Two New Baby Boys

April 21, 2012

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.

I made the second card using the same embossing folders and elements but using Marina Mist card stock instead of the Bashful Blue card stock.  I changed the orientation to landscape as well.

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.
