Burlap Letters on a Happy Baby Card

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you had a lovely weekend and your week is off to a great start.  I have another card for you that I’m very proud of.  Take a look:

Who else has a weakness for baby cards?  They’re always so sweet and adorable…I could probably make a baby card every day.  Anyway, the inspiration for this one came from some awesome burlap letter stickers I found in the “Sold As Is” box at Michael’s.  I loved the their texture so much, I couldn’t pass them up.  I started this card by making a frame for “baby” using my Spellbinders Labels 18, Large Ovals, and Big Scalloped Ovals dies.  Some layering, some stitching, some foam dots, and I had what I was going for.  I didn’t want to take any attention away from those lovely letters, so I kept the rest of the card pretty simple with coordinating papers, simple layers, a little more stitching, and a corner punch.  I did emboss the brown layer for a little more visual interest, and of course ribbon!  Everything came together so nicely, I just held the card and stared at it for a bit.

I loved this card so much, I had to make a coordinating envelope!

In addition to lining the envelope, I used the same striped paper on the outside of the flap.  I went all out for this one!

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!

    Pure card perfection ! I love all the wonderful use of texture, and the way you framed the letters. The twine is the perfect accent to the subtle patterned paper. You have such talent!

    Beautiful card, Melody! It’s so pretty it would be hard to give away to someone. 🙂 Great job – the layers and texture are wonderful together. Love it!

    Oooooh yeah, this one’s especially special, and if my lovely friend Mira has a boy in a couple weeks (they don’t know the sex of their baby), I’d love to give this card to her. Oh, and don’t think I’m missing the mad photography skillz in this post – seriously great!
