The opportunities for me to create baby cards have been limited, so today’s card is special to me given this fact. I also have to admit, my stamping supplies for creating baby cards are also pretty limited. That said, a friend’s granddaughter recently celebrated her first birthday and my friend was in need of a homemade card idea for her granddaughter. Being new to the world of stamping and card-making, she asked if I could assist her, so I created this card for her.
Before I share my card creation with you, I thought I would share a couple additional details. The design for this card was inspired by a card created by Mary Fish of Stampin’ Pretty, so this is my CASE of Mary’s original creation. I chose to use a onesie as the focal point of the card as my friend’s granddaughter was turning one year old. I also chose to use a couple stamps from a carryover stamp set called Paisleys & Posies (originally from the 2016 Holiday catalog and on page 55 of the Occasions catalog) which I had among my collection of stamping supplies, as the baby’s name is Paisley. Take a look at my paisley onesie for Paisley.
The clear faceted button used with the baker’s twine bow is a retired embellishment. All other supplies used in the card can be found in the current 2016-2017 Annual Catalog and the 2017 Occasions Catalog. The list of current supplies can be found at the bottom of my post. What do you think? How might you change this design up?
Here is a peek at the inside of the card. The sentiment comes from the stamp set Milestone Moments in the current 2017 Occasions Catalog. This is a wonderful and versatile set for all those milestone moments.
Before wrapping up my post today, I have one final picture to share with you. Speaking of onesies, I couldn’t help but share this picture of our delightful Yorkie-poo, Panda, with you. About four days after we rescued her from a local shelter, we took her for her first Veterinary visit. She had been licking her surgical incision quite a bit, so the Veterinarian suggested we purchase a baby onesie for her rather than putting her in the “cone of shame.” She LOVED her onesie, and was a real trooper with having to fasten and unfasten the snaps before/after going outside. Here she is being a real couch potato.
Isn’t she just adorable surrounded by some of her toys? This photo was taken last July when she was just over one and a half years old. In case you’re wondering, my husband is the Chief’s fan in our family. I have to confess though, I do cheer for the Chiefs, too, when our teams are not playing against each other.
Thank you for stopping by today. Have a most wonderful day!
