Sweet Little Baby
As you can see, I didn't make the boy and girl design exactly the same. I made the girl one with a little more detail. That's just kindof how girls are, huh? Simple boys...complicated girls. Anyway...I used the coordinating die cuts with this stamp set as I have with every other card. Die-cuts to the rescue! I just recently bought this set even though it is an older PTI set. I have always wanted it, but never ended up by getting it. I can't tell you how many times it has been in my "cart" but always gets removed.
The papers for both cards are from a super old My Mind's Eye slab that I got on clearance years ago at Hobby Lobby. I don't know what I will do when the papers are all gone! I hadn't printed out any more sketches, so I just used a simple design. The little elephant was diecut out of white, but then I paper pieced it with coordinating paper so that I didn't have to color it.
The baby boy card is pretty simple, but I think it is cute. I used copic markers to color the sailboat since it was small. I was tempted to paper piece this as well, but I think the pattern would have been lost in the small spaces.
