Papertrey Ink. January Blog Hop - Shabby Baby Onesie Card

This month we were supposed to play with a stamp set that hasn’t seen any love or perhaps no love in a while. I absolutely LOVE Just the Ticket set so I decided to pair it with an older set I haven’t used as much, Bitty Baby Blessings.

The bottom of the card is stamped with another older favourite, BB: Hearts. I scored two lines 1/4” apart above this area as guidelines for the Scor-Tape and glitter application. Then I added half a doily above that. The word baby was cut from a larger sentiment, stamped in brighter pink ink and glittered using a glue pen. I used the bunny from the baby set to add a baby image to one of the tickets since I’d already used the ducky then I threaded all of the tickets on the twine. Then I added the flower corner and the pearls to the corners and as the onesie snaps. I will write in the name and date when I find out who I’m giving it to.

Wouldn’t this make a fabulous birth announcement with a photo of the baby in place of the onesie? Or a generic photo of baby feet or hands?

Enjoy, Rebecca

Lots I like on this card. The flowers and pearls, the little images on the tickets, the way the tickets are hanging on the ribbon, the colors and the fact that you can have this card in your stash all ready for a sweet little baby girl to be born!

What a sweet card. Love the way you used the tickets on the bottom and the doily makes it really spot on.

This card is so pretty. After marvelling at this adorable creation, I bet you wonder what has taken you so long to really love this set up. Just gorgeous! I love all the care you've taken with this card too..even down to photographing it. Just perfect.

Oh. My. Goodness. This is absolutely the cutest and most gorgeous baby card! Here's what I LOVE about this.....those tickets hanging off the twine like a banner (FAB idea BTW), those tiny images stamped on the tickets, the tiny roses in the corner, and your perfectly placed pearls. If I only had these sets, I'd CASE this immediately!!
