Ten Fingers and Toes

A friend is having a baby and her shower is coming up.  I wanted to put together a cute card for her.  I had also attempted to loom knit her a baby blanket but it came out more like a superman cape (but really light on the "super" part!) - needless to say that project will not be getting posted to the blog!  I did tell her about the failed blanket though and she got a laugh out of it so it wasn't a complete loss.

Although baby stuff is so fun to shop for I thought I would get her a gift card instead so she can pick up anything from her registry that she didn't get.  So I just created a pocket with a piece of the pattern paper using some scor tape to stick it down.  Hopefully Toys-R-Us gift cards are the same size as an Albertson's Shoppers Card since that's what I used to make that fabulous faux gift card you see in the pic.

I used an old stamp set I have from Provo Craft.  I wasn't sure it was going to stamp well since it's so old it's turned yellow and the rubber is horribly sticky.  It worked though so I'm really happy I was able to use it.

As usual I stamped the images and sentiments on Neenah card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the card is a standard A2 size.

Additional Supplies:
Sam's basic card stock for the base
Pattern Paper - DCWV Boyhood Stack
Copic Colors - N0 and B91
I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Faded Jeans (I also stamped the little safety pins on the inside with this same ink)

I still feel like the front needs a little something - maybe a ribbon bow.  I'll have to see what I can find in my stash to fix that problem.
