The Baby Girl Announcement card is created using a 5" x 4-1/4" basic card size (Stampin' Up has them with envelopes) and a variety of 12" x 12" decorative papers that I found at my local craft store (on sale to boot!). I kept this quick and simple, and very economical!
Also used, is the "Bundle of Joy" stamp from Clear Expressions Oh Baby Stamp Set with Night Sky chalk ink (Southwest color set) from Versa Magic. The rattle panel was also enhanced with the same color chalk ink and applied raised by using 1/16" dimensional adhesive foam dots. The Oodles of Doodles Crochet Rattle is attached with a few hand-stitches tied off on the back, so that each recipient of the card can detach it if they'd like to, to apply to their scrapbooking page, baby frame or for any other crafting use. And with a touch of ribbon to make the bow appear to be tied to it, it was put together in a jiffy!
There's also a few photos of one of my favorite paper crafting projects, the Pursvelope for baby girls that's just wide enough to carry a CD case inside. So, whether it's a newborns coming home photos, the family gathering of candidly taken photos, or personal moments spent with baby -- putting your special memories on CD will bring out your creativity and help you present your photos in an entertaining display! This is an exclusive pattern design of Deedle-dee Doodles Oodles Of Doodles Paper Crafts.
