Baby Boy Thank Yous, part 2

I think I’ll have 4 posts in this series. I made duplicates of several of these cards, depending on what supplies I had on hand. It was fun to match up each card with a recipient!

I designed this one on my Silhouette, then tried several different combinations. I like it, but I don’t love it. This is another one that I’d like to revisit and change up a bit. I have definite preferences for some color and pattern combinations than others. I was working with a limited stash, and felt like I needed to use as much as I could, even if I wasn’t thrilled with the results. These are posted from my least favorite to my favorite of this set.

Baby Boy Thank yous

The first of a few posts with some thank you cards that I made for gifts, meals, etc. after Monkey was born.  I like some more than others. Which one is your favorite?

Proof that I need a stamp positioner. I’ve seen some DIY versions that I think I might try.

This one almost made it into the top 3.  I just like it. The design is simple and understated, but the patterned paper makes it fun and eye-catching.

I loved the embossing of the foot stamps. It really emphasized the fine lines and little imperfections that make them seem real. The embossing on the sentiment is less than stellar. I should have redone it. Leaving a smidge of border around the edge would have been an improvement. This one just begs for dimensional adhesive!

I’d love to hear your thoughts about which ones you like best, or what could be done to improve them. I know that dimensional adhesives would work to really add layers and interest to several of them. I just bought some, and I’m sure they will be a new addiction in papercrafting! I also think that the paper choices in several of them could be better. I bought a bunch of single sheets, and a collection would likely have worked better. There are some lovely boy themes out there!
