Papertrey Tuesday

Hi & welcome to my poor, neglected blog! :) Lots of fun happening in the Ellefson household these days - sorry for the absence! I wanted to show you a quick baby gift that I did up recently. Hubby was over in Germany recently, and a colleague that he was meeting with had a baby a bit early (like the day before hubby was leaving!). I like to keep kraft wrapping paper on hand for gift 'emergencies' just like this! Luckily, my husband ran out on his lunch break for the gift and dropped it off with me. Kraft paper to the rescue because you can stamp it to create whatever occasion you need! For this ensemble, I pulled out Star Prints and Inside & Out: Baby and got to work!

The card was completely inspired by this card by Geny Cassady. When I am tight on time, I am not at my creative best and the design process is my largest time-grabber, so the PTI gallery is a great resource. Geny's fun card really jumped out at me! Thanks for the inspiration, Geny! (Tons of PTI goodies on this - just give me a shout if there is something there that you have a question on!)

Here's a closeup of the package detail, too. I used the Seeing Stars Die Collection and the Polka Dot Basics II Impression Plate, along with the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages. The grosgrain ribbon is a roll of wide white that I had on hand - doesn't it look great stamped?

By the time hubby got home for dinner, this fun ensemble was already packed in his suitcase. Only you & I need to know just how quickly it all went together (definitely keep that little gem to yourself because I looked like a rock star!) ;)

Have a wonderful day! Be well.
