Welcome Baby

In my last post, I mentioned another sweet baby boy that our family welcomed with love last fall. That's four great nephews, for anyone that's keeping count! And, they truly are great! I love spending time with these little guys and watching them grow. Anyway, I've been remiss in posting the card I created for Luke. Here it is:

I used the Onesie4baby  stamp set from The Stamps of Life by Stephanie Bernard.  i stamped the image twice -- once on the monkey paper and once on the solid orange. After fussy cutting the entire onesie image from the pattern paper, I cut the orange details and layered them on top. This stamp set comes with several different icons that you can use to decorate your onesie but I really wanted to use this monkey paper. As luck would have it, my choice was serendipitous since my niece decorated the nursery with jungle animals that included monkeys.

Below is a close-up of the onesie. You can see that I adhered it to the card using foam adhesive and used gems for eyes.

Oh, that's darling, Linda! I love how you perfectly paper pieced the onsie. What fun you could have with that set! That's great how it worked out with the nursery. This is just ideal for a baby boy!

My October baby couldn't decide which he liked better--this or his Halloween card. When asked to choose, it rendered him speechless! ;)
