Baby Boy Congrats!

My admiration for artists that make baby buggies out of die-cut circles inspired me to create this card.

Penny Black's new "Cute As A Button" slapstick set is not only adorable but also versatile.  I like getting two different sized buttons from one stamped impression.  Even if I just need one or two at the moment, I can save the rest to customize for future embellishments.

I used a combination of Nestability circles and scallops with Penny Black's new Mix & Match cardstocks to create the card base and buggy.  The green die-cut circle was created from white cardstock and colored with Copics to match the buttons.

If you need a tag rather than a card, just sneak a loop of ribbon up at the top before you attach the front and back layers together.

Next week starting on Monday, I have a fun four-day event to share with you.  I hope you can join me. 

Enjoy your weekend,
