Bevvy of Booties....

Hi All.

Some time back I was asked to make a baby boy card for one of the doctors at work who was about to become and Aunty. I was also HANGING out to try and make the booties I had seen around blog land with the Stocking Punch. I took my inspiration from here and here. Given that I wanted to give her a choice, I made a softer card and one a bit bolder.

The one inspired by Jackie Topa turned out like this....

Given that I had used the "Hello Baby" sentiment on the other card, I changed it to the "Welcome Baby" and used the wee nappy pin to make a patterned piece for the booties to sit on.

The bolder one I used Pacific Point.....a colour that I very rarely use, but was pleasantly surprised with the way it came up.

I am a sucker for dry embossing and the folders really for a work out here.....

She loved both but took the softer one.

Thanks for dropping by again.

I love these Lynda. I just saw these cute little booties on a blog the other day. What a great way to use the Christmas Socking punch!!! I haven't used mine yet, might need to pull it out soon and use it for myself once "little cashew" arrives!
