Welcome Little One

A friend of mine needed a boy's baby card so of course I volunteered! I love making cards, but I really really REALLY enjoy it when the card I'm making actually has a purpose. Don't get me wrong...my cards don't go to waste...I do use them or gift them, but I like it when I can design for a specific event/person. :)

My favourite baby card is the onesie...SO cute and absolutely perfect for either a boy or a girl. So that's what I created...a darling little blue onesie. I don't recall where I first saw this card and I didn't use a template to create mine, just made a few cuts and punched out a few circles.

The card base is island mist light and I paired it with circles of Choice Buttercream. The teddy image is from my Hangin' Out set by Taylored Expressions. He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream, coloured with copic markers and cut out. I gave his tummy a plaid look with my colourless blender. I debated layering him onto another colour but I think simplicity is this card's best friend. I did pop him on foam tape though for a little dimension, then I added three buttons for the "snap closures". I stamped the sentiment "welcome little one" on the inside of the card but forgot to photograph that part before I gave it away!

Thanks for stopping by!
