I recently attended a baby shower for my husband’s cousin’s son, Tyler. This handsome young man made his appearance much earlier than expected and spent several months in the hospital. He is home now and doing very well.
Here is a look at the card and mini photo album that I made for the shower.
The colors I used were Baja Breeze and Whisper White. The stamp set is Baby Bundle. Such a lovely color combo for a baby boy! I brayered on some Baja Breeze to the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder and ran it through the Big Shot with a piece of Whisper White card stock. It leaves the Baja ink smooshed into the crevices of the embossing. Neat effect (thanks Paula)! The Whisper White grosgrain ribbon is simply wrapped and tied and a Vintage Trinket safety pin added for fun!
The mini album was pretty easy to make. I used the Top Note die and the Big Shot using the OnBoard sheets. I then ran it through using some old retired Baja Breeze DSP from the Patterns package. I adhered it to the OnBoard die cut using an Anywhere Glue Stick. It works beautifully. Adhesive Tip: Apply the glue stick to the OnBoard piece. If you apply it to the DSP, you run the risk of the paper tearing when you are smoothing it onto the OnBoard piece. Don’t ask me how I know…just trust me on this one :) It is held closed with a length of retired Baja Breeze Satin ribbon. The sentiment is punched with the Decorative Label Punch. The inside is simply a piece of Basic Black that I punched the long edges using the Spiral Punch. It is scored accordion style. You could add more spaces to yours but I wanted to keep it small and simple as I didn’t have too many photos to choose from.
Isn’t he a doll? Such a cutie!! And so very tiny!! Only 1 lb. 15 oz. at birth. He is growing quickly and up to around 7 pounds or so now. Babies are such a blessing! Congratulations to Gary and Mandy! Enjoy your little bundle of love!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve been inspired by something you’ve seen today!
Forgive me for the photos. I just can’t seem to get some colors to photograph nicely. Baja Breeze is one of those colors :(
