While surfing through several of my favorite blogs, I discovered this precious baby girl card & tag set on the Lily Bean Paperie blog. I highly recommend stopping by for a visit. You will truly be inspired. I would like to send out big thank you to Melissa for sharing today’s inspiration.
Melissa used the Knit Bits & Purls Of Wisdom Stamp Sets from Papertrey Ink which really gives this precious set a cozy homespun look and feel. On the sweater card, she used the Shape Up Series: Sweater die.
Melissa created the tag using the In Stitches die and stamped the sentiments and images using Classic Kraft, Hibiscus Burst, and Sweet Blush. The flower at the bottom is from the Stitched Sentiments set.
I just love the soft vintage look of the Melissa Frances Crepe paper trim. She attached the tag to a small glassine bag that fits right inside the Sweater card. How perfect to include a gift card to their favorite baby store.
The card was cut using Fine Linen cardstock and the new Sweet Blush Polka Dot paper.
Melissa used the Knit Bits stamp and Sweet Blush ink over the patterned paper to create the sweet little sweater. Vintage trim down the center as well as Sweet Blush and Vintage Cream buttons add more detail as well as a Vintage Cream felt heart cut using the Heart Prints die collection. This card couldn’t be any cuter. This set is going in the baby album with all the other special mementos. It’s obvious that there was a lot of love put into this card.
Melissa stamped a sentiment from the Purls of Wisdom stamp set down the fold using Classic Kraft ink, hearts across the bottom from the Knit Bits stamp set using Hibiscus Burst ink, and secured the bundle together using Vintage Cream Saddle Stitch ribbon.
Imagining this gift card and tag at a baby shower. Forget the gift! The tag and card are forever keepsakes! The girls are going to be talking about this set for years. 🙂
My hope for you is to be fearless when it comes to your creativity, to try new things and most important to have fun.
Thanks for visiting and have a very creative day.
