Oh, Baby!

The "Best of Brides & Babies" stamp set is adorable!  I created this card for our monthly Card Class and it was a HIT!  I used the Hearts Collection Frameltis to cut the opening in the front of the card. I saved the heart cut out and stamped the image on the back side, colored it in and mounted it through the the "heart window" for perfect placement.  I stamped the image again on scrap designer paper and cut out the onesie and adhered it to the original stamped image. Whew! That sounds like a lot but it was EASY!  The tags were created using the That's the Ticket stamp set on the same coordinating designer paper.  The Ticket Duo punch makes them easy to punch out.  I used a 1/16" hand held punch (now retired but the paper piercing tool will work) to make two holes in the tickets and then I wove the safety pin, from the Vintage Trinkets, through them.  They are mounted on a dimensional.  I sponged the edges of the entire card and the inside of the heart to add to the aged appearance of the designer paper.
