Congratulations and 100 posts!

I can't believe this is my 100th post! Yay for me - I've never blogged this much about anything before!

I made a few cards this week by special request - two of which are baby shower cards that simply say 'Congratulations'.

One was to be unisex (sex unknown):


And because I lack originality I made the second card, for a girl, similar to the first:


I made the 'quilt' squares using my 1" punch. By gluing the squares down to a piece of cardstock matching the base card, I was able to line the squares up without worrying about the quilt sitting perfectly in the middle of the base. I then glued the quilt down to the base card once I was happy with it. I love to cheat in these little ways... it keeps me sane!

The faux stitching just makes these cards - they really look stitched to me. It was my first attempt too... Love it!

I printed out the sentiments using my printer as I don't have any "Congratulations" sentiments small like this (one of the main reasons I love going digital) using the "Blackjack" font. I used my fake word window technique to finish them off.

Size of cards: 4" square

Card/paper - Stampin' Up Very Vanilla (unisex card) Quill white cardstock (girl card), Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo "New Born" and Kaisercraft Peek-a-Boo "Lullaby" (unisex card) Kaisercraft Child's Play "Hopscotch" (girl card)
Ink - printer
Tools - Carl rotary trimmer, Helmar glue runner, Sullivan's 1" square punch, Uniball Signo white gel pen, Canon Pixma printer, 5/8 circle (for fake word window)

Thanks for looking! Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
