Here are several cards I have made in special honor of our son, Conor. I'll start it with my favorite one which is his birth announcement using the Teddy & Train (item #115219) stamp set. The 3 eyelets, aka the onesie snaps, at the base of the onesie card were set using the Crop-A-Dial. This tool is amazing as it can circle punch and eyelet set through chipboard, tin, and multiple paper layers with ease. I love how the Conor name tags on the side of the onesie make it personal and these were easily done on our computer in a word document.
Again, using the Teddy and Train stamp set, these are the thank you notes we mailed out to our friends and family who spoiled Conor. The twill tape (item #105245) with the "Thank You" sentiment adds a soft touch to this card. I stamped "Thank You" in our chocolate chip classic ink to match the chocolate chip inked rattles in the background. The natural color of this twill tape works great as shown below, however, it can also be dyed with SU! classic refills for color coordination on your projects or you may decorate it with rub-ons. This tape lasts a long time as you get 9 yards per package with 3 yards each of 3/8 inch (used below), 3/4 inch, and 1-1/2 inch twill.
This is the card I designed for Conor's Baptism invitation. It is a very simple and delicate card. I love the chocolate chip and bashful blue color combination. It's so easy to color coordinate your cards and scrapbook pages as SU! offers cardstock, designer series paper, inks, ribbons, etc... in a wide range of their exclusive colors.And I could not resist putting an Irish Blessing inside the card for Conor's Baptism Day!
