the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers and adjusted the measurements to accommodate an 8.5" x 5.5" piece of cardstock for the base - 2 1/8" for the large sections and just over an inch for the small sections. I scored all the folds, cut out the two sections and trimmed decorative paper to fit the panels - the grungy plum for the three large sections and bright yellow for the four little sections. I layered a piece of waxed fabric (3.5" square) over yellow and then onto plum cardstock and stitched all the way around incorporating two lengths of seam binding in the process using bright green thread. After the stitching, I tied the seam binding pieces together using a double knot and added a colour printed greeting punched with the Modern Label punch (SU) using 3D foam tape. I really love how it came together and the wonderful punch of colour provided by the yellow cardstock and decorative paper. It is off to my partner in tomorrow's mail!!

I cut the original panel in two and die cut the bottom edge with a thin wavy die. I trimmed the other edges just a little bit so they would fit nicely on my green card fronts. I stamped the baby saying (SU) on the tags provided in the kit and added a section of ribbon which was also included. I attached the tag using 3D foam tape and added some faux stitching along the wavy edge using a white gel pen. It was just as easy to make them portrait as landscape.
Love making cards - baby ones are fun!!
These cards are the last in a series I started a couple of months ago. You can check the others out here and here. The supplies were still sitting on my desk.!!
For these cards I embossed the card fronts, added the decorative paper in several different patterns and added the embossed flowers as my main elements. Three of them have little circular greetings on the card and the other has a colour printed greeting.
It was fun to make these cards and I was happy to be able to make good use of the supplies I had at hand.
I made a few more cards for the baby gift. You can check them out here.
This baby card has an embossed pink card front, two pieces of decorative paper, a layered stamped image and a little border punched laser printed greeting to which I added some white thread. It all came together fairly quickly as some of the supplies were already sitting on my desk.
