Big Note Baby Card

I started out trying to do a CAS baby card stealing an idea from the DD's Christmas card. First cut out a SU Big Note die from a piece of copy paper, lay the copy paper on top of an A-2, then sponge around the edges inside of the cut out. Stamp a sentiment in the white part of the center, and call it done!

Thing is, when you have a big edge around that cut out, it's kinda hard to see if you are centered on the A-2 or not. Ooops. So I cut the card apart and layered the white trimmed down portion on Sweet Blush (I used Sweet Blush and a wee bit of Hibiscus Burst to sponge with), then tied on some Sweet Blush twill and some of Papertrey's white with silver- then dangled some baby booties charms from that.

I love the verse, it's from Verses Rubber Stamps.
And just in case you are wondering, the closing went very smoothly (apparently it helps when you pay cash, lol!!). In town it was 0 degrees F by the evening, but we were toasty in our little cabin with the wood fire going! We took 2 camp chairs and a blow up air mattress, a coffee pot for the morning and lots of blankets! In the morning I sat and watched the old man skin off into the distance, then just watched the snow blow across the lake, lol! Life really can't get much better than that, at least for us!
