(Today's 2nd post, please scroll down or click for Creative Card Crew post. Thank you.)
Good Tuesday Morning! Since it's Tuesday, that means I have another fun sketch to share with you from Tuesday Morning Sketches! This is a fun one...I like the unique shape and the fact that you can make it CAS or jazz it up a bit.
We recently went on a little trip to get some stuff for our attic addition; I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do a little bit of craft shopping too. Do you think you could drive by your favorite craft store and not stop? Not me! I have always liked making baby cards and I couldn't pass up these pretty papers from the Doodlebug "Sugar and Spice" collection. I used 3 of the papers here, but there are plenty more in my stash! LOL I bought a stash of the boy themed papers too....
There's very little stamping on this card; just the onesie, which I paper pieced. I added a bit of pink glitter around the trim of the onesie just to give it a touch of sparkle...after all, most girls like a bit of sparkle! For embellishing, I added a touch of grosgrain ribbon and some Doodlebug buttons from my stash that matched perfectly. The finished card size is 7 1/2" x 4".
