It's in the (Diaper) Bag!

Howdy folks! Just wanted to get a quick post up to show you the card that I designed for my best friend's baby shower.


I had an overflowing designer diaper bag in mind when I created this card. I'm not sure if I achieved the effect that I wanted... It may be mistaken for an overflowing tote bag instead. Oh well!

I picked my cardstock and ribbon to coordinate with my Foof-a-La patterned paper from Autumn Leaves and added pink ribbon with a bow to hide the seam. I attached my handles with brads and looped a couple of plastic pacifiers on ribbon to the front. I adhered another strip of patterned paper on the inside. I cut the paper longer than the card to suggest baby bottle holders on the sides. I also only added adhesive to the sides and bottom to create a pocket in which I stuffed die-cuts of toys and other baby paraphernalia. (Could also hold a gift card...)

The finished size is approximately 6" x 7.5".
