As soon as I saw the “I Dig You” set in the new catalog, I knew I had to have it! Having so many new little boys coming into our family, I could see where it would be put to good use! First off, I needed a baby congrats card, so I went to work!
I used a bunch of fun new In Colors on this card, and did some markering to get the animals popping out of the top of the dump truck:
The background is done using the new Stripes embossing folder and Lucky Limeade ink, and was shown at convention (but I can’t remember by whom!). Ink the embossing folder on the raised side using a brayer and the Limeade ink, then run it through the Big Shot with a square of Whisper White cardstock. Reink the embossing folder, turn the cardstock a quarter turn, making sure the stripes are perpendicular and even, and run it through again. It makes a wonderful embossed “gingham” effect!
I used a tag from Lots of Tags and stamped my sentiment and a little heart from Itty Bitty Bits in Tangerine Tango, anchoring it with a new Polka Dot In Color brad, and added a fun layered sentiment on the inside, using a sentiment from Petite Pairs (I have used that set SO much already!):
