This has to be a quick post today...I went to bed early(ier) last night and completely forgot to write up a post for today!
I was commissioned by a dear friend to make a couple of baby cards for her. One for a baby girl and one for a boy. Can you guess which one this is for??
Yep, it's the baby boy card! It's not quite your traditional baby colors because I sophisicated them a bit by picking more elegant patterned paper in the same colors.
So for this card I used There She Goes's Bit of Stardust set by the fabulous Torico! It's a beautiful set! I stamped three of the onsies in SU's Soft Sky on some scrap Strathmore Bristol Vellum, then cut them out using one of the smaller Labels One nesties. Then I sponged each panel with Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress Ink. Then each one was matted with some Georgia Pacific cardstock and I hand cut the 1/8" border for them.
I used a combination of Bo Bunnies Double Dots patterned paper and October Afternoon's Thrift Store paper for the base of the card. The panels were sponged with Antique Linen and machine stitched in either straight stitch or a zigzag stitch. Oh, and you may not see it in the photo, but the nesties were spritzed with Pearl Glimmer Mist for some pretty sparkle! I made the bow with one of those bow easy thing-a-ma-does! It does a great job doesn't it?!
Ok, gotta head off to work now. Thanks SO much for stopping by today!
