I will say, baby cards are for sure, my very favorite type of card to make. My cousin and her husband just had a tiny baby boy and I wanted to send along a sweet little card to welcome him to our family.
This week's CR84FN color challenge was perfectly suited for the job, and I adore the sweet Baby Onesie Stamp Set and Die-namics. I dug through my well supplied scrap bin and cut into a fresh delivery of Whip Cream and Kraft cardstock I started playing around.
For a baby boy card you can still use elements like lacy trims, and pretty bows, you don't have to stick by the traditional "masculine rules." 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.
By the way, here's a close up of the new MFT Buttons. I'm using the Natural ones here, they're going to be a perfect staple item for me.
I went ahead and finished off the inside of the card, after all, I already had a TON of paper leftover (and by that I mean all over my desk top.) It's just as easy to finish off the inside as it is to clean up the mess. I stamped one of the sentiments to a nesting set of Oval STAX. I left myself just a little bit of room for a handwritten note inside. (I hate my handwriting, so I prefer to leave a small amount of space so I don't mess up my pretty card.)
Be sure to visit the CR84FN blog for all the details and add your sample! It's such a pretty color challenge, I'm sure you'll have a blast creating with it!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm off to my baby brother's wedding this weekend. Time flies!
