Sweet Baby Inspiration

Welcome to the first Papertrey Group Post this month. Today the Design Team + Nichole will showcasing two new baby sets coming out this month on the 15th. I'll be working with Sweet Baby today. This set has the most adorable, chubby animals with coordinating die cuts.

For my projects today I made a set of cards to give to the expectant mother all wrapped up with a little gift card. Below are the set of cards I created...I'll probably add 2 more of each design to round out the gift set. I used colors of Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise. A little twist to the traditional baby pink colors we see so often on baby items.
I kept the card design the same so that I could mass produce elements such as the scalloped pieces of patterned paper (Sassafras), the sentiments, and the stamped heart borders. I switched out the inks to match each main color of the card. Cohesive but a little mixy matchy.
Look at these adorable die cut + stamped baby animals. So adorable and larger than I expected which I love! These look like little embellishments you'd purchase in a scrapbook store. I used Vintage Buttons to coordinate with the color of ink used on the stamped animals. The bottom strips of Bitty Dots papers also coordinate with the main color on the card.
To package my cards I used a large cello bag so that the cards would peek through.
To fancy up the packaging I created a large onesie that I stitched and added a few Vintage Buttons. The Onesie die is a new addition to the Shape Up Series. Perfect for baby or little girl projects.
On top of the onesie I placed a little gift card using the Tiny Envelope die with a small enclosure card. The green script sentiment on the card is from Bundle of Love, also being introduced into the baby lineup this month. A little ribbon + a tiny clothespins + a snippet of stapled on paper adds pretty little details to the ensemble.

Hope you enjoy! For more sweet baby inspiration, please visit the other Design Team blogs:

Like your card set isn't cute enough and then you packaged them in such a precious way. Love the onesie decoration (and the fact it's a die is even better). Great choice of colors with your layout.

I love it. If you owned a little shop where you sold all your vintage findings and handmade creations I think I would be there everyday! Not only do I just love everything you make but your photoscapes are amazing. Thank you for sharing your talents. I come to your blog regularly but I just don't say thank you enough!!!

My favorite, so far. You blew me away today. So many different elements on your project. I will have to look at it over and over just to figure out all you used on it. I just bought Vintage Picnic yesterday, so can't wait to see more from you with it too!
