Sweet Baby: LOL2 Patternmaking

Sweet single layer baby card with Lots of Letters 2, I just love gray with pink and white! One set, one color cardstock and two pads only! I couldn't decide if this is one I should do a video for, since I have already shared another card stamping this border. (Thoughts?  Self explantory?)  It's an easy single layer design that is accented by the dashed line from the set like faux stitching. Ink looks subtle on the pastel card stock for a soft look, but really pops on the brighter ones. I stamped my flowers first, added the two step elements like the dotted ring to the centers and the small flowers and dots in between next, and finally the stitching.  It works out perfectly to have a space at one end of the card when you stamp three borders so you can create a vertical greeting with the letters off to the side. 

TIP:  For a vertical greeting, spend a few seconds looking at the space to make sure you'll have room for the number of letters in your greeting, and then work your way UP form the bottom, finishing with the first letter, so you don't end up having a big gap down below.  If you prefer to stamp form the top, and do have extra space that needs filler, keep stamping the letters the same distance apart to be consistent but then add a button or one of the small stamp elements.
