Something about babies and polka dots - just make me smile! Here is a sweet little pair of booties I CASEd from Nichole Heady of Papertrey Ink. Nichole's darling color combo sealed the deal when I was making this buying decision : )
I have been in bootie heaven lately but I will share more about that in my post later this week. Today I want to mainly focus on my card. I started with a white card base by PTI. I embossed just the top portion of a slightly smaller card face using the Large Polka Dot embossing folder by SU. Next I scored four lines using my Scor Pal - creating a little frame for my aqua mist polka dot ribbon by American Crafts. Now it gets really fun!
Is that itty bitty little bow adorable or what!? My first ever purchase from Mamma Elephant - the Dainty Bow and Hello Script dies! I cut both from Aqua Mist felt by PTI
Because of the three layers of the bow and the resulting thickness I decided to beef up my felt "hello" die cut by cutting two of the same die from my white cs. The added thickness really makes it stand out nicely and I feel the felt adds to the softness of this hello baby card! : )
I tell you - these booties are addicting... and I hope I never recover! Please stop back later this week because I will show you a baby bootie corsage I created for a special friend : )
Have a wonderful day!
