It seems like I know a lot of people having babies right now. I reconnected with a friend recently on Facebook and learned she was due at the end of August with her first child. I was so excited for her, I decided to make her a few things to send in addition to a gift card – what i call the light weight version of baby wipes. 🙂
First I created this photo layout for her using a 5×7 frame. I started with the baby feet wheel and built the layout from there. I found the DSP in my scrap pile and started layering pieces together. After I had it assembled, I wanted to give the stamped image a little kick, so I inked up the wheel in Rose Red and wheeled out some more feet so I could cut them out and glue on top of part of the Chocolate Chip image. Finally, I added one of the Sherbet designer buttons from last catalog.
Then I created a set of simple thank you notes so she has something fun Io send folks who give her little girl baby gifts. I love the Fox and Friends stamp set for baby stuff and so had to use a variety of critters from the set for these cards.
I also stamped the envelopes to match the cards. It was a good reminder about how the quality of paper you stamp on affects your image. I was out of Stampin’ Up! envelopes so I used some of the value pack envelopes that I got from Michaels a while back. Definitely doesn’t grab the ink nearly as well as Whisper White paper, but it works ok.
