Topstitch Baby cards

Happy Thursday! I'm back to share some more goodies with you today . . .I created two baby cards using Topstitch paper, and the Love You Forever stamp set.On this card, I paired the little birdie from Love You Forever (C1398) with the Congratulations sentiment from Forever In Love (B1345) ( it's a great little set of sentiments and flowers. (You'll be seeing more from me with this set soon!)

TIP: I was running low on ribbon, and I didn't have quite enough to make a bow. Instead, I folded the ribbon over, in the "shape" of a bow, and used a piece of twine to tie the center together. I kind of like the way it looks!
And on this card, using stamps from Love You Forever, I got crazy with the distressing. I used my little scissors, and my fingernail to really rough up the edges of this patterned paper.
TIP: No brads handy? Use the period from an alphabet set, to stamp faux brads in the corners. (I used Friendship Alpha small -C1401- to do mine.)
Thanks for stopping by to see me today! I hope you had a terrific Easter week! We are Spring Breakin' it up around my house. We've had a couple playdates, and yesterday we went to paint pottery. Hopefully I can occupy my little man with a nice long movie soon, so I can try to find some more STAMPING TIME!!!
See you back here next week, but in the meantime, come by and visit me at my blog too! Have a terrific weekend!

I love this paper, too and I would not have thought to make a baby card with it.
Perfect! (like you)
I look forward to seeing your cards here every week. You and Susan are so inspiring! Thanks!
