8" circle punched from Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. The hub for each wheel begins with a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock punched with the 1" circle punch, the edges sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink, and spokes scored using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. A hole was pierced through the center of the hub and a Very Vanilla Neutrals 5/16" brad was inserted with the brad legs set at the back of the hub. The hub was adhered at the center of the wheel using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The push handle for the carriage was die cut from Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Big Shot and the Swirls Medium die and the edges sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink. Two tags were tied to the die cut with Linen Thread. The tags were stamped using Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and So Saffron inks on Whisper White cardstock, a hole punched at the top of each tag using the 1/16" circle punch, and the tags punched out with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch. The swirl was adhered to the card front behind the front of the carriage with Mini Glue Dots and the tags were adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The giraffe print was slid into the carriage and adhered to the card front. A head from a second giraffe was cut out and placed over the head of the adhered giraffe using Stampin' Dimensionals. The monkey head with hands was cut out and adhere to the card front at the top edge of the carriage bottom using two Stampin' Dimensionals stacked on top of each other. A second monkey head (this time minus the hands) was placed on top of the first monkey head using Stampin' Dimensionals.
A monkey was cut out with Paper Snips and added to the back flap of the envelope just for fun.
