Oh Baby!

Just a quick post tonight to share a baby card and matching gift bag. This set was very special because it was made to welcome my new great nephew into the world.

Here's a close-up of the card. Notice the zigzag stitch at the top of the orange layer. That was made with my new Janome Sew Mini that my mother gave me for my birthday.

As much as I wanted a sewing machine, I have to admit that I was a little intimidated about taking it out of the box. As I was reading the directions, Sal came into the room and pretty much took over threading it. Apparently he knows how to use a sewing machine from years of watching his grandmother do so. Who knew that after 21 years of marriage, I would uncover this hidden talent!

This card was cased from the fabulous Carla Peicheff. You can see her fabulous original here: http://moralia.wordpress.com/2009/05/29/a-few-baby-cards/. While you're on Carla's blog, take a look at some of her other projects. Her work is stunning and a constant source of inspiration to me.

Card Ingredients: Stampin' Up! card stock; DCWV patterned paper (Nan's Nursery Baby Boy); Making Memories ribbon (Passport); Stampin' Up! border punch (Scallop Edge); Making Memories stickers (Tiny Alphas); Signo pen (white); Cricut (Graphically Speaking).

Bag Ingredients: Michael's gift bag; DCWV patterned paper (Nana's Nursery Baby Boy); Fiskars border punch (Threading Water); Inkadinkadoo stamps (Baby Boy); Versa Mark ink; Stamp 'n Stuff embossing powder (detail white).
