A JustRite Baby Card and Tag Set

For little girls . . .

 For little boys . . .

Guess who’s adding baby cards to her stash?  Pretty shocking, but I’ve never made and sent a baby card.  It’s one of those things that always catches me off guard and then I go buy one.   Not now!  These were so fun to create and so, so easy. 

After making the card, I made a tag to go along with the card.  The tag, which is shaped like a baby bottle, is double-sided so an additional sentiment or handwritten message can go on the back.

Baby Ensemble Supply List
JustRite Classic Oval Stamper II Spellbinders Labels 1
JustRite Baby Stamp Ensemble Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large
JustRite Vertical Stamper Set Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small
JustRite Trompe Script Lowercase Font Spellbinders Nested Birds
JustRite Brayton Uppercase Font Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Square Large
Colorbox Chalk – Rouge Ink Spellbinders Symbology
Versacolor Raspberry Ink Fiskars Border Punch – Apron Lace
Adirondack Denim Ink Martha Stewart Heart Border Punch
SU Brocade Blue Dye Based Ink Heart Punch
Dena’s Closet Paper Collection Pearls
Strathmore 140lb Watercolor Paper Ribbon

For the cards I layered the base with staggered sizes of paper and sandwiched the Apron Lace punched border between the last two layers.  I find it easier to stamp my elements before I cut them, so I stamped one sentiment center from the JustRite Baby Stamp Set – in my pictures you will see mine are trimmed – that’s just my OCD at work.  These are normally oval shaped but the trimming doesn’t affect how they interlock with my stamp mount whatsoever.  Then I stamped  the oval framed stamp border from the JustRite Baby Stamp Set.

I tied on my ribbon then assembled the main focal elements by cutting two Spellbinders Labels One dies at the same time to make my frame.  (Many have asked how you do this – if you are using a Wizard, the newer version comes with a magnetic spacer plate.  Once you place your dies on the magnetic plate they won’t move – you are then free to run them through the die cut machine and by cutting both at once they create a frame. Check out THIS post if you want to see my step by step pictures where I have done this on another card.)  Inside the Labels One frame I placed a stamped oval that I cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small.  Popped up over those layers I placed a stamped oval frame which I cut with the appropriate sized Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large and Spellbinders Classic Ovals Small, at the same time.  

To finish I added the tiniest of the Spellbinders Nested Birds and used one of the elements of the Spellbinders Symbology set to make a "branch" and finally pearls.

For the tags, using the new JustRite Vertical Stampers made stamping out the tags a breeze.  I paired with the new lower case JustRite Trompe Script Font with my favorite JustRite Brayton Font  to get proper casing on the words.  The best thing about the new Trompe Script Font is that there are a gazzillion letters in the set.  On the tags I had every letter needed so that I could do just one stamping of the tag.   The picture below shows how the stamped part of the tag was set up using a Stampmajig to nail the placements.

The stamped panel is layered onto a panel punched with the Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch.  I then topped it off with a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Square Large die cut that I cut in half, punched with a Martha Stewart Hearts border punch then trimmed to fit in hopes it would look vaguely like a bottle.  The other half of the Scalloped Square was used on the back side to make for a double sided tag. 

The ensemble was a pleasure to create and hopefully I’ll keep my stash stocked with baby items so that I can celebrate by sending a hand stamped card.  Just a note, as you read through my rather long post, I try as hard as I can to be as verbose as possible by typing out full vendor names and giving you links to many of those items.  I know that it seems rather repetitive, but my hope is that I can answer your questions, before you have to ask.  Thanks for stopping by!

  • Deanna CollinsMarch 29, 2009 - 2:50 pm

    Oh Becca, these are beautiful, elegant, adorable, sweet, cute, and any other adjective available! I so love looking at everything you create! You are my idol and I strive to emulate your work, which isn’t easy!! Thanks for the list of supplies and tools. That sure helps make it easier to decided what I need to add to my ever growing craft room. I have only recently seen work that was done with the JustRite stamper and I am so torn as to which item I need to concentrate on now. I have just started with the Nestabilities and have the square, circle, oval, rectange and long rectangle classic and scalloped sets. I still NEED to get the petites, the smalls, etc., etc., etc. But now, I now I Must have the JustRite Stampers too!!

    I am grateful to my Savior for the talent he has blessed me with and my love for creating. I am even more grateful that he has helped me to find such wonderful people with an even greater talent than mine to help me to grow. Thanks again Becca and please keep up the beautiful work. I saw your work in PaperCrafts Magazine and knew immediately that it was yours. Who could miss? Congratuations on being published.ReplyCancel

  • Jan ButlerMarch 29, 2009 - 3:05 pm
