Hello Baby Cakes - GCA133
Hello all!!! We had a gorgeous day here in Michigan, but we are also under a tornado watch! That must mean that spring is here!
Here's another baby sample for this week. I made this on Sunday with the leftovers from the cards I made the grandkids. Guess I was having too much fun with the quilting technique!!
With these squares I just randomly, in some order, put them together!! Make sense? Once I had the pattern I wanted, I went around each square with my white gel pen and did the faux stitching. Doesn't show up too much after I embossed it with the Elegant Lines ebf. Backed it with a Crumb Cake layer.
The sentiment and white/pear scallop oval come from the Nursery Suites Quick Accents. I used my oval scallop from the Movers & Shapers set and then backed that with a Whisper White decorative label punch. The overall set is up on very thick dimensionals. Then, I used dimensionals under the pear scallop layer and one more under the sentiment.
The baby jammies is from the Simple Life level 1 hostess set out of the Occasions mini. I used paper piecing by stamping first on WW in Brown staz on and then again onto the dsp. The heart is punched from the owl punch and popped up with a tiny dimensional. A mini library clip with the new WW baker's twine finishes that off.
The scrunched ribbon is using the Crumb Cake seam binding and then pulling a thread from the middle of it. I've tried to do this many times and usually break the thread I'm pulling on! But this time it worked perfectly and I am very happy with the end result.
The finished size of this card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and has a WW card base.
