I have the privilege of sharing three cards I made using the super cute new Baby's Bib Die-namics. This Die-namics cut an adorable bib complete with stitching detail that is sure to become the centerpiece of many cards, scrapbook pages, and baby gifts! I'll start with the "Congratulations" baby card suitable for a boy or girl.
For this card I cut the bib from Sweet Tooth felt. I used the duck from the Oh Baby Die-namics for the cut-out in the center of the bib. I then backed it with a second bib cut from card stock for stability. The Banana Split felt duck complete with a Sno Cone felt eye was glued into the negative space of the Sweet Tooth bib. I finished the bib off with a canvas badge from my stash. Here is a closer look.
A star from Lisa Johnson Designs Beautiful Baby was stamped in Lemon Drop ink on the badge. The Blueprints 13 Die-namics was used for the stitched card front. The sentiment from Beautiful Baby was stamped in Chocolate Brown ink and flanked by stars from the same set stamped in Banana Split ink. Here is the inside of the card.
I sponged Banana Split ink through the Starry Night stencil as a backdrop for a second sentiment from Beautiful Baby. Don't you love this font combination? Here are the MFT products I used on this card.
My second card is definitely for a little baby boy :)
For this card I used the Blueprints 14 Die-namics for the stitched front panel and the dotted detail on the white panel. Stars from Beautiful Baby were stamped on that panel prior to cutting with the dotted Die-namics. I used the Cloudy Day stencil to emboss the Kraft panel, too. And I stamped the Star Background on the blue card stock in coordinating ink prior to cutting with the Baby's Bib Die-namics.
Here is the inside of this card.
I used the stitched circle that I cut from the bib for a second sentiment on the inside. Here are the MFT products I used on this card.
And my last card is perfect for a new baby girl.
I used the Blueprints 14 Die-namics again, but this time put the pieces together on a larger card. The final size of this card is approximately 5" x 6". The rattle from Beautiful Baby was stamped in Pink Lemonade ink on Pink Lemonade card stock. Here is a close-up.
I would normally use the metal plate in my die cut machine to get the little dots of the scallop to pop out cleanly. I didn't use the shim so the cut outs would stay in their position (they could still easily be poked out though). Here is the inside of this card.
The elephants were stamped in Pink Lemonade ink with a sentiment in Steel Grey ink. Here are the MFT products I used on this card.
