Baby Blues

Who can resist a cute baby card?  I love the color combination of this card and think that while it may lean more towards a boy card, it could be used as a girl card too.  

This is using the new set from The{Stamps}of Life, Letters2Color.  This is a great set of letters that is perfect for either card making or scrapbooking.  I haven't used it on my scrapbooking yet, but I have a layout started that I plan to use these letters on.

I've been struggling with my seam binding and tying those cool, flimsy bows and think I finally got one that is close enough to what I was hoping for.  I need that perfect tutorial on how not to stretch and straighten them out when tying them ;-)



Card details:
Stamps: Letters2Color from The{Stamps}of Life
Cardstock: Kraft Like a Rockstar, Dish All the Dirt Brown, Marina Mist, A Blanc Check
Inks: Dish All the Dirt Brown, Copics B05, W1
Accessories: Seam binding colored with copic, white button colored with Copic, cappuchino twine from The Twinery

Cute Baby card, love the letters and the added seam binding. To lightly flatten you can use a Flat Iron, just make sure it's not super hot,or place your seam binding between 2 sheets of paper before quickly running through the flat iron.
