One Little Baby

This is my post on the Dies R Us blog today!!

Merry Christmas Eve to you!!
Celebrating Christmas is all about a baby being born!
It just so happens that at Dies R Us a new baby boy
was born to the Dies R Us family as well!
Being a mother to a son born in December I know how
special it is to have a December baby...the best Christmas present ever!!

I decided to make a baby card to celebrate the occasion!
I used one of my very favorite embossing folders,
Quilt Blocks by Darice .

I embossed two panels, one in white and one in blue.
I cut the blue panel apart and paper pieced every other 
quilt square blue.

A bit of rick rack was added to slightly separate the squares.

I stamped my sentiment using SU Curvy Verses
onto Spellbinders Lace Hearts.
These are no longer available here, but if you just type
in the word 'hearts' in the search column,
eight pages of hearts will!!

I used Impression Obsession Sailboats,
cutting it 3 times.
Once from a white craft foam to build on,
once from a blue paper and once from a striped,
then it was all paper pieced  together.

To finish, I simply added a few blue sequins for a bit of 'bling'!

Don't forget to visit our 'sister' blog which is our Dies R Us challenge blog
and full of inspiration as well as a challenge for 'you' to join in
and a chance to win a prize!

Have a very Merry  Christmas!!

I really super duper love this, Diane! Got a thing for baby cards, anyway, and this with the quilted background and sailboat is just too adorable! Love the striped sail. Sailboats on cards are always so cute for boys. Been thinking I need a sailboat die. Yet more inspiration!
