Make It Monday #145

As promised, I’m sharing the card sets I made for my Circle of Friends (a group of women I’ve known for over 35 years). I’m reposting for Papertrey’s Make It Monday #145 Al la Carte.

Gift Set 001c

Gift Set 002Aren’t the onesies cute? My family joked that I was setting up a nursery. I left the cards blank so the girls could fill them out and send as a congrats card, but I can see this used as an adorable baby shower invite as well.

The set included a birthday card and matching envelopes. Danielle Flanders made a really cute boxed set of cards using Papertrey’s plastic containers¬†here. Great idea! I saved the packaging from Papertrey stamp sets I’ve ordered in the past. It fit the cards perfectly. With a little more time, I could probably fit another two cards in each box…say, a wedding and just-a-note card?

Here’s a close-up of the onesies:

I could make these all day! Again, just using little bits and pieces to dress them up.

Using the onesie die from Papertrey, I cut the card base onesie and then another in whatever paper I was using for the top. Paper piecing tip: If you cut your decorative onesie in half, you have a top and a bottom that you can mix and match on two different cards. The little raised dot embellishments are made with Liquid Pearls. Also used tiny snaps, tiny buttons, flowers, lace, trim, ribbon and border dies. All rubber stamping and animals are from Papertrey stamp and die sets: Bitty Baby Blessings and Sweet Baby.

I finished the box off with a wrap-around sleeve and then added Everyday Photo Finishers. I love how the set turned out. So much so that I made two of every card so I could keep one. I think I need help.

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Have a very merry Christmas!


Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

Hello bloggers. This month’s challenge at PTI is to use embroidery floss. ¬†I’m happy to share my little card with you all.
Baby Card
Stamps are from Bitty Baby Blessings. Aren’t they so sweet? The cardstock was really thick so I used a paper piercer to pierce the holes and then ran a backstitch.
