Congratulations!

Hi everyone! I'm super stoked to share my first inspiration project as a proud new member of the Really Reasonable Ribbon design team! Woot-woot! I can't tell you how excited I am about this opportunity!

For my post today, I created an over-the-moon cute Congrats card for a co-worker who is expecting her first child the day after Christmas! The Baby Boy Onesie cut file is from the Silhouette store and I thought it was a great place to start. It's been a while since I created a baby card and I really had a good time with this one. I used the absolutely gorgeous RRR Sheer with Satin Center Ivory ribbon which was a joy to work with. Not only is it beautiful but it's durable and makes an awesome bow!


Here's a close-up of that gorgeous double loop bow I created it with my Bow-it-All - undoubtedly one of the best crafting tools I've ever owned! Be sure to check out Bonnie's awesome bow tutorials on YouTube!


I dug through my stash of baby stuff and found some tiny gold charms, and thought the pacifier was perfect dangling from the bow! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and used a little Wink of Stella on the clouds. I cut the image with a circle die and layered it on a scalloped die cut that matched the trim on the onesie. Love, love, love!


I kept the inside simple, as I generally do, just stamping a sentiment on a blue layer matching the lighter blue in the patterned paper.


Proud to enter this adorable onesie card into the following challenges:

Recipe:
  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, baby paper from stash
  • Stamps: Bugaboo Digi Stamps Baby Moon digital image, Lost Coast Designs Party Words stamp set, GKD Blessing From Above stamp set

  • Dies/Punches: Silhouette Baby Boy Onesie cut file, Spellbinders Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles dies
