Baby Announcement – Adorable BibFeb 11
Another of my colleagues made this for swapping at my Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference and it's perfect for Sizzix on Saturday! This Baby Announcement would be great for either boys or girls-just swap the colors! I particularly like the use of the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#117335) for both the background and the adorable baby bib.
Supplies Used: Baby Prints Stamp Set (#125470, Wood-Mount; #125472, Clear-Mount); Tagtastic Hostess Stamp Set; Calypso Coral (#122925) & Whisper White (#100730) 8-1/2" x 11" Card Stock; Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper (#122355); In Color 2011-2013 Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack (#122384); Calypso Coral (#122939) & Pool Party (#122938) Classic Stampin' Pads; Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine (#113439); Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (#117335); Scallop Circle #2 Bigz Die (#113469); 3" Circle Originals Die (#122125); 2-1/2" Circle (#120906), 1/2" Circle (#119869), Decorative Label (#120907) & Scallop Edge Border (#119882) Punches; Daffodil Delight 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon (#119254); Stamp-A-Ma-Jig (#101049); Crop-A-Dile (#108362)
To make the bib:
- Die-cut the Scallop Circle from Designer Series Paper and the 3" Circle from Whisper White Card Stock with the Big Shot.
- Stamp image in center, then emboss the white circle.
- Layer on the scallop circle, then punch a scoop for the bib neckline.
- Punch 1/8" holes in a strip of card stock, then punch 1/2" circles around them to use for ribbon stops.
- Cover the edges of the bib to simulate ties after you've threaded and knotted the ribbon.
The adorable bib is easy to make in quantity because you can cut 3-5 circles at one time. If you use the Extended Cutting Pads (#113478), you can cut both styles of circle at once!
This Adorable Bib Card is versatile: To switch from boy to girl, swap Pool Party and Calypso Coral colors and stamp "it's a girl". Change the greeting for a "welcome baby" card.
