I used my light box and embossing stylus to emboss around the outside of the bib and the bib details. I then cut it out very close to the embossed edge leaving about a 1/32 inch border. After cutting it out I traced around the bib and added the dots with a white gel pen. In retrospect, that probably wouild have been easier to do before I cut it out.
Next I embossed the duck pull toy onto yellow, orange and blue card stock, cut the pieces out and glued them over the embossed duck on the bib. I used a black gel pen to trace the pull-string and color in the wheels. I added the hubs with a silver gel pen.
I created the bow by embossing around the the top of the bow and the ribbon tails, then I rotated the cardstock 180 degrees and traced the top of the bow again forming the bottom of the bow. . I drew a white line around the border and cut it out very close to the edge of the embossing.
The labels and the scalloped mat for this card were made with Design Tool Kit # 2. I didn't bring any stamps with me on this trip so I used my white gel pen to write the words. For the flowers, I used the small flower from Design Tool Kit #3 and embossed it on to yellow card stock. I hadn’t thought of using the design tools for embossing, but it worked very well. After embossing the flowers I traced around them with the white gel pen and add a dots to the centers.
