Baby Wonderful Card

Yeah, yeah, I know there have been alot of baby cards on my blog lately. What can I say, my friends are fertile! I tried to abstain from adding ribbon, since this is for a boy, but a few buttons won't hurt right?

Card base 4.25 x 5.5"
Blue background 4.125 x 5.375 "
Yellow 3 x 4 "
Green 4.25 x 1.75"

Ink all papers including the card base with black ink.
Next, put your paperclip on, then glue stick the paper layers together - but don't glue down the blue onto the card yet. Sew through the paper on the left side of baby. Now it's safe to glue down the blue background. This will hide your stitching in between the layers of the card - you won't see ugly bobbin threads when you open it up. Next, apply rub on 'baby' letters, add stickers and buttons.

You have to check out this darling little paperclip - it came from Doodlebug Design - it's a little epoxy turtle - so cute!
