This past weekend we got to meet the sweetest new baby girl. I got out my sewing machine before her arrival to make a little ribbon blanket swatch for her and of course a baby card. Can you spot some new products on the card? I could not wait to play with two of the new sneak peek products (now don’t you want to be a demonstrator so you too can take advantage of the sneak peek?!). I had some old retired pretty in pink scallop edge note cards from several catalogs ago that I have not used up yet so I grabbed one of those and used the new Modern Mosaic embossing folder. Then added some chocolate chip card stock with the new Mosaic punch. Add a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and coordinating framelit and viola a sweet little notecard to go with the present.
I love making these sweet little ribbon blanket swatches. My eldest had one when she was a baby and would rub it on her face and play with all the fascinating ribbons. When my second child was on her way, I made one for her using some of the Stampin’ Up! fabric and coordinating it with her quilt and bumpers for her crib out of the same fabric. I have an abundance of ribbon (I might have a ribbon addiction) and this is the perfect way to use some of those old retired Stampin’ Up! ribbon spools for me. When I realized how quick these were to make I decided that since they were a success with my own girls that they would be great presents for friends and relatives babies. So every once in a while I pull out my sewing machine and make a few with my Stampin’ Up! fabric and ribbon. When I found out that my husband’s cousin was coming to town with her new baby girl, I just knew I had to make one for them. Hope their little girl enjoys it as much as our did.
