The theme for the most recent Cute Card Thursday Challenge is "New Beginnings." How convenient...my husband's cousin just had a baby boy, and I still need to send her a card!! Here's my creation!
I love to use stitching on baby cards. I think it adds such a soft and cozy touch. Here I used floss for the stitching because I thought it had a rope-like appearance that goes nicely with the nautical theme. I cut apart the sentiment, so I could curve the "baby" part on my acrylic block. I was trying to mimic a wave with the overall layout of the sentiment. I also used pop dots to adhere the B-O-Y blocks to give them dimension!! Hope you like it!!
