Baby Rattle Card
I have recently started back to work full-time.....yes after being at home with my kids for 6 years we (Hubby & I) decided I should give it a try. It is a HUGE adjustment and am hoping with each passing week that the kids settle more and more in our new routine. And with each passing week I am hoping to find some consistent stamping time. I am pretty sure my nights will even out and I won't be so tired and need to go to bed so early. hehehe I did manage to find some stamping time tonight! It seems that I am WAY behind on my baby cards. Which means I need to find a quick and easy card that I can make a whole bunch of in next to no time. Those types of cards are my FAV!
Here is a baby boy card I made using the Button Buddies stamp set. I guess you could place a button on the "rattle" part of the stamp but I thought that would be a bit silly as then you would loose all of the detail that this image has. Perhaps I should make one with a button so we can compare. I will write that on my "Cards I need to make" list. This card was fairly easy to make. It isn't that fussy for details and doesn't really have a lot of stamping. I did color the image with Stampin' Write Markers instead of ink pads so that I could get some different colors.
