_DSC5758There's a new baby on the way here at Ellison, what better time to introduce our New Baby dies!

One of our wonderful designers Samantha Barnett is off on maternity next week and we are all very exited, so I thought she may like a card to go with all the gifts.

The dies I am using today are.....

  • Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 13PK - New Baby by Debi Potter (661704)
  • Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 79PK - Just a Note Alphabet by Jen Long (660111)
  • Sizzix Framelits Die Set 5PK - Stars (657567)

Here's how we made it..... the card, not the baby!

FotorCreated1I started by die-cutting the star aperture into a rectangle of yellow card. I left the die in place and used it as a template to mark out some faux stitching using my trusty pattern makers wheel. Next, I die-cut the babygro, star and hanger followed by the letters to form the legend 'oh Boy!' die-cut from silver card.

After attaching the letters to a strip of blue card I trimmed one end into a chevron before adding more faux stitching.

_DSC5758I rounded off the corners of the yellow rectangle with a punch and mounted it onto the base card using adhesive foam pads before attaching the babygro followed by the banner. I added a couple of die-cut stars for good measure and topped it all off with some adhesive gems.

Good luck to Sam and Dan, and get some sleep while you can!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
