Oh Baby!

Is it me, or are baby cards the most fun to create project ever?  I was so excited that I had one on my “to-do” list for the newest, tiniest member of my extended family.  I reached for the Baby Onesie Stamp Set and Die-namics and decided that this week’s color challenge for CR84FN was just perfect for what I had in mind.  Armed with an ample scrap bin of papers, and a fresh pack of Whip Cream and Kraft cardstock I started playing around.

Ordinarily I don’t go with ribbon and lacy trims for boy cards, but for a baby boy card, it’s all good.  So I aded a fluffy bow using our Whip Cream Ribbon and a bit of detail using the Dainty Lace Border.

If you have a hard time with bow-tying, you can find a quick how-to video HERE or simply click play below.

Our MFT Ribbon ties such pretty bows, I truly love working with it.

Here’s a close up of the new MFT Buttons (I’m using the Natural ones here)

Here’s a tip, I love to finish of the insides of my cards too.  It’s a perfect handmade touch, and let’s be honest, you’ve always got extra paper scraps laying around when you’re finished, so dig in a little deeper. The stamp set is huge, and has lots of sentiments included, so you’ll have lots of options for both the inside and the outside of the project.  In fact, you can even add a coordinating gift tag!  I stamped it to a nesting set of Oval STAX.  I left myself just a little bit of room for a handwritten note inside.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you again next week!
