Fab Friday Theme Challenge - For Baby: Label Love

Good morning to the last week of summer before the kids go back to school next week.  We always choose to vacation this last week as a last hooray to summer and let’s be honest, vacation places are usually not as crowded and not as expensive which is also a plus.  Today I decided to play along with the Fab Friday challenge group and they had something fun this time.  One of the designers, Mindy, recently had a baby to today it’s a theme challenge “baby,” which is lots of fun.  I know Mindy had a boy but we have lots of friends having girls so I made my card in girl colors so I can use it right away.

 For this card I started with Crisp Cantaloupe and then I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock and used the Hearts and Stars mask to sponge some stars on the white with Crisp Cantaloupe ink.   I used the Big Shot and Decorative Dots Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and then sponged the piece with Baked Brown Sugar ink so the embossing really pops.  I added a piece of Lullaby Designer Series Paper and matted it with Hello Honey cardstock.  I used some of the Baked Brown Sugar and Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine to wrap around the DSP layer and then tied a nice thick bow.

For the greeting I used the Label Love stamp set and stamped it twice, once on Whisper White cardstock and Crisp Cantaloupe ink and punched the center out with the 7/8” Scallop Circle Punch and the second time on Baked Brown Sugar cardstock with the same color ink before punching it out with the Artisan Label Punch.  This makes a great layering effect and dimensionals really help it all pop.

This card is so cute and a great way to welcome a new little one to the family. Do you know friends or family who are expecting?  I love making baby cards and also like to make thank you cards for the expecting parents as a special gift so they’re all prepared when they receive gifts.  There is something special about taking the time to hand write a note of appreciation, I know it’s something my mom taught me and I’m teaching Aidan (I even write him thank you notes for gifts so he doesn’t think there are double standards).
