Sweet Babies

A customer needed a few baby cards and I had a lot of inspiration from the SU! set that came from the S-A-B mini!! For the boy card I used all SU! cardstock in Bashful Blue, Kraft, Certainly Celery and " " DP (I'm blanking on the name of the designer paper...It'll come back to me!). I matted them together bundled them with the Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain ribbon. I stamped the 'Sweet One' stamp in Chocolate Chip and ran my Sakura clear, gel pen over all of the stars to make them twinkle! I then punched it out with my scallop punch and adhered it with a foam square.

For the girl card I pulled out some paper from Martha Stewart. The polka dots is the backing to the ladybugs so it matches perfectly! I used some Martha Cardstock as well in a bright pink and hot orange color to coordinate and matte all on SU! Whisper White cardstock. I did the same treatment with my Sakura pen on the stars as I did for the boy card. I used this pretty chocolate/pink striped ribbon but it has an iridescent quality to it so it picks up on the orange hues in the DP as well.

My customer LOVED these!! And that's what makes me happiest!!

I hope that everyone is having a creative and BEAUTIFUL (it's almost 65 degrees here in MA!) day!!
