Two New Baby Boys
This past week I have welcomed two new baby boys into my extended family. Both Mum’s and babies are doing well. So welcome Joshua and Lucas.
For my first card I used Bashful Blue and added a layer of Whisper White which I embossed using the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. I punched a 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle from Chocolate Chip card stock and attached it to the embossed Whisper White Card stock. Then I added a layer of Chocolate Chip which I embossed using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to the card front over the top of the scallop circle. I punched a 1-3/4″ Circle from Whisper White card stock and attached it to the centre of the Chocolate Chip Scallop Circle using dimensionals. I punched Bashful Blue card stock using the Stocking Builder Punch (retired) and cut it down slightly. I used Whisper White card stock and the same punch to get the cuff, heel and toe pieces. Once I attached the pieces I embossed the whole “bootee” using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. I attached the booties to each other and to the Whisper White 1-3/4″ Circle using Mini Glue Dots. Once I got this far I suddenly realised I didn’t have any Bashful Blue ribbon so I used Marina Mist 1/8″ Tafetta Ribbon to tie a bow and attached it to the top of the booties using a Mini Glue Dot. I don’t think it looks too bad with the Bashful Blue. I stamped “welcome baby” from the Short and Sweet stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out using the Word Window Punch. The greeting is attached to a Bashful Blue Modern Label and then to the card front using dimensionals.
Well, what do you think? I love them both, even though I did use a retired punch. I’m really sorry that this punch is retired because I love using it to make these cute little booties.
Bye for now, Kris.
