Sassy Baby's First Steps

The Sassy Gals over at Sassy Cheryl's wants us to make a baby gift card holder this week.  Well Cheryl, obliged by putting some new baby images in her shop for us to choose from.  This is the one that caught my heart this week.  I am going to enter him in Sassy Cheryl's Color Me Challenge this week too.  I get two for one that way.  I have to admit that I also bought the new Special Delivery Stork Boy stamp too.  Actually it rebounded from my heart straight into my shopping cart.  Don't know how that happened.

I decided to make him a blonde with mismatched boots for fun.  I know they should have been a shade of brown or tan, but I wasn't in a tan or brown mood.  I used my Copics to color him with.  He looks like he is playing airplane and pretending to fly, so I used some dp  from DCWV the Nana's Kids collection.  It says Zoom Zoom Zoom, cardstock is SU and I bought the  scalloped card base.  Stars are punched with a  CM punch and popped them up with foam dots.  I cut some pieces of colored wire and wrapped them around a pointy thingey and attached them to the star burst with glue dots.  I used Spellbinders Circle and Label 3 to cut out the digi and mats.   There is a pocket on the inside to hold the gift card.

I know you are probably stroking out about using wires on a baby card. The Mom in me didn't want the wires on a baby card, but the designer in me said they have to stay!  So I will send this card with a proper warning about the wires, ha ha.

I made a little pocket on the inside with some paper and ribbon.  It looks kind of plain, but I will put appropriate embellishments and sentiments when I decide the final purpose of the card.  I wanted to put the sentiment "Plane Fare".  I still may, you never know.......

Have a good one, Sassettes and come join in the fun.  You may win a digi for your efforts!


  1. I agree with you, no brown boots for a baby! Love this card and you did a wonderful job coloring it.

  2. Awww man, that is SUPER CUTE!!!

  3. Super cute Linda!!! Mis-matched boots are perfect! I say leave the wires, the kid shouldn't be playing with a master piece anyway!! Lol ~jeni :)

  5. Oh Linda, I love your take on this image. LOL over the Mom vs Crafter debate. I can see you jumping from one side of the room to the other, facing off with yourself. Great card.

  6. Awh, Linda...another terrific creation! Perfect DP and sentiment and then the card inside-so clever!
