Creative Challenge - Baby!


It doesn't take much to get me thinking babies these days - our wee one is kicking regularly now and I'm still in the "delighted to feel him - not jammed under my ribs" stage, so it's lovely. Oh yeah, did I mention we're having a boy?! We're so excited!

So this month's My Favorite Things Creative Challenge was perfect for me! I had this idea right away, for a clean and simple thank you card for baby gifts. This design has lots of pop, but can be quickly replicated.



I did try using a designer paper layer, but in the end it looked best with crisp white and bold cardstock. The sentiment was created using the By the Letters Die-namics. The flag was cut from a Mix and Match Banner Die-namics and the little felt onesie is from the Notched Tag Die-namics. A pierced border finishes it all off.


The inside is nice and crisp too. The sentiment is from Just my Type.

Here are the Die-namics I've used today:
