Sweet Baby Girl

Good morning!  This is THE very first card I made when my Lots of Letters set arrived! I was so eager after designing this long border to use it as framework for my letters, looks cool and goes fast!


Love stamping the letters off center, up down and all around, no need to worry about centering!

Start with a 4 x 5 1/4" Pure Luxury White mat.
Stamp the long border in Memento Angel Pink in the center.
Now re-ink and stamp above and then re-ink and stamp below.  Now you have this cool stacked border and frames for all your letters.
TIP:  Count the number of letters in each word of your greetings before you start stamping to figure out placement.   This border is 6 squares long so if you have an odd number you can add an embellishment to the last space OR begin the next word at the other end of the next row to balance the spaces.
Stamp "sweet" and girl" centered (with Memento Rose Bud ink,) then add some whimsy going up and down with the "baby" part.
Tie some stitched ribbon to a white safety pin and adhere it with a glue dot, as well as the button,  for  simple babyish embellishments.
Round opposite corners to match the shapes in the border with a small corner rounder punch and mat on a corner punched Pure Luxury Passionate Pink base.

Change to seasonal colors and this design could be an easy to mass produce Christmas card, just swap out the pin for a stamped or punched snowflake!

Happy Saturday!

That is so cute. Glad I ordered the set as there are numerous possibilities for that border. And, love the alphabet as that was a needed item indeed for making personalized cards. Otherwise I had to use a computer which works, but this is a great option. And, my handwriting is awful!
