Today I am sharing the card I made for my daughter for her baby shower. I have always wanted to make this style of card but for some reason, I just never did until now. It was so much fun to make (except for all of the math) and I love how it turned out.
I used the All For Baby Bundle again. It is my favourite baby set in the catalogue.
I started with a card base of Smoky Slate. On top of that I added a layer of Blushing Bride cardstock. On top of that I added my dresser. To make this, I started with a rectangle of Basic White cardstock and used the Everyday Label Punch on the bottom to make it look like the dresser has legs. I added a strip of Basic White cardstock to the top of the dresser to be the top. I stamped my sentiment on this piece using Basic Gray ink. I cut out small rectangles of Basic White cardstock and added them to the dresser using dimensionals. These are the drawers for the dresser. I used a sponge dauber to sponge on some Smoky Slate ink to all of the edges of the dresser and drawers to make it pop a little more. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. To complete the dresser, I added Gilded Gems to be the drawer pulls.
I then stamped the different clothes items on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride and So Saffron inks. I cut the items out using their corresponding dies from the bundle. In the die set there is also a die to cut out the hanger. I cut out two hangers from some Basic Gray cardstock. I used some Tombo multipurpose adhesive to attach the two onesies to the hangers. I attached the onesies to the drawers using dimensionals and the bib using regular adhesive.
What I used for today's card:
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card. I had a lot of fun making it! My daughter loved it and that was the most important thing.
We held her baby shower on Sunday. It was a surprise for her. She knew she was having a shower but she thought it was next weekend at my house. My son in law took her out to do some errands and while they were out, her friends and I snuck in to their house and decorated and got everything set up for the shower. She was totally surprised and loved it all. The theme was High Tea. Initially she thought we should all go out to a fancy restaurant for High Tea but the cost for that was going to be outrageous. She wanted to do it at her house and then plan it all which is why I took over and made it a surprise for her. Otherwise she would have wanted to be involved in every little detail. This was so much better. We used her China tea cups that she got from her husband's grandmother and we used my Mom's China teapot. That way they were there with us as well.
For the thank you gifts for the gals I went to every second hand store in our area and bought China tea cup and saucer sets. I also got little succulent plants and the plan was that they could take a succulent and put it in the tea cup to take home. Of course I had to decorate the succulents and make them prettier. I made little tags using the Taylor Made Tags Dies. I used Blushing Bride and Basic White cardstock that I stamped on with Basic Gray ink. I used the All For Baby Stamp and the Plentiful Plants Stamp. I also added some Resin Heart Embellishments to the tags. These are now retired but they were perfect for these tags. I also tied some ribbon around the pot to add a bow to the plants. I used the Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon that is also retired. Unfortunately that was the only Blushing Bride Ribbon that I had. I used some white baker's twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack to tie the tags on to the ribbon on the plants. I am thrilled with how they turned out. Here are a few pictures. First the tags by themselves, then tied on the plant and then the tray of plants waiting to go home with the guests.
Thanks again for stopping by.
Stay well and keep creating!
