This project came about a little differently. I was going through a pile of stuff to put away and found a Make 'n Take project from a few conventions ago. It was a decorated chevron pocket that I had never used. Looking at the sentiment, which in French reads, "Life in pink," I thought the sentiment would be great on a girl baby card. Instead of pulling this set (already retired) to make a brand-new card, I figured I could reuse the elements from the pocket to turn them into a card. Recycling and saving time!
So the card background is actually the pocket that I cut apart to turn into patterned paper. I already had the sentiment with the glimmer paper circle and the olive banner with rhinestone and chevron ribbon, so using the Freshly Made Sketch #187 as inspiration, I cut a tag with the Apothecary Accents Framelits dies out of vellum and added heart-shaped holes in it using a die from the Mini Treat Bag Framelits set. The leftover vellum hearts were glued at the top of the card and decorated with rhinestones.
I used the Something for Baby stamp set to stamp the onesie and hanger, and used the matching Baby's First Framelits dies to cut out of the images.
