Cute and Sweet!


I made this cute little card for my niece’s baby shower.  The digital image is from Bugaboo Stamps and it’s part of the Bobblehead collection.  I paper pieced the image to co-ordinate the piecing with the background papers.  The card layout is a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

My new favorite toy is the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory.  This is such a keeper.  So I just had to make a matching envelope!


It looks so good together! 

Supplies: Bugaboo digital image, Michaels designer paper and cardstock, SSS card stock, Baby’s Breath embossing folder by Cuttlebug, MFT banner dies, Craft button, Sew Easy string, Spellbinder Oval dies, Craft gems.
