Sizzix-Doodlebug Framelits Baby Card

Hello Peeps!! I hope your day is going well. Just popping in to show you a baby card I created using Sizzix-Doodlebug Design Framelits Die Cutting Template and Clear Acrylic Stamps Baby Boy set. I think the images are adorable and can be used on a girl card as well as a boy. In fact, I chose to make a tag and card set for a baby girl.

I started by die cutting and stamping two giraffes. I then colored them in using the Copic markers below.

Next I printed out my sentiment on an 8 1/2" by 11" piece of white card stock. If I don't have the right sentiment stamp, I will often print one out on a piece of card stock. I used MS Word and estimated where I wanted the sentiment to go. I then cut out the card front and rounded the edges. My next step was to layer a piece of herringbone embossed paper, the doily, the scallop die cut and one giraffe onto the front. The last piece of the puzzle was to add the hearts. I then thought it needed a little something more so I used diamond Stickles to kick them up a notch.

Isn't it cute? My twelve year old daughter told me I should have only used one exclamation point on the sentiment. "It is not proper grammar Mom." Sigh. She is right but I think it looks adorable.

I then die cut a tag, 3 hearts and a banner out of white paper. I layered the banner over the tag, adhered the giraffe using foam tape over the banner and then adhered the three hearts. Like the card, I used diamond Stickles to add a little something more.

That is all for today. I hope this inspires you to create your own baby set. Have a great day!!
