Happy Monday all! Well, today I am going to share with you a gift set that I made for a friend who recently had a baby. He was a preemie and spent some time in the NICU but is home now and making his family very happy! The products I used are not all Stampin' Up! for this particular project because I wanted to use the Graphic 45 Baby to Bride collection. Although I will tell you, my embellishments ARE Stampin' Up! - ya know, I can't help myself!! So, first I altered a paper mache box that I filled with little baby onesies. Lots of ribbon and pearls, and sponging because I really wanted that vintage feel for this project. All of the paper used on the box is from the Graphic 45 Baby to Bride paper line and I have to tell you, I really love it! I covered every side and the bottom of the box with coordinating paper and added flowers and ribbon to the top as well as ribbon to each side. There are small half pearls added to the flowers that came from my Pretties Kit. The card is also made with a lot of the Graphic 45 line, but there are lots of Stampin' Up! items as well. The base of the card is Blush Blossom card stock, then layered with G45 dp. I used my Corner Rounder to soften the card and added a row of scallops using the Blush Blossom card stock. I made the scallops using my Slit Punch, paper pierced holes in the scallops, and added small half pearls from my Pretties Kit. The image is stamped on Naturals Ivory card stock in Brown Stazon, and is from the Stamp Set Bundled in Love. I then stamped the same image on a piece of the G45 dp and cut it out to paper piece. The bunny tail is from the end of a qtip, I just pulled it off and adhered it with a mini glue dot. The sentiment is also from the Bundled in Love stamp set and is stamped on Blush Blossom card stock in Mellow Moss Classic Stampin' Ink. Then, I added a piece of the Silver Hodgepodge Hardware (love it!). I double faux stitched around the outside of the card and then single faux stitched around the inside layers. Lastly, I added two jumbo pewter eyelets and threaded some lace from my stash through them (sorry, don't remember who makes this!) I know she has received this already so I feel safe in sharing - LOL! I really hope she enjoys this small gift from me and is spending wonderful time with her little miracle now that he is home! And yes, as the title of my post says, I did submit this as a DT project but was not chosen! But, I am okay with it because I loved the project and hey, you can't make them all, right??!! Have a wonderful day and tomorrow I will be back with a really cute project - yep, all Stampin' Up!
