Babies, Babies, Babies…

One of my coworkers is about to have a baby (girl) and another colleague just became a first time grandpapa. Here are the cards that I made to go along with a little gift I gave them today:
Jen'sbaby#1
Here’s the inside of the dress:
Jen'sbaby#2
I used Gina K. 10 lb. cardstock as my card base. I ran a panel of Pink Pirouette through a Texturz plate and rounded the corners. I made the dress using a template from Stampendous and enlarged it a little. I cut that out on white cardstock and pink gingham patterned paper. I used a scallop Quickutz and created a little bib for the dress from the same patterned paper. I added some sponging on the edge of the dress, a few retired S-U buttons and the flower from A Little Bird Told Me on the bottom of the dress, which I coloured and added glitter to. On the inside of the card, I used the Congratulations stamp from the retiring Hugs & Wishes set. On the inside of the dress, I used my S-U scallop punch and my 1/16th handheld punch. I stamped the sentiment from the new Teent Tiny Wishes set. I futzed with card a lot, but I’m happy with the way it turned out in the end.
Here’s the boy card:
Mike'sbaby
I used Brocade Blue as my card base and added some very old S-U patterned paper. I used the Boatloads of Love set that is retiring at the end of the month. I watercoloured it and added some Liquid Applique (I love that stuff) to the puffs of smoke. I layered it with some Certainly Celery and Riding Hood Red. I added the sentiment (from a retired set) and punched it with circle punches. I finished it off with brads and ribbon.
