Today is the final day of this month Flourishes Sneak Peeks. The set featured to day was designed by Marcella Hawley and is called Hello Baby!.

I created this card for my brother and his wife. They had a little baby boy yesterday. Well….not so little. He weight 9 lbs 8 oz and measured 22. 4 inches. I heard he has black hair just like my brother did when he was a baby. I can’t wait to see pictures. I wish I could hold the little darling. His name is Johannes, which is a family name on my Dad’s side. My uncle, my grandpa and several other male in my Dad’s family tree owned that name (German version of Johns, Hans for short).

I stamped the onesie in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on patterned paper. It was cut out and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Tear Drop Circle Nestabilities die that had been sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The layers were adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lattice Pendants die.

A piece of MME Lost & Found 2 Blush patterned paper was embossed with Elegance M-Bossabilities and sanded. A strip of patterned paper from the same paper pack was adhered over the embossed layer before it was stitched to a slightly bigger piece of Kraft cardstock. Ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip and topped with a button before the layers were adhered to a card base, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die out of white cardstock.

A sentiment from Tag Lines was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink. It was adhered to the lower left of the Onesie. Rhinestones on the upper right and lower left finish off the card.
