Oh, Baby!

Vintage baby images are just the sweetest!  Well, some are a little scary, but not these from Nicecrane Designs.  And it looks like I have a bare hiney again!  I have to say one of the emails I most look forward to is an email from Ignacio showing all his new images.  What a fun "job" it is to showcase these cuties!

Oh, I have to tell you about the paper I found at Staples. I've been looking for some gold and silver paper that I really like.  This is it!   It comes 8 1/2 x 11 in silver and gold.  There are colors, as well, but I was interested in the metallics.  

I used circle dies, my silhouette, and hole punch to create gold circles for these cards.  

I'm sure I could have done it all with the Silhouette, but what can I say?  I like variety!  Then I found that I really liked the dots random looking in placement and in size, rather than in typical alternating polka dot rows.  (Not that I don't like those, too - I tend to love polkas!)

I love the vellum bands on these!  I printed the sentiments centered horizontally on of a piece of 8 1/2  x 11 vellum, which gave me plenty of room to wrap it around the card.  "Airing my views" came directly from this image - that's what it says (very tiny) under her.   I thought that was perfect for a thank you card.  So this is the "view" I printed for the inside:

You can find the "Born to be Wild" set (along with LOTS of others) at Nicecrane Designs.

Have a wonderful week!
