Retro Baby Card


Hello! Today I have a retro baby card to share with you! I'm sure they still make this toy in a more modern form but I can remember my brother having one of these when he was little! Along with the phone that had moving eyes when you pulled it across the floor! The original 1st "eye" phone (seen those memes all over Facebook!).  Guess I'm showing my age now! Anyway this was a fun card to make an a good way to use up scraps. I used my SU word window punch to make my "rings". added lots of texture with the 3 different embossing folders. Made a couple extra "toys" to turn into cards later while I was at it. Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping by an have a great day!

I love this! Great idea for how you made the rings for the toy, and I LOVE the embossing folders! I need to pull mine out. I hardly ever use them anymore. Thanks for joining us at Paper Play Skteches.
