There's a baby boom at the office and I've been warned that there are six maternity leaves coming up at the office in the Communications department alone, so I have been asked to keep baby cards on hand. So I'm trying to squeeze one in every time I stamp these days. Leafing through old Paper Crafts publication, I found a card with little birds made with buttons. Reminded me of the Button Buddies stamp set, so I pulled out the Subtles Designer Buttons, selected colours that could work for a baby card, and then used scraps of Designer Series Paper at the bottom to match the buttons. As a last minute addition, I decided to add smaller buttons in similar colours on the paper scraps as well. A piece of White Cotton Ribbon was tied, a sentiment from the And Many More stamp set (Annual Catalogue, p. 105). Baker's twine in shades matching the buttons was used to thread them. Simple but cute and more importantly, gender-neutral with all the colours used.
