Welcome Baby Card

Here is a quick Welcome Baby Card...

Welcome Baby Card
GEEZZZ, where has the week gone???  It has been a tad above normal craziness at my house this week!  So sorry about not posting all week but here's a little card I did for a family friend.

First, I gotta talk about that adorable ribbon!!!  So, while I was out running other errands I decided to stop in at Hobby Lobby (that place just pulls me in I swear!!!!) just to see if they had anything I couldn't live without for this baby card I knew I was going to make later that evening.  Well don't you know I came across this row of, I'll just call it 'alpha ribbon'.  It has been there for as long as I can remember but I have just never felt the need to buy it, UNITL that day!!  The baby's name is Jack so I grabbed the "J" and headed home!

This card is assembled on a white card based.  I used the brown/white/blue polka dot paper from the paper studio, white rick rack, blue card stock from my scrap stash, the piece that the letters are attached to I grabbed a metallic gel pen and drew some lines on it.  It looked to plain before!  Anyway, for the white card stock behind the sentiment piece, I embossed it with the cuttlebug embossing folder: spots and dots.  I tied my new ribbon in a cute little bow, attached with glue dots and waalaa!  I really like how it turned out.  I may find myself  'collecting' the entire alphabet because now ideas are just flying through my mind!!!

Thank you for stopping by,
Shabby Jo
