When Kim and her husband learned they were going to have their first baby, they were ecstatic! When they found out they were having twins, they were still ecstatic (but a tiny bit of panic set in). As soon as they were resigned to the fact that they will simply have to buy two of everything, the REALLY BIG NEWS came – they are having one boy and one girl. Here’s a card I made for Kim using this week’s Freshly Made Sketches: And here’s this week’s sketch by Jen Brum:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- A Little Ric-Rac. I’ve been trying to use my Tasteful Trim Bigz L die for some time now. This baby card gave me the perfect excuse to pair the ric-rac with the images in the Baby Tees Jumbo Wheel. I cropped the little strips of card stock to the right of the onesies with this die. They give a little action to the strips and add lots of color.
- Balance of Color. The boy onesie is Soft Sky with a So Saffron star. The coordinating ric-rac features two strips of So Saffron and one of Soft Sky. The same balance concept is used with the girl’s onsie. I repeated these colors in the sentiments and added Candy Dots to help balance the color on this card.
- Baby Tees. I really love these little onesies and use them frequently. I don’t use my wheels (although learning to use them is on my bucket list), but I cut this stamp off the wheel and mounted the tees on clear mount cling foam so I could use them as a traditional stamp.
