Guest Designer part 2

Welcome back for day 2 of my Guest Designer Spotlight at Meljen's Designs.  This is the project I have for you this week.

When I saw the image Stuffed Elephant, I thought it would be adorable paper pieced for a baby card.  I couldn't decide if it should be a card for a boy or a girl so I made both.  I used the Itsy Bitsy Baby Boy and Girl paper pads from K&Company.  The lace trim was white, but I used dye ink pads to color it.  I wiped the ink pad on my non-stick craft sheet and misted it with some water.  I laid the lace trim in the ink and patted it with a paper towel.  I like the uneven color I got using this method.  I even dusted off my sewing machine and added some stiching on all of the layers. 

Cards measure 4.5" x 4.5"
ribbon and lace trim from my stash

These cards are utterly adorable! I often have a hard time making baby cards so it is great to see some successfully cute ones!
