I designed this card for my friends' handsome baby boy, Jonathan! Jonathan was born 15 weeks early and after spending three and a half months in the NICU he's finally home!!! And...I'm thrilled to report that he's doing GREAT!!! It's truly amazing! I am so incredibly happy and excited for my dear friends and their little bundle of joy, so I just HAD to create an extra special card for them!!!
I always like the comfy cozy feel of cards created with stitching, but I'm definitely no seamstress!! I recently purchased a Bazzill Basics "In Stitch'Z" to help me out!! I used it on this card to create the zig-zag stitching around the edges. How did I do? Then I free-hand stitched the little swirly below the airplane. What do you think?
I wrote Jonathan's name on the banner to personalize the card! Cute, huh? Here's a close-up:
I hope your week gets off to a wonderful start! I'm heading to town to grocery shop and run errands!
