Sister's Baby Boy Card

My sister WAS due on April 6 - but had her baby boy on March 27th!  Mom and baby are home and doing well!  I'll be able to visit them this summer - my daughter is due in a few weeks!  It will be very exciting for the cousins to be together!

I wanted to make a onesie card for her.  I used a cutfile from Jen C. using Design Studio and the George cartridge.  Jen's blog is Brain Things Already.

I used my Cuttlebug and the Seeing Spots embossing folder with Core'dinations Whitewash cardstock.  I love how it looks after you emboss and sand it!  I used Elegant Edges (can you tell it's one of my favorites?) for the scalloped shape.  The stamp is from a Recollections baby set.  I popped it up with foam adhesive.  The "snaps" on the onesie are some of those flat "stones" that were all the rage a while back.  I found mine at Michael's - I think with the floral supplies.

Birthday Cards!

I made a couple of simple cards for both my husband and sister earlier this month. 

I used the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge for the scalloped shape.  The patterned paper is from the DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Boy mat stack.  I used a dollar stamp from Michael's for the bird, and My Pink Stamper's Punnylicious set for the sentiment.  The ribbon is from my stash.

 My husband's card was very quick!  I scrapbook at our kitchen table, and had to find a few minutes when he wasn't around!  I used two Cricut cartridges - Elegant Edges for the shape, and Martha Stewart Birthday Cake Art for the Happy Birthday.  The patterned paper was from my stash.  I used foam adhesive to pop up the shape.
