Personalized Baby Card


One of my bloggy friends delivered a baby boy a couple of weeks ago, and this is the card that I made for her.  Since I knew I would be mailing this in a padded envelope,  I didn't worry too much about the size; I just made it big enough for my cuts.  It ended up being 5 1/2" x 7 1/8".  The blue grid background is from one of my new favorite paper packs, Papertrey Ink's Bitty Box Basics.


The clothesline is cut from the Cricut Baby Steps cartridge.  I cut it at 4 3/4" and trimmed off the stars that would be at the top of the posts, replacing them with some pretty Echo Park brads.  The onesies were cut with my Imagine.  They are a stock image and were cut at 1 1/2" each out of paper from the DCWV Baby Boy Stack.  On each one I added a circle die cut from My Creative Time's Build a Banner Kit and stamped with a letter from Anyday Bingo & Crossword.  I then added my own little "clothespins" that I just hand cut from kraft cardstock and popped up each onesie with dimensional adhesive.


This sweet sentiment is from MCT's All Star Baby stamp set.  I stamped it onto cream cardstock and cut a banner shape around it.  Congrats to sweet baby Chase's family!
