I just found out my cousin is welcoming his second little boy to this world in a few days. I think it's wonderful, the age difference between his two boys will be very close to the gap in my boys! :) This card really reminds me of those times when my boys were little!
Here is the card I made for my cousin and his wife:
The card base is 4 1/2" x 5". I grabbed the lace-up card base from New Arrival and hid three sides on my Gypsy to get the blue polka-dot base that laces on only one long side. I laced it with a sheer white ribbon and 1/8" satin blue ribbon after I tied the bow with my Bow Easy. The oval is also on the New Arrival cart.
I love these little feet from New Arrival, I cut them at 1" in generic white cardstock. I inked the edges and popped them up on some pop-dots. I covered them in some Studio G glitter glue for a little sparkle. I also added the glitter glue to the oval frame around the pencil drawing of the boys.
Here is a close-up of the bow. I placed a simple square button on the top.
I created this cute little banner for my sentiment. The stamp is from Scrappy Moms. Again, I inked the edges with some blue ink and a finger tip sponge dauber.
I inked the inside too and added two more little (adorable) feet! :)
I adore the image I used. I drew this back when my youngest was a newborn. I don't draw often anymore but I used to when I was in college. This one took me some time! I was using a photo as my reference, the picture was taken when my now six-year-old was 4 days old. :)
I scanned this image and printed it on glossy photo paper for this card.
