Sweet Baby Girl!
I finally drove down to meet my friend Christine's new baby girl today. Well, she's four months old already, but still new! OMG, she is the sweetest little angel of a baby I have ever seen!!! She smiles and coos, snuggles into your neck when you hold her, and rarely cries, even when she gets her immunizations! AND she's slept through the night since day one!!! Christine knows, and appreciates, just how blessed she is.
So, I had to make a card and a little box for the gift I took. Thanks to the gift box class, the box was a piece of cake! I found that the sturdy glossy white paper used to back the SU Designer Series Paper packets was just the ticket for the bottom of the box. For the top, I needed something heavier than DSP, so I used Core'dinations for the top. Topped it all off with a strip of Old Olive cardstock and ribbon, then a medallion like the one I did before, only I colored the open flower with a pink Copic marker and added a pink rhinestone. Oh, and I edged the white oval with gold EP. ;-)
